Are they truly worth the price?
They are about $2,000 but they are very powerful. The quad core by itself is an amazing processor. There are higher procesors out to date but quad's are still rather high in the market. They are cheap at times at about $1,700 but these usually aren't worth obtaining.
Thoughts and opinions on the subject?
I think if I had a good $30,000 to blow off I'd buy one.. Other then that I'd pass. :]
