Sun Microsystems Ultra 10 in Enemy of the State (1998)

Wildlife researcher Daniel Zavitz uses the Sun to watch his video footage of the murder and to record it onto a PCMCIA card that he then hides in a TurboExpress handheld games console.

Importance: ****
Realism: ***
There's a lot of unrealistic video zooming, and David writes to the PCMCIA card using the Sun's floppy disk drive!

I did have a PCMCIA card reader/writer for mine, and that's possibly what we see above the floppy drive in the first and second photos. I'm guessing it wasn't as good looking up close...

I also have a PCMCIA reader for my Ultra 10 workstation. I agree, the video editing/player seems too good frame rate and he is able to shift the video too fluidly. But it's still a great machine even today, (mine) with its 440MHz 64-bit CPU and 768Mb RAM. In fact, for fun, I posted this using my Sun Microsystems Ultra 10 running Solaris 10 with Firefox.
