My Silicon Graphics Indy. The KING of graphics! Silicon Graphics (SGI) computers are the favorite of Hollywood computer graphics producers. While most UNIX machines pick their friends very carefully, this UNIX (Irix) machine likes everyone :) ie, it's VERY easy to use.

This is the SGI Indy. The little black square in front is a MIPS 133Mhz CPU. The double-decker monster card in the back right is the XZ-Elan graphics card (this is the biggest graphics card that I have EVER seen (except for maybe a HP Visualize, but it's all heatsinks)). It has 4 GEs (Graphical Engines) and 1 RE (Raiszer Engine) and a hardware Z buffer (Great for 3D stuff).
