I too wonder why this priced so high. I been following ixSystem for a long while, before they were called that. I have huge respect for Matt Olander and I even considered buying one of there servers before I ended up getting my current Workstation.

I've bought Workstation for years. This seems nothing more than a PC to me. My Workstation contains Dual AMD Opteron Processor can support upto 32GB or RAM. Has Dual SCSI u320, Dual SATA2 and IDE. It can hold 12 hard drives and has 6 external 5.25" drive bays for CDs, DVDs or what have you. It also has redundant power supplies so given that is what I expect to see in a Workstation, I'm disapointed by this.
