I use to work for a bank that had a very specialized Xerox printer with
a sorter for printing and enveloping statements.  It had an Ultra 5 as
it's controller/print engine, then was later upgraded to an Sun Blade
500 or 600 ( one of the flat pizza-boxish desktop ones, but I don't
remember the exact one ).

It was pretty cool to watch - it was about 10 feet long, at one end was
a stack of statement paper, in the middle was a hopper filled with
envelopes, at the far end was a mail bag ready t to catch the output.
It would print, sort, and stuff them ready to be mailed. Cool stuff ...

Anyway, both the Sun systems were normal looking systems, no special
cases or colors - the Ultra 5 was white/beige and the Blade was black.
