I'm not sure how much "real work" could be done it, given its
relatively low power vs. any modern PC or Mac, but the O2 remains a
favorite for a few reasons:  it's small and light (for an SGI!), it
takes PS/2 keyboard and mouse, most of them have VGA video output
(mine works nicely on a KVM with my PeeCee boxes,) some have R10K or
R12K CPUs, and...hmm...it's cute?

Orginal IRIX copies till command a premium on eBay.  I'm not certain
what versions the O2 requires.
