Very pleased overall with it in the end. Skins aren’t perfect but pretty good overall. As you can see from the specs below it’s an R10K 195MHz, with 384MB RAM and HighImpact (Non-HighAA, 1MB TRAM only) graphics and with the added bonus of a 10/100 network card too (Phobos EISA) and the vertical stand feet. And for extra fun as you can see in the pictures, it comes in the original box! That made it worth the 160 mile round trip alone Also came with an external HDD enclosure, external SCSI CDROM AND a DAT drive too as well as the keyboard & mouse - so quite a collection of spares all told.
I’m rather surprised at how fast the system feels - actually feels more nimble than my R12K O2 that I sold a few months back, though I guess it could all be just in my mind.
Didn’t seem to be any juicy software installed, so broke out the IRIX 6.5.22 media to reinstall it only to find that it was packing a whopping 2GB internal drive - and IRIX complained there wasn’t enough space to install, so liberated a 72GB 15K Ultra320 SCSI disk out of another system and reinstalled it successfully on that.
