That fact that you say things

That fact that you say things like you just did, is indicative of people trying as they may to justify their flawed positions.

First, in basic economics we understand that when a company makes a greater number of products, the price per item drops due to the ability for the company to buy the resources needed cheaper because of buying in bulk.

We also understand that when automation enters into the equation, the items cost less, due to lacking the need of human labor.

We also know that when a component is made to lower standards it is cheaper.

If we took these three manufacturing modifications and put them into the economy of the 1990's, but with the computer demand and concentration of today, do you really think that a mid-grade computer would cost $3000 like it did in the 1990's?

Of course it wouldn't have cost that much; no serious business person, engineer, or economist would suggest otherwise. However, that is exactly what you are suggesting; odd, huh?

Also, yes a person could buy a Falcon Northwest computer for about $6500, however, it is not going to last much longer than the current consumer grade computer; even though it is made with 'better' components. They are made with retail components which are the same as the OEM version just not as flashy like odd colored PC boards and such, but the components to make the boards are the same. The company which makes the three versions of the same mother boards are the same. Are there some differences between the Retail, OEM, and Business Class OEM motherboards, maybe, most-likely just the Bios; but the actually design isn't different, and neither are the components which make-up the motherboards.

If you are talking about business class computers, then you still have a problem, because business computers aren't necessarily going to do efficiently what a typical consumer uses his/her home computer for. Also, one of the reasons for the extended life of business computers is due to the fact that it is used for limited purposes. Most business computer users -in an office- have no ability to just install whatever software they want, and therefore the computers are less likely to be infected with viruses and trojans; which was why the email attacks were created.

Obviously, if someone bought a computer and only used it for one or two resource intensive programs; then it would obviously last quite a while. However, if one tried using a business class computer for home use, the computer wouldn't last very long.

If you think that the components found in a business computer are different than the components found in consumer computers, then you don't know what you are talking about. They are the same with different model numbers -but not even all of them have different model numbers. The only real special business class computing would be servers; but conventional workstations are not built to higher standards, it is the limited use which prolongs the lives of business workstations.

The different model number on the motherboards and such are usually for the ease of identifying which computer it is to be made into. It is much easier then to keep count on how many Business Class vs Consumer Class computers were assembled while they all used the same model numbers.
