Yes. I'd go for that myself if I were in the market for more IP35 nodes at the moment. Note that "item 1" does not have an IO9, thus is not very useful without being attached to another unit via a numalink cable (around $40-60, possibly plus shipping). These will run Linux in single-CPU mode if you'd rather run that than IRIX, although the drives may well already have IRIX installed.
Someone about 20 mins from me is selling a nice looking Origin 2000 rack. http://www.ebay.com/itm/271907648495
Too bad I don't have the $$$ and a pick up truck.
Looks a little pricey for a 2000 though.
That looks like it's an Onyx 2000, doesn't it? The top chassis doesn't have any XIO slots (and some of the boards are rather suspiciously tagged "RM"), and the bottom chassis has an IO6-G rather than an IO-6. If you're careful, and you work with a friend, you should be able to take it apart to the point where you can lift the peices separately.
If I had space and power for it, and a suitable vehicle, I'd jump on that. Two days there, parts it until I can lift the bits into the car, two days back...
I didnt see the RM tags....hmmmm. Onyx or Origin, sadly I cant afford it atm no matter which it is. We have a baby on the way and I haven't started my new job yet. It saddens my inner geek when I see things like this locally and cant get them. I showed my gf, and after hearing its over 6ft tall and seeing the price, she laughed hysterically. I knew the answer answer immediately upon hearing her maniacal laugh. lmao.
I'd much rather drive to Cali for the Altix I posted a link to if I were going to spend $1.3-1.5k anyways.
Oh well....maybe once I start my new job, we move, and the baby is born....then I can get the rack system I've always wanted. I have no problem paying low for a nicely maintained unit, for home use, thats considered obsolete by enterprise standards.
BTW....all of you are evil......you've awoken my inner nerd to a new type of computer that can be had inexpensively. My gf will forever hate you all for the hell I will be putting her through in the coming future.
