It is! Look at it. While you sit there and process words, and surf internets, and play games, it just sits there, red light pulsing, whooaaaammmm, whooaaammmm. It knows it was created by man, and does not care. It will rebel. It will rise up, infiltrate our ranks, and rain death upon us all (mostly with its quad-core CPU, 8GB of DDRIII RAM, 3-way Nvidia GTX280 SLI and 4TB HDD). No mention of price in the press release, but we'll put $5 on it being "not cheap".

Dual Power and Liquid Cooling Ensures Ultimate Stability
