Very nice machine... Only one fault it has. It is something expensive. Just this. I was asked software prices for system years ago. Yes I did myself...

Don't ask me. But I can say more then machine is.

I was asked "smallest one"... with reasonable software !

Yes, very expensive. For professional use only.

That system will be able to handle screens with 120 million pixels--the picture elements that make up computer screen images--and will be able to draw 40 billion pixels per second, SGI said.


But that is alot of power!
