For those who are wondering what’s inside this $16,338 PC, here’s a partial list: “four quad-core Opteron processors, 32GB of memory, dual Western Digital 300 GB VelociRaptor hard drives in RAID 1, 1TB Samsung SpinPoint F1s also in RAID 1, and four 1TB Samsung SpinPoint F1s in RAID 5.”

You’d think a monster of a system like that would have to be buried in a server room with a KVM extender lest you go deaf in half-an-hour, but apparently a good chunk of that money was spent on keeping the system quiet enough to actually use at a desk.
