SGI Indigo

The Silicon Graphics IRIS Indigo is a UNIX workstation, used principly for 3D graphics, manufactured between 1991 and 1994. For its time, it had unparalleled graphics performance for a desktop workstation. Its practical uses as a graphical workstation have long-since been eclipsed by bargain-basement PCs, and technologically, the Indigo has been left in the dust. For regular use, however, the Indigo is still very capable, and it's become very popular among computer hobbyists, even for everyday use.
