math is the same, but indigo2 prices are the different. you'd be very
lucky to unload even a top notch indigo2 for US$200. i recently
scored a 250mhz i2 for 3,000 yen. that and a couple 100 yen make for
a pretty cheap sgi set up -- assuming you have the monitor already.
indigos will cost you about 10,000 yen.

really cheap would be the indy. 1,500 yen. what with all the octanes
and indigo2s flooding the used market, no one wants these anymore.
