You guys really don't understand the concept of a workstation vs a 'normal' or gaming computer do you? o.O

My friend was considering upgrading but I don't think he will now, $1850 is a LOT.

So workstations are not used for CAD then?

That makes no sense.

Exactly. That was my point. You're implying that workstations don't benefit from more graphical power, which makes no sense since tasks like rendering and CAD are often performed on workstation computers, and those will definitely benefit from more GPU power.

That still makes no sense.

You're fun to argue with... I don't have to think more than 3-4 seconds before finding something to reply to you.

Refine your arguments, because as it is now it's either nitpicking or plain non-sense.

edit: if I can be clearer, stating the obvious is not the way to go

Ah yes, this is a real workstation computer.

Less RAM, slower CPU, slower GPU, smaller HDD, and it costs more! But it does have a longer battery life and good construction.

But it's a workstation!

...yes it's a workstation.

Finally one that seems to understand under all his own sarcasm.
