As carefully planned by me, Sammie and Miata are exchanging blows again. In the comment section of a very old blogpost … no idea why they are posting there now. Hey, I’m innocent, didn’t pitch them against each other. Just reporting on the shit going down, do I? But I still have an open competition with Sammie. Wanted to prove to her that I can build/buy a machine for 800 €/$ that is better for SL than her Apple iMac. So tonight I thought I have alook at Amazon’s consumer paradise and try to assemble a worthy machine.
Oooopsy! No assembly necessary as Amazon even sells ready-made computers in that price range … incl. keyboard and mouse!
Everybody knows Amazon has neither the biggestest product range nor the bestest retail prices but their shit is available pretty much all over the civilized world. That’s why I didn’t look at specialized local retailers. So I guess I could get a similar or better machine for less money if I researched carefully.
Ok, according to Sammie, one has to purchase a monitor that goes with the computing box. She’s partly right, that spoiled iMac brat. 🙂
So let’s see:
Box + keyboard + mouse = 720 US$
Monitor = 90 US$
Makes a total of 810 Ameridollers. Cool price if you ask me. Sorry for not meeeting the 800 bucks treshold, Sammie but I guess one look at the local thrift store would’ve scored much cheaper results. Anyhoo, how much did your iMac cost? Mhm, ya, so expensive? Bummer. And allow me to say my showy Cyberpower rig (with very adolescent chic windowed box and red LED lighting) + a very modern IPS screen will blow your iMäck right outta the water!
And now let’s lean back and relax and wait for Miata’s very real project to materialize.
