All Ultra 30 workstations will be replaced by the superior
price/performance Ultra 10 and Ultra 60 workstations. The Ultra 30
workstations and upgrade products will transition according to
the following schedule:
- Last Order Date: February 12, 1999
- Last Ship Date: May 14, 1999
Lower-end Ultra 30 configurations have been assigned to the high-end
Ultra 10 configurations, and the most powerful Ultra 30
configurations have been pegged to the Ultra 60. All new
configurations are designed to closely match the price points of the
former Ultra 30 configurations.
The short lifecycle of the Ultra 30 workstation is not due to any
