  Any replies greatly appreciated.
I went to the release seminar at SGI in Chicago for these machines. I was so
impressed with the machines I ordered 6 right away. I was promised delivery in
1st week Febuary, I was later informed we would not recieve the machines till
mid march. Good luck trying to get one. According to the specs a Dell twin
450 xeon has a winspeed rating somewhere around 22. The Sgi rating is 29 for
the 450 PII . According to SGI the graphics are about 12 times faster than any
other graphics available today for NT arcitecture. I did see ProE running on
one and it looked faster than anything I had ever seen. If I ever get my
machines I'll let you know if its all true.
