Christmas in August if you are in Montreal/Canada – sale of SGI O2, Octane2, ONYX RE2 and Origin2K deskside

After a long debate, due to change in my circumstances, I have decided to sell my remaining SGI collection. So, for a sum of mere $600 CAD (if you are in the US, even less) the following is for sale:

1. SGI O2 (see photo and hinv below) in working order, but due to software licensing I can’t give you the disk, though I’ll include the disk caddy, reasonably good skins
2. SGO Octane2 (see photo and hinv below) in working order, but due to software licensing I can’t give you the disk, though I’ll include the disk caddy, fairly good skins
3. SGI ONYX RealityEngine2 deskside (see photos and hinv below) AMAZINGLY in working order with a memory issue, I am including the disk drive, plus a converter board that allows ‘regular’ PS/2 SGI keyboard and mouse to be used, a 13W3 video cable, amazingly good skins
4. SGI Origin2K deskside (see photos and hinv below) in working order, but due to software licensing I can’t give you the disk, though I’ll include the disk caddy, plus an extra power supply, and extra MSC controller, I think one, maybe two, extra star routers, other cables, amazingly good skins
5. Any miscellaneous stuff if you are willing to take, O2 cameras, additional cables, whatever I have left.

I would like to sell all this as a lot, so one lucky guy (or gal) can get a decent collection of SGI stuff.

Of course, there is a catch! It is for local pickup only in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Also, the two servers are on the second floor, so you also need to supply a few of your friends to safely carry it down and away.

Message me here or contact me at pixeldust1@hotmail.com

Thanks!

Extremely interested. I'm in Ottawa and am looking for desksides.
Are both of these capable of running on normal 120v power?

Hello,

Yes, both deskside servers were used on a 120 circuit. The circuit though is dedicated and it has 20A rating.

Usually it doesn't happen, we are bad-boys and Santa Claus will end giving us only a basket of coal :lol:

Well, judging from what moves on ebay in USA they have much more opportunities there.

Have you ever been in Africa or Asia? They have less opportunity than us in Europe. Even in UK they have more opportunities, e.g. if you want to import something from Moates ... you might find discount if you happen to live in UK.

Last time I asked Nicolle to give me a favor. She lives in UK, and the seller didn't want to deal with outsiders. He didn't want to ship abroad, thus forget the discount with Moates!

I asked miss-pipeline to be my personal forwarder, and we managed a three way handshaking. The parcel was light, something like 200g, and the trick worked :D

The same trick might be applied if you know someone (some good friend, or ex-girl friend who doesn't keep anger because you left her) who lives in USA or Canada.

Anyway, still looking for a C3750 and I will probably end putting 1K euro in a purchase from a pro-seller.

Even if you know someone in USA who has more opportunities, you have also to consider that these heavy-iron kind of things are always too expensive due to the shipping cost and import taxes. I mean, when guys at customs acceptance don't know the value of something like a big iron ONYX they apply a maximal value (1K euro? like if it was Ancient jewel? They they might think so, and you pay the 22% of it) and this costs you a lot of money.

Thus, you might consider the ratio, it might be inflated, thus you might end find that the purchase within Europe is more convenient (and doesn't take a favor to a friend in USA).

Might be, might be not. It depends.

I happen to have a cousin in Montreal, but I haven't been in there in four years so...

Everytime there is an Onyx available, it's always on the other side of the continent :( I agree Dodoid should get them. They'd have a happy home. :D

If for some any reason, Dodoid is not able to pick them up, I can drive from Toronto and get them.

Just picked these systems up. On my way back to Ottawa now.

Much carrying was done, and much awaits...
