    You're not really comparing like for like though, these (and the Dell XPSs) aren't meant to be high end workstations for business, they're high end gaming rigs for the home and they demand the same premiums as any high end entertainment equipment.

    Yes, you can build an equivalent PC for less (and I assume most people on this forum do), but that's always been the case with home builds vs off the shelf. And I certainly doubt any IT manager with an ounce of sense would buy anything remotely like this for their business!

    Another article I was reading about the Blackbird yesterday mentioned something interesting; it'll be doing SLI and Crossfire on the same nVidia-based board. HP haven't said how, but they must have twisted nVidia's arm somehow.

    MOST HAPPY

    Well,

    Being that I work as a desktop lead for HP at there site in Fremont CA, it feels good that the company I work for comes out with high quality products. No, its no home built machine; but hey after working 8 hours a day on computers who the hec wants to come home and tinker with their machines even more. I look forward to the TV, internet, and other things. Well I am still a geek at heart so I do have a linux box and a sever setup and all the good stuff. But my main usage is on my good ole fashioned DELL. I support lots of people so when I come home I don't have an issue paying for a warranty. Call Dell and say hey send me another drive; they deal with RMA.

    Thanks

    aside from studying, I don't really have much else to do, especially in the heat wave we've been having over here.

    plus the uni labs allow me to tinker with some normally infeasible ideas.
