The only downside of an I2 is that it's a bit on the noisy side

I wouldn't go quite that far myself, but Sun does seem to have spent a 
number of years producing machines that would be good desktop machines

As someone who does have SGI's in the computer room (sort of), I'd like 
to point out that they do quite well there although the options are a

Origin[23]000 for big installations.

large bundles of CD's to my desk from time to time).
