    Waaaay to much for a desktop computer. What a shame.



    Yep, the last time I remember someone paying that kind of cash was decades ago when a former employer laid out $5000 for a DEC Rainbow system.
    At this point, there are no Power8 systems that would make a sensible single user computer.
