The SUN Machine Family:

Each member of the SUN Machine Family is built around a state-of-the art computer platform: a powerful processor backed by a large capacity hard drive and driven by the latest CD-ROM software. With modular design and IBM compatibility, SUN Machines can be upgraded at any time with a range of optional capabilities as service requirements change and grow.
Software Features:

Sun Machine 450 features new 5.0 software, which includes many new operational enhancements, and supports several new optional testing capabilities: pressure probe sets, a catalytic converter test, as well as expanded ShopKey and Snap-on Scanner integration. Further time saving automations have been incorporated to improve and further refine an already state-of-the-art software product.
