I'm sure if you get enough time with the right software you'll realise how powerful these machines are.

for 1.9k they really are pretty mediocre in my opinion.

the 8gb sounds nice, and the dual quads. but who the hell uses 4 cores often enough, let alone 8 cores.

progress for the sake of progress really.

They're workstations. They aren't made for you.
