The Sun Sparc 10. The granddaddy of all "supercomputers". This is the greatest computer that I've ever used. It is very powerful, super expandable, and VERY reliable. This machine is my primary computer and router. I do all of my web work on it and it is also the router between my ISP and my local network (I have a class C address space). I just can't say enough about how great this computer is!

It currently has twin 60Mhz SuperSparc CPUs with 1 Meg cache each (rated at 136 Million Instructions Per Second each), 192M of RAM, twin SCSI controllers, 2x2G internal disk, 3x4G disk externallly, a CD-ROM, a 32G 4mm autoloader DAT drive, ISDN, stereo audio, and a 19" monitor.

This is the Sparc 10. You can see it's external disk and drives stacked up next to it. It is just one hell of a machine. It never crashes! I've been using it for four years and never had a problem with it. I'm currently running Solaris 2.5 and 2.6 on it.
MAN, talk about engineering. This is the inside of the Sparc 10. The cards and CPUs are laid out so that they get maximum air flow over them from the three fans in the power supply.
