Perhaps, but if you look at the construction and layout and then take a 
good long look at all their other IA32 models in terms of interior 
layout, design, and construction, this looks like the only good quality 
item is the front plastic (sort of)... it doesn't taste like SGI 
designed hardware.  I'm going from a careful examination of all their 
legacy Intel PDF's and an intimate knowledge of the 320 from this last 
weeks service call.  (Turned out to be the power brick on the 1600SW)
