Or, if you prefer a $10,000 PC. :-)

    A coffee grinder from 2013. Ugly looking device but I'm sure it's fast. So, are you getting one or it's latest equivalent?

      Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Elegant design is lost on most people.

      Yes, I ordered it, on Friday. Getting a maxed-out 6-core. Will arrive the week of the 8th. I'll be running it with dual 30" Apple Hi-def Cinema displays.

      Heaven on Earth. lol

        That guy in the video, I recall him doing a PC review show up and till 2004 on a Tec Channel on DirectTV.

        Then it suddenly changed to a Gamer's show and he was just featured now and again. Unbelievably boring like that. Then Tec TV just vanished?

        Has it recently re-surfaced.?

        I always felt the need for a channel like that and watched it avidly.

    Ha! I used to watch Leo Laporte and his gang on Screen Savers (ZDTV) back in 1998 and had not seen him in a long time. Glad to see he's still around... It's a killer machine, and the design is quite cool compared to my ugly home PC boxes.

    Maybe Frank can send me one for my birthday or something...

    Cheers

      Well, I would have had someone send you mine when I died, but honestly, it's just perfect for storing my ashes.

      Cheers. - Frank

      P.S. Leo is the man. I used to love Tech TV as they were the only show that ever mentioned Macs.

    I guess he makes about 350K a year doing a syndicated radio show these days...

    The Tech Guy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    He also makes decent cabbage with his podcasting (netcasting) network.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TWiT.tv

    I first saw him on The Screen Savers on ZDTV on Dish in '98...ZDTV later became TechTV.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Screen_Savers

    Supposedly he still makes occasional appearances on several TV shows/programs. Check Leo here:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leo_Laporte

    My favorite tech guy on the show back in the day was his co-host and managing editor, Patrick Norton.

    Leo's Twit.tv looks like it may be fairly decent at first glance...

    The Tech Guy (Tech Guy Labs) is his nationally syndicated radio show (and website) and Twit.tv is his netcasting network. Two different operations...both still up and running.

    This is NOTHING! Look at the OLD APPLE LISA! He IS making it sound like a GREAT computer. With how HE talks, some of my customers might start buying them! 1GBps Throughput! That is about TEN times the speed of the 1Gbps ethernet it has!

    As for the cost of the peripherals? That happens all the time. I was SHOCKED to FINALLY see a 1TB SSD drive available, but about as shocked at the price! Less than $500. It didn't have 1GBps throughput though.
