I'm pretty sure that a lot of that money went towards the bag.

Description says the Hungarian nuclear reactors were designed on these and the files may or may not be on there. Even if they were deleted but not properly overwritten, they may be recoverable. I wonder if that has something to do with the price. A little scary, frankly.

That's practically what I paid for a quad 700MHz Tezro w/ multiple gigabit fiberchannels and full a DMediaPro suite last week... :shock:

Anyone can have a Tezro if they want. Only a few can have an Indy bag.

The only material that would last for a Tezro carry bag would probably be kevlar, those suckers are heavy... :shock:

I have three mint condition IndyBags sitting behind my desk. Maybe I'll be able to retire on them some day. The Indy's inside are unusual too, a dual head, an indyvideo+cosmo compress, and an XZ running ProE, all maxed out R5k machines. I used to have a 4th Ultra64 dev system with controller board and software and IndyBags but sold it for what seemed like crazy money at the time .... Should have held on to that.

Some nice Ultra64 eye candy here. The Nintendo/SGI alliance was one of the last things Jim Clark put together before he exited the business, or, more to the point, was driven out by the idiotic roadblocks thrown up by Ed McCraken and the BoD...

IndyBags used to be fairly common on eBay for a while. You almost never see them anymore. Gallery of some Indy related gear and bags below, don't think I've seen that many IndyBags in once place before:

For the longest time I was obsessed with finding Indigo and Indigo2 bags. Never came across one...
