Don't go to SGI remarketing --- their prices are a bit on the high
side. Try www.mce.com or www.reputable.com (actually there's quite a
few others out there). $2-3k takes you into the 2nd user O2 (the low
end) or 2nd user Indigo^2 (the high end) territory.

If I remember rightly, that's a review of the first Indigo^2's, and the
last Indigo^2's were somewhat different.
