For the Rich and Clueless: $32,000 for a Core 2 Quad Mini PC!
Gaiser might be on the wrong market, trying to appeal to geeks with the big bucks with its $32,000 gold and diamond plated mini PC. Surely the first-class aesthetics are appealing, but how would you explain paying that much money for a quad-core PC and integrated graphics to tech-heads?
In other words, rich people may admire the craftsmanship (a shell of three kinds of Gold sprinkled with some Swarovski crystals) of the so-named “design09 | TRICOLOR Gold”. But most geeks aren’t exactly eye candy people. Pretty things only appeal to them, but only if significant substance backs up the style. Expecting them to pay good money for what’s basically eye candy (only) is a pointless exercise.
Am I mistaken? Gaiser High End PC is of course in business, and they offer several models. That makes me think they’re enjoying a certain degree of success, selling enough to pay the bills at least, and much more if they sell at a huge profit. Does that mean a significant number of the rich and clueless fall victim to these PCs’ gold luster? In any case, I’d only pay $32,000 if a PC was finished with luxury materials, and literally had the best consumer-level hardware inside. An Intel Core i7 975XE, two GTX 295s anyone, and a 6TB hard disk RAID array anyone?
