Some paid, some free.

Also brought home an E250, a TRS-80 Model 4P, and a Compaq luggable

Pardon my ignorance, but what is an E250?

Sorry - it's the Ultra Enterprise 250, the "little brother" to the Ultra Enterprise 450 (E450) that's at the bottom of the stack in the picture.

Ah, so it's a Sun thing! Neat. I was going to buy a Sun system recently but sadly, after a lot of back and forth, the item turned out to be sold. :(

It was a decently equipped Ultra 10...

I hope "decently equipped" included a SCSI card and drives. The IDE interface on the U10 and U5 were pretty bad.

I don't remember, but I do know it had the second-fastest CPU and a good amount of RAM. I'd rather have had a pizza box though, like a SparcStation 10, but Unix stuff in this area is extremely rare so anything was worth looking into.

A Dell 2407WFPb monitor, hopefully I'll get a half decent IRIX desktop now.

Should work. I've used them at work with a Fuel (using DVI) and Onyx2 (using a 13W3-VGA cable).

Tezro

Thanks to Mopar5150 my good friend and awesome SGI seller I am now in possession of an even better Tezro than I had years ago. 4x700MHz, 8GB RAM w/ V12 (no DCD, don't really need it tbh)

Its absolutely beautiful and massive. I'm never going to sell this. Although I may move it onto something like a table nearby because it is absolutely devouring an entire quarter of my desk alone. I unfortunately no longer possess that beautiful corner desk because it was stolen by very unethical roommates who also poured bleach onto the Onyx rack I sold to Vladio (glad you got it working if you're reading this man)
