Wow, I want one. I don't suppose they're in or near Seattle? (:

They're SGI's last Motorola 68k powered workstations. Pretty large
machines---deskside at least. I don't know what the power requirements
are. The IRIS 3000 series used 68020 processors.

They run older versions of IRIX, which is SGI's flavour of BSD-ish SVR4
UNIX. I think the last version to support the Motorola CPUs was 3.2. This
includes all IRIS 2000 and 3000 series machines.
