Many. I've enjoyed using their kit for about the last 15 years, and hope to continue doing so (probably a generation or two behind) for a while longer yet!
Wrecks, I'm afraid. 4-330s are noisy, big and loud. IPCs and IPXs are too slow and small to be of any real use these days -- and I speak as a former IPX owner. I've always tended to take the approach that if I'm interested in a particular family of software, I'll try to keep the "best" machine I can that runs it. So that means my Indigo went when I got my Indy, and my Indy's obsolete now I've got my Indigo2. If I ever get an Octane, it's byebye Indigo2..... I'm not fanatical about being able to run every version of everything!

Who said anything about giving *you* SGI hardware? For all I care, you can do your increasingly...
Now that's a great exhibit and yes, worth keeping.
PETs I have soft spot for, never got into 64s.
The oldest x86 box here is the P3-500 and that works for its living.
I've had lots of Sun and Sun-clone kit through here, with a 5-170 clone still alive and my Sparcbook 3GX purely because it's a convenient spare room X terminal.
It seems that we're all singing from the same hymnsheet here, but perhaps not all agreed on our definition of "junk" ;)
