WTB: Challenge M

Unread postby korperlich » Sat Jan 27, 2018 3:14 pm

Anyone have a Challenge M in pretty good condition & with vertical stands, that they'd be willing to sell?

Yes, I know they're basically identical to an Indigo2 minus graphics, but I'm still looking for the Challenge M specifically...

Many thanks!

BTW, I actually have never owned any SGI hardware before. I've thought about it before, but never looked into it seriously. That being said, I don't really know tons about the various models... So I've got to ask... is the Challenge M like one of the most rare pieces out there? I know of them, but you can hardly find a halfway decent picture on Google Images. Does anyone here even own a Challenge M, even if they're not willing to sell it?

Honestly, I'd just as soon get a big old Challenge L or something, but alas, I haven't the space to put it...

Anyway, thanks much!

As far as I know the only member here who owns one is sadness, he hasn't been around in a while but you could try PMing him, see if he's still got it and if he's willing to sell. Link:
