The new ultrathin clients are the Sun Ray 2, a low-end model, and the Sun Ray 2FS, a higher-end version that adds a built-in, fiber-optic connector and dual monitor ports, allowing users to simultaneously connect to two monitors as if they were one unified display. This is particularly useful for stock traders and engineers who need large displays for multiple data-intensive applications, according to Sun.
The Sun Ray 2FS also has additional connectivity ports and supports a higher, 1900×1200 screen resolution.
Both models have smart-card slots to enable “hot desking,” which allows users to use Java-based cards to switch devices on the fly, starting up sessions where they left off.
The Sun Ray 2 and Sun Ray 2FS are available now and are priced at $249 and $499, respectively.
