Silicon Graphics O2

Back to My Setups

The Silicon Graphics O2 is mainly used for graphics work, particularly because it has a DV card and an excellent camera which can be used to record movies in realtime. The SGI O2 runs the UNIX operating system called IRIX. SGI always build really cool looking machines. The O2 is a deep blue curved tower shape. This particular machine is actually the oldest model of O2 and was part of a batch of the first O2s sold in the UK.
