Computer machine

This isn't a problem so much as simply a question.

A few of my friends are nerdgasming over this computer machine. Since I'm stuck a few centuries after the fall of the Roman Empire in terms of technological prowess, I don't understand why. Can anyone here explain it?

It has more RAM than most people have hard drive space?

It's a server. Those stats are largely meaningless as the average user understands them.

I was just going to say, I've heard complaints from friends about the quad core; I can only imagine the frustration someone would have with 8 processors. If current technology is written for dual cores and doesn't utilize quad properly, it's sure as hell not going to make use of an eighter very well.

2 TB of RAM is nice to dream about when you have a computer that is slow, though.

Me, I just want to take a solid state for a spin. Shiiiiny.... @_@

What Nehalem Xeon motherboard even -supports- two terabytes of RAM? Elliquiy's Nehalem server is near the top of the line and only supports 192 gigs.

Unless that's a virtualized system with a giant SSD or twenty being used as swap.
