    That's a year's wages for some people o.@

    I'd love that machine, but all that proprietary software would be useless to me. I wonder how much it is sans software.

    Yeah.

    A friend of mine was looking at a computer....
    4 DVD burners (DL, fast, etc.)
    3 TB space
    4gb ram (8?)
    3.5ghz dual processor (approx, can't remember)

    Anyway, it was gonna be around $5000.

    I have no idea why that's so expensive. I guess some of it is software, but, really, looks like a high price to me.

    Note that my friend decided to get it because it was a waste of money and he didn't need all that. Heh.

    The base price on this model is $5000 something. But who can resist all those add ons? Liquid cooling? UPS, RAID 1?? I just want to say I have a 14K $ computer, LMAO

    Not to mention the 30 inch monitor with HD compatability, and you did notice the DUAL video cards? They need a 1000 watt power supply just for them! Halo online will be so cool!!! ROTF

    How fast is your internet connection? Ha. Halo... hmm.... I guess the graphics aren't sent through the net. Might work. That would be amusing though, if you only had dialup or something.

    Well... enjoy.

    I have my T3 fibre optic line now WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE fast.

    I could try to connect to AOL I suppose

    Of course if I do win the lottery the computer would be the LAST thing I buy... but I would buy it.

    I also designed an alienware laptop as well, it was a much better deal and came in at just under $9000 ROTF
