The Espressigo, I couldn't live without my morning coffee.

Anybody who has an extra over for me?

Edit: In all seriousness? Probably the original Indigo (it was my first) or an Onyx2 deskside. I love the Origin/Onyx tech.

Tough one.

The Indy always has a place in my heart as it's the first SGI I owned (complete with 20" hernia-inducing granite monitor), but it's so crazily slow compared to the later systems that it's not really something you could get a lot of work done.

If space, power consumption and money were no object, I'd love an Onyx2 deskside but in reality just a well specced Octane2 would be the best compromise :)

A Reality Center room, obviously, though I'd settle for a standup screen model. http://escience.anu.edu.au/lecture/cg/D ... en.en.html

Just one? This one would fill that requirement very nicely: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=16729059
