Perhaps I am entirely too ignorant to conceptualize the significance of a "workstation" computer,but $8500 for a 320GB hard drive seems a bit high?!! Roll Eyes

It seems perfectly feasible to me,to take that $8500 and just invest it in a say-a Korg Kronos,& then take the remainder and buy a consumer grade PC & add your own upgrades for a stable set up.

Add an audio-specific Linux operating system to Thom's alternate rig (so you could max out on solid software choices), and you'ld have huge performance... and save 5000 dollars....

$8,500 and the liquid cooling system is optional. You'd think they could have thrown that in. Maybe HP has partnered up with BMW!

Looks like a video power station.
2 x 6 core CPU and a 4 core graphics card.
But 'only' a 320 GB harddisk, strange choice....
