Waste of money and an inferior product....
When it comes to multi-GPU setups you will find that Nvidia's 3-Way SLI is still the faster product and with 8800 GTX's on the market for £200.00-£230.00 it's now possible to build a system with Quad core, 780i SLI, 3 x 8800 gtx and 4-8gb RAM + 24" HDCP LCD for less than 1,500.
Benchmark wise 3-way GTX is faster than 4 x 3870's or 2 x 3870 x2 (and 3-Way 8800 Ultra is king.) in ACTUAL GAMES (CRYSIS, HL2:EP2 etc) although ATI have had the edge in synthetic benchmarks for a while now (ie 3DMARK '06) but they're ultimately meaningless in the real world.
I can understand that you might pay this amount of money out if you lack the expertise to build a system with this spec (the only hazard being watercooling.) but surely the majority of hardware junkies and gamers will just build their own systems and save themselves thousands for the sake of missing out on a tacky case.
For those who prefer holding governments to ransom in their lunch hour...
...when are they going to release the Wireless USB Orbital 1,000,000,000,000,000 watt death laser with sub-atomic space zoom and six port USB 2.0 hub? (Drivers only available for the Linux crowd.)
Say that demand after me....
"one biiiiillion dollllllaaaaarssss!"
...Those of you who believe that a large number of consumers will shun mobile phone manufacturers because of none standard charger sockets are suffering from that sad condition of having faith in the majority! Those of us who have an avid interest and understanding of the issue may well do so but the average consumer will lap up whatever shiny new designer phone is thrown at them irrespective of whether it has an industry standard charger/data/headphone socket, they're too ignorant to care less.

Do you think there will be a discount as rumour has it one of Mickey's arms was detatched in the struggle.
Mr Phreaky... if that's really your name... Did God tell you to say that?
