The $10,000 laptop … almost

I read in Bill Bumgarner’s blog that Dell has released a new model in its XPS line, the M2010. It’s not somethhing one could plausibly refer to as a laptop, due to its weight of 18.3lbs (8.3kg!) and 20“ screen.

Being a curious sort, and owning the M2010′s tiny cousin, the M1210 (the weight of which is a feathery 23% that of the M2010), I visited Dell’s web site to try to configure a system and see what it would cost.

Holy flaming battery packs; that is one expensive toy. I failed in my attempt to configure it to a price of $10,000, but I got astoundingly close, at $9,564.

That is simply obscene.

    Just using google, I was looking for a $10k laptop, reason being is in 04′ the local school board bought 5 laptops for $50k, $10k laptop. Knowing how corrupt the local government is and how much more money is important than books, I was just curious to see if one existed now with more modern tech. Interesting, thanks!

  2. Appreciation to my father who stated to me on the topic of this webpage,
    this web site is genuinely awesome.
