Dream PC – Holy Shit!

Engadget has just led me into THIS MONSTROSITY OF A PC:

Okay, okay. Let me get this straight. This is a PERSONAL COMPUTER. You know? That thing you can use for word processing, and um, the occasional Warcraft scuffle?

So why did they design it to autonomously battle tactical nukes? And I quote:

“three 1TB Samsung Spinpoint F1 HDDs (alongside two 64GB OCZ SSDs), a 4.4GHz overclocked Core 2 Quad Q9650 CPU, 2GB of Corsair DDR3 RAM, three 1GB NVIDIA GTX 280 GPUs”

Uh, this is parody, right? I think I’d have to hire a troupe of trained riksha drivers to manually pedal a dynamo for providing the extra power needed to actually USE this thing. Does the US army know about this?

This is unbelievable, you can actually BUY this monster for 20,000 dollars.  Well, no, you can’t. But I wonder who actually buys shit like that?
