    Could one configure a computer so powerful that not even Steve Jobs could use it?

    Is the separate Xserve Raid considered as the computer? They are two separate entities that do very different things.

    The Xserve RAID won't work without the computer right? therefore, I consider it to be part of it :p and since its a configureable option, it counts!


    The most expensive stuff was the memory (almost $24k) The RAID setup (just over $12k) and..... the MOST expensive was the OSX Server software support at FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Steve Jobs is almost God. There is no computer he cant use. But I wonder is Steve Jobs himself can build a comuter so powerful that he him self cannot use it.

    As for Bill Gates, he would steal Steve Job's bis arse computer and call it Windows God or something like that. lol.

    not bored enough...

    you missed the customization on the xserve raid. If you buy the one from the link on the xserve order, you can't add to it. If you customize it and add it separately, you can bump your price over $100,000 before tax.

    Actually no, I think you are refering to Steve's 8-core Powerbook G5 Tablet with built in iPod video dock for the new widescreen iPod, and wireless HD transfer communicator for the :apple: TV in addition to the slot loading iPhone drive.

    I hate it when people get the details wrong.....

    :p

    Well, now you've seen it again :D


    I'm sure, some where, there is some netowork running off one or more of those things. The computer itself really isn't that expensive if used for its intended purpose. Its all the support that is expensive.
