SGI and IRIX In the '90s, before MacOSX was released, if people were to reffer to a user-friendly Unix that looked cool at the time, that would have been SGI's 64-bit operating system for the MIPS processors, the IRIX. IRIX was first released in 1987, and by 1995 was already a highly respected UNIX, the first with immense multimedia capabilities! Check out our introduction and some screenshots of IRIX.

I don't know how much it actually uses (I don't have a Watt-meter handy). The sticker at the back says "110V, 10A, 850W", which I guess is about twice as much as a decent PC.

There's a big-ass 5" fan at the back, noisy but in a "low" sort of way (definitely not one of those whiny 6000RPM fans), that spits out some fairly warm air.
