I am looking to find a good home for a few SGI systems I have in my possession. My brother purchased them years ago from Bentley auctions, which resells old equipment from Sandia Labs. Because I don't have all the necessary components, or an SGI monitor, I can't test the items as they are. However, before being put in storage, they were functional (they haven't been turned on in over 15 years.)
I am mostly posting this to see if there is interest in these systems. i currently live in Albuqeurque New Mexico. But I am going to be traveling through Arizona and Southern California next week. I would be able to bring these systems with me if anyone lives in/near these areas. Please let me know. I'm looking for offers. Because I can't verify the systems/parts functionality, I figure pricing is more complicated.

I am offering for sale the following item(s):
SGI Iris Indigo Tower
SGI Indigo 2 Horizontal
SGI Keyboard

I have images of the Iris Tower. i can get images of the Indigo 2 soon

Would you be willing to take off the front plastic of the Indigo 1 and open up the metal cage over the system boards? I'd be interested in a photo of the motherboard, to see if it's an R3k or R4k. It should be obvious from just the RAM SIMMs/sockets.

For most people the R4k is more desirable, but the R3k is what hits my childhood nostalgia. If that's an R3k and anyone else out there wants my fully tested and working R4k/Elan, I'd love to work out a deal...

(I'm in Tucson, AZ. I don't know what days you're coming through, but I'll also be in Phoenix for a few hours on the evening of the 14th.)

I'm interested in your Indigo tower, too. I've been looking for an R4K for a while.

Is the graphics card an Elan? Would you be interested in selling it separately?
