Seems that there are Tezro Days at ebay ;)
Three machines in Germany, one in the US.
Is anybody using a Tezro regularly?

I`m not here to judge because i own a simple and oldy Indy, and i`m a beginner but...

...they not, tezro`s are still quite expensive, if we want to agree it or not, noone want`s to pay 3-4K of $ or EUR`s just to "give it a shoot", cheap octane`s and fuels are better for this ... real pro`s will think 2 - 3 times before invest such sum of money and in such hw/sw that is EOL (ya ya supp until 2013 but we know what sgi think about Irix...)

tezro monsters are still not on the "abandonware line", certainly u not find one for free, or for "take it please i need space here" ... maybe in some months or years that will comme ...

from my pow - in other hand people like us, that are crazy for sgi machines increase the price on places like e-bay, because rare stuff that is wanted more and more has a price ...

i think tezro`s are ower-priced - i will give for it max 1-1.5K ? or i`m wrong ? dunno... :oops:

What`s about :) ?

Yes the price is the crucial point. Ok. Maybe if you professionally use IRIX to earn some money with e.g. software maintenance, CAD, video stuff then these prices are okay. Maybe. I could image that spare parts for Tezros will be more scarce than e.g. Octane parts in the future. They sold the Tezro only in a short period (compared to the Octane).

EOL doesn;t really bother me and I;ve been thinking 7 - 8 times about spending some real cash on one of those machines. But for the life of me I can't see how I'd get significant business value out of them. So i'm not buying...

I spent that much on a Fuel and rothers spent twice as much as me ... but that was several years ago. When I see Fuels sell for pennies now I feel kinda bad but otherwise, no complaints. A Tezro would be better :) If I weren't just newly self-employed I'd probably go for it. The $3,500 one, not the $5,000 one.

'newly self-employed'... I can relate quite well to that ;)

On the subject of the Tezro... does anybody know how loud it is - relatively speaking? If you look at the back of the thing it doesn't quite strike me as a 'fanless' design...

I'd say not as loud or about the same as a well equipped Octane...

That doesn't sound bad at all. The two Octane2 machines humming in my living room are barely noticable. :wink:

Those Octane2 are the least of their worries - the TP9100 and Origin300 (formerly 2 Quad-proc Origin200) are drawing _much_ more juice. You can't get into this gear without seeing it on the power bill.
