The O2 Twins

Unread postby praetor242 » Tue Mar 14, 2017 12:46 pm

I got the second O2, which totally works (not bad for $99)

He's got a 180Mhz processor, and 64 megs of RAM, and just the audio interface. Surprisingly he came with an original SGI drive manufactured by IBM. I don't know how big the disc is, I'm installing IRIX now.


The twins together. The one on the right is the one the post office destroyed. My new one was shipped with 8 layers of bubble wrap and foam. :D

He also has a 180Mhz processor, and 160 megs of RAM. I got him free because his skins came shattered in a million pieces. I may replace them when I have the money.


I'm so excited :D
