Produced by Sun Microsystems in 1996, the JavaStation-1 was a Network Computer (NC) intended to run only Java applications.
The hardware is based on the design of the Sun SPARCstation series of UNIX workstations. As a Network Computer, the JavaStation lacks a hard drive, floppy or CD-ROM drive. It also differs from other Sun systems in having PS/2 keyboard and mouse interfaces and a VGA monitor connector.
The JavaStation-1 (part number JJ-xx), codenamed Mr. Coffee was the first production model and was based on a 110 MHz MicroSPARC IIe CPU. The computer was housed in a cuboidal Sun "unidisk" enclosure.
The JavaStation range of computers would ultimately be superceded by the SunRay thin-client system.
