Hey animatortom and coolice these looks like machines made for you guys, as well as anyone who does major rendering work for that matter. In a desktop form I still do not get why you would not build your own, but support etc does count as well I guess.
Either way these machines look rock solid to me if you could not build your own, which I know many individuals would be afraid to try. All they need to do is hang out around here, and Marco/Lyaz could help them out right :)
I would love one of these for work! Unfortunately I'm stuck with an old mac pro. I mainly use maya and after effects. Large companies don't really allow building your own computers; they have contracts with dell or hp to get their workstations/desktops, it's cheaper that way because they buy in bulk. I'm sure smaller companies would jump all over this machine. This thing would kill the new mac pro's!!!!
Now you're just mashing it!
this is a really interesting case , but i will never be able to buy this =(( although im writing an iphone app and i think i will need a server for it :D
