Let's hope you have a few dozen credit cards primed and waiting, because at 2PM EDT today, HP is letting loose its limited run of 518 HP Blackbird 002
Dedication Edition PCs. You can score one of the sexy / powerful / spendy machines for $5,500. That price gets you an overclocked Intel Core Exreme QX6850 processor, dual NVIDIA GeForce 8800 Ultras, 2GB of RAM, a 160GB 10,000rpm HDD and a 500GB 7200rpm drive, liquid cooling for the CPU and GPUs, a Voodoo Razer mouse and keyboard, and decent bundle of games to get you started. If this doesn't quite sound like your style, you can always hold out until october, when configurable machines will become available, ranging from $2,500 to $7,100 in price.
