    Oh, sorry, I thought this referred to a decked BTO 12 core with the D700s and a 1TB SSD and maxed RAM.

    I'm sure it will be close.

    Not that close at all. You should be able to max out a nMP for about 14 grand ( http://gizmodo.com/a-fully-loaded-m...source=gizmodo_facebook&utm_medium=socialflow ) . And even if you get a bunch of 4k monitors to boot, you'll still be looking at only about 25 grand. In that light, the black nMPs are true bargains and the difference will be just money to burn.

    That's the estimate. The starting bid will probably be lower.

    I think they should have the made the PCB and everything RED.

    Right now it's just a shell.

    Weren't red PCBs usually associated with prototypes?
    Now that would be awesome to auction off since those usually pull a pretty penny anyways.

    I agree. I feel like there will be red aftermarket shells that will look similar.

    Yeah, I can see aftermarket ones.

    Anyways I'm personally most interested in the Atmos 861 clock... maybe the one-of-kind Louboutin boots (not for me of course :p)

    The regular Atmos 861 retails for as much as the estimate.
