At the NESUG conference yesterday, there was a vendor (SGI) who
had some brochures. Not sure what the configurations are but you can
get them at (800)800-7441.

Subject: suggestions for computer spec
I need to buy a computer to run SAS on. Would like
suggestions as to specifications. I have a budget of
probably 5k to 6k. Regular desktop computer.
I am an academic researcher, probably the biggest
databases I would be looking at are the in 10 million
Dual processors? SCSI? How much RAM? RAID? Cooling
I have some experience building my own, but I am
guessing that I will have to go through a vendor that
is associated with the university. So please keep
that in mind.
I'm going to be pulling the trigger on this ASAP.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions.
