SSL VPN Starter Question

Hello all,
This is a newbie question on SSL VPN so please be gentle.
I know that SSL VPN requires some kind of hardware to run on.
My question is what are the pros and cons of getting either:
A)  A piece of hardware that solely runs SSL VPN, such as from Sonicwall or Cisco?
B)  Using a Windows box (I am not versed on Linux at all) to run SSL VPN?
What would be the best option of these two and what experiences have people had?
Thanks,
Kelly W.

A - cheaper, dont know abot soniwall but Cisco ASA comes with 2xSSL Licences out of the box, and prices start at about £300 its pretty easy to configure see my walkthrough here http://www.petenetlive.com/Tech/Firewalls/Cisco/SSLvpn.htm
B - Well you will need a server! bear in mind that Server 2008 supports SSL VPN's out of the box, failing that you will need some third party software on top of the price of the server, and the operating system - obviously if you allready have a server this is the cheapest option.
