The second-generation tower model JavaStation computer includes the following enhancements to the original model:
microSPARC-IIep processor - The microSPARC-IIep uses less power and generates less heat than the microSPARC-II, eliminating the need for an internal fan.
Flash RAM and PPP support - Tower JavaStation computers come optionally equipped with onboard nonvolatile flash random-access memory (RAM). This flash memory can be used to store the JavaStation computer's operating system (JavaOS), enabling faster booting and wide-area network (WAN) applications for the JavaStation. In a typical scenario, a JavaStation computer would boot JavaOS from its flash RAM and then access the network over a low-bandwidth dialup Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) connection.
Autosensing 10/100Base-T networking - Tower JavaStation computers also integrate full autosensing 10/100Base-T Ethernet.
Standby switch - A soft touch press-on-press-off standby switch cycles JavaStation power and provides audio and tactile feedback.
