When I bought it, I though that I could use it as a regular computer, but it needs 15 minutes before it gets to GRUB, just to do its power on self tests. After that, the 8 big redundant fans makes it very disagreeable to use, plus the Ati Rage XL doesn't show rage at all when it comes to drive today's large screens. > > I'll try to sell it on Kijiji before this elephant makes a hole in the floor. :) > -Alexandre > LOL ...
