To me a workstation is really just a 'work' station, for me that means my laptop. While she ain't super fast I do most of my work there and it's BSD powered.


I do agree though if your going to pay high prices for some kind of dedicated system it may as well be made worth while. If I had to fork over a few grand for any thing someone might call a workstation in the traditional sense. It probably would be needed for working harder at processing then me at whatever is being done!


Didn't a major part of the work station business go under from the falling prices and increasing performance of crappy consumer PCs?
