Subject: Re: realistic SAS PC recommendations
I've been using a Pentium 150 with 64MB ram using Win95, and a Pentium
Pro 200 with 64MB ram using WinNT, and have been happy with both running
SAS 6.12. I've noticed that SAS v7 takes considerably longer to run
than 6.12--hopefully v8 will be better in this regard.
The one thing I'd recommend, though, since SAS is so I/O intensive, is
that you get a very fast disk drive. In fact, you might want to
consider getting separate controllers and drives for the SAS executables
and working storage, and your permanent SAS data.
