This is a (by no means comprehensive) list of vendors for 2nd hand SGI kit. Many of them I’ve used myself.
UK based vendors
- Ian Mapleson’s SGI Depot
Ian has refreshed his site, and has a lot of good stuff for sale. I can recommend his CD sets and OS installs – he knows what he’s doing, and you end up with a very usable machine.
- SGD Systems
Check out their clearance offers. They also tend to have a good stock of older parts.
- Rapid Technology Partners
I bought a load of Indys from them when Ian Mapleson was helping them clear a large amount of stock. Worth talking to – they have some good deals.
- SGI Warehouse
I haven’t dealt with Neil Stevenson, but Ian had some systems listed and the prices seem good.
I’ve dealt with Ian before – good prices, and he usually has some goodies in the software section.
Their website tends to be a bit out of date, but Cordnet have some good deals, and a large stocklist. Well worth giving them a call to see if they have what you need in stock.
- Danic Ltd.
Danic have some good stock and fairly keen prices – worth calling, as not all their stock list is online.
- AM IT Solutions
Formed by one of the chaps from RTP. Their website doesn’t have much stock listed, but they do good deals on older kit. Worth calling.
- Reputable Systems
Greg Douglas has excellent prices and is a great guy to deal with. Get one of his LED light bars for your Octane!
- Mini Computer Exchange
MCE have a good range of stuff, and quick international shipping.
- B & B Solutions Inc.
Based in Canada, they have some insane deals. Good guys to deal with
- SGI Remarketed Products
Refurbished and off-lease kit direct from SGI.
- Mashek Systems
Haven’t dealt with him, but his prices can be good. Usually has a good stock of VW 320s.
- XS International
I’ve heard good things about them, and they seem to have a good list of parts and systems.
