    Ultimate Machine or Price Tag?

    Check out the Specs for this BOXX computers and their price tag. It's frightening, you need to grow money on trees to buy one of those, or mortgage yourself.

    But I won't mind one for a birthday present.

    Professional workstation systems used by the likes of studios etc.
    Not your average "personal" PC although I daresay that the odd millionaire has bought 1 for personal use.

    Nothing to do with Scan or any one in particular, this being a site mainly about computers, i am sure it might interest one or two people.

    Thanks for moving it to the hardware section Agent , hoping you might send one my way.

    If anyone is looking at placing an order I suggest they go for the Advanced Configuration. The standard configuration only comes with 8Gb RAM which quite frankly is limiting these days

    I'd love to be able to upgrade my P4 to 32Gb RAM but sadly I don't think the motherboard supports that much!!!!!
