That's right, post anything cool that you found and might want and talk about it in this thread.
 
I found this cool micro pc the other day that I thought was impressive cause it has 512mb of ram and a 30gig harddrive.

Although after seeing the price tag I thought I could probably live without it no problem. :D

i've been wanting these for a while.

Hasselblad 905SWC, USD$6600


with a CF-39 (39megapixel digital back), USD$29,995


and then Sun Fire x4500 (aka Thumper, 24TB ZFS storage system), USD$60,000


more to come as i think of them :D

-edit-
a little spiel: for the photography stuff, i'm actually surprised H!P doesn't use medium format cameras for their PBs. in all the making of dvds (where i can catch a glimpse of the camera), it's always a tethered Canon EOS-1D/s. not that EOS's are bad cameras (i have one, they're quite good), but PBs could be so much better if shot with medium format. certainly for concerts and candids (or any other on-location shots) a mainstream SLR is a better option, but for studio shots there's simply no comparison to having a 39-megapixel 384MB 48-bit RAW image... and to be honest, USD$30k isn't all that much if you consider the amount of revenue H!P garners, more so if you consider that the EOS-1Ds Mark II costs $8000 alone (tack on another ~$2000-$5000 for studio lenses)

/me wants to work as a H!P photographer

I have seen a 'black keyboard' version of that also, with EDGE included, and there is a version with 16GB flash memory instead of a HD :)

But I think a 5" screen is to small a step up for me, I have a HPx4700 with 4" already, I am going for the UMPC's now...

as long as i'm in school, i'm not paying for electricity consumption! XD well i am technically but it's all flat-rate, included in the tuition. and when i graduate, i'll just rent a coloc :D

nice choice with the asus R2H btw, it's the only UMPC that caught my eye. but atm, i'm never more than 1hr without my ipaq, never more than 24hr without my laptop, and never more than 1wk without my desktop. so a UMPC wouldn't really have a niche. but, if i get back into photography (ie: if i can fund it) i may get a UMPC, so i can have a portable tether.

hey, when you pay $60k for one of those you can at least afford a few extra grand added to your electricity bill. Better yet, you could probably buy your own wind turbine and solar panels. So ecomoni will love you.
 
Actually there is a really good alternative to the Sunfire (although it's not available yet) but it only uses 80W at peak. Check this out

I was going to post the same thing @_@; It is extremely cute. There is a pink PSP coming too, but I'm not really all interested in that.

I'd like to have this Vaio with 5 different lids but really bad thing is that it doesn't come with Core 2 duo processor.
