Well, it wasn't sold by SGI, except as a set of upgrade kits. The upgrades
would've consisted of a new CPU, new PSU, new PROM, and new card
cage---constituting a good deal of the innards. Most people just bought
new workstations, unless they had node-locked licenses that would've been
a hassle to transfer.

Generally, the purple box means "Impact Ready".
