The 68000 dash 30fx!

And it's mine! All mine!

This monster is the first computer that I worked on professionally. It was purchased by my employer back in 1989 or 1990, reportedly for around $40,000 (though I never saw the purchase order.) It is essentially a modded IIfx in a giant steel case with oodles of space for disk drives and cooling gear. I haven't weighed it, but it must tip the scales at well over 50lbs.
