Onyx2 Deskside on Ebay Melbourne Florida

Unread postby tjsgifan » Tue Jul 28, 2009 7:19 am

There's a complete Onyx2 on Ebay at the moment http://cgi.ebay.com/SGI-Model-CMN-A015-ORIGIN-2000-Video-Server_W0QQitemZ350232753370 described as an Origin 2000.

Note that the seller has no idea about the machines and has made an assumption of spec, so what you see listed is NOT RIGHT. For one it's not a rack :)

But even so, there are 2 x RM9's, 1 x GE16 and a DG5-2/GVO which might be worth something still. CPU's could be anything though.

$250.00 starting price seems OK to me.
In order of use at the moment..... :Fuel: :O3000:

Currently looking to buy good :Fuel: and :O2: :O2+: machine.

Fuels and Onyx2's are next on my list to get..............soooooooo...I'll have to see how the bidding goes and maybe get a bid in. Since he allows pick-ups on Sat I'd be able to get over to the east coast then.

Man, apparently the northeast is devoid of Onyx2's....I just picked up an Origin2000 with some 300Mhz CPU boards...thinking about the IO6G/MXE hack...

At least he added "video server" so he's not totally 'out there'. :D

I'm Gadsden, AL and have an Onyx2 deskside. Not positive on the specs, but I can double check for anyone that wants to know. Just private message me if interested.

I live in Melbourne, Might consider picking this one up. going to stop by tomorrow to see if I can get more info about it or see it in person.
He has listed assumed specs and I'm not sure where or how he came up with those.

This guy normally deals in old electronics like a surplus shop.

Apparently not via eBay - the auction link in the original post indicates zero bids......

I know. Was just curious if someone had followed up and bought it outside of ebay. I'll message the guy and find out if he still has it.

Don't know if he or the equipment is still there, but a member in Cape Town was selling off his SGI collection - including two Onyx2 Desksides.

Thanks for that. :D I've seen the onyx2 up for sale on some sites, but at a crazy price. Well above what I could afford. Might as well ask though.

And if he was leaving the country in December 2008 then he's long gone by now. :D People bolt from this place at super rapid speeds. :D

I saw Melbourne, and was happy.

I saw Florida, and was sad.

(We have another Melbourne down here in the land of Oz, you see, but these are not the lands of SGI plenty)
