There are more even exotic (expensive) designs out there
in the $100k+ range for Supercomputing Class Notebooks and Towers
but it then gets a little ridiculous.....IBM/Sony Cell, Sun UltraSparcs,
SGI RealityMonster, Gridded NVIDIA GPU2, Ten GHZ Diamond Substrate chips, etc....
My own Sony/IBM Cell Multi-Chip design fits in that category
but it is a graphics supercomputer that's a rather bit
beyond using for "normal" computing task...So I included ONLY computers
that if you wanted to spend a car-loan-like amount of money for,
you could have the most powerful computing notebooks in the world
or ultra powerful towers that would still fit under your desk.
I am still getting an iPhone 3GP phone because it truly is...
INSANELY GREAT !!!
