Eight years ago a number of us bought new 600MHz V12 Octane2s directly from SGI for $600 (no, I didn't leave out any zeros :D).

There's some photos I took of the unboxing in the gallery: http://www.nekochan.net/gallery2/v/SGI_ ... 1/Octane2/

$300 for the Octane, plus $300 for the IRIX media, IIRC. And they wouldn't sell them to Europeans because of ROHS regulations :(

To accentuate the special identity of the IRIS 4D/70, Silicon Graphics' designers selected a new color palette. The machine's coating blends dark grey, raspberry and beige colors into a pleasing harmony. (IRIS 4D/70 Superworkstation Technical Report)

Probably because a year later someone from SGI was trying to flog the last 15-to-20 Octane's here for $595 (and by then the not-on-sale-but-still-being-offered-from-the-clearance-warehouse-everything-MIPS-must-go price was only $1195): viewtopic.php?f=4&t=13667&p=114965#p114965
