Now here is the weird part. I looked up the SK-2502U keyboard and it
came up as a USB keyboard. Confused. Hope the box is not some
SGI 320 or 540 or so?
The machine was in use at a TV Studio as a Maya rendering machine
so I am assuming it had digital A/V as they are getting rid of all kinds
of digital video interfaces in addition to it.
