it appears you didn't read my posts.  as such, you're simply raging against a straw man of your making.with respect to a reasonably fast PCIe SSD with 256GB, we have http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HD-020-MX since VAT does not apply to North America, 300 pound sterling is just over $500
Incorrect, but I'll let it pass.error on my part; I've since revised the figure.
Yes, that's why I figured the price differential (about $1000 or so) accounts for the unique architecture of the Mac Pro. Read the first two of my posts in this thread. I stated my assumptions therein.
http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.phpname=D3-18R16GHmea culpa; price is closer to $500 +
see my post on page 2.also, a slight correction: the Intel C600 family of chipsets might be better for the base model Xeon E5 than the Intel X79 chipset. the price delta would not be more than $150 between the two chipsets. As such, we haveIntel Xeon E5 1600-class CPU - $300Two Tahiti-based GPUs (Radeon HD 7800-class; 256-bit lanes) - $50012 GB RAM - $200Intel C600-based chipset - $550256GB SSD - $250If my math is correct, the total is $1800. The additional $1200 would...
 - a motherboard with an Intel X79 chipset -- which I believe can support Xeon E5's -- costs around $400 http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P9X79_WS/http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/chipsets/performance-chipsets/x79-express-chipset.html - the price of a 256GB SSD is around $250http://www.corsair.com/en/ssd/neutron-series-ssd/neutron-series-256gb-sata-3-6gbs-ssd.html so those two components would add $650 on top of the CPU + GPU + memory cost of $1000.  that would leave...
 With respect to the newly announced Mac Pro - An Intel Xeon E5 processor running at 3.7GHz is likely an Intel Xeon E5-1620 v2.  Released last month, you can get the CPU for $300 retail http://ark.intel.com/products/75779/Intel-Xeon-Processor-E5-1620-v2-10M-Cache-3_70-GHz?q=Intel%20Xeon%20E5-1620%20v2 - The FirePro D300 is probably based off the Tahiti core which makes it equilvalent to the Radeon HD 7800 series of GPUs released back in late 2012.  You can get a pair of...
Silicon manufactured by Samsung has resulted in some great Apple products.  it's good for all parties, including the consumer.
 a typical overly-defensive and inane reaction to anything that remotely resembles what an Apple product does or may do.  the PlayStation Vita TV is a device to play games; there are people who perceive it as enough of a threat to perversely warrant bashing it.
  Apple has filed an appeal http://www.pcworld.com/article/2043480/apple-appeals-368-million-award-to-virnetx-in-patent-case.html almost two (2) months ago.   In the meantime, the verdict stands: Apple has infringed on patents owned by another company.
