[Walter Soyka] "For the system you describe to meet your price point, you'd have to lose a thousand or two"

Dropping a $2500 base system to $2000 is not half the price. I think a bit of nip tuck and case redesign can do it.

[Walter Soyka] "You've eliminated a lot of the features (massive memory capacity,"

I didn't mention that at all. That wouldn't change.

[Walter Soyka] "You just cannot get the same performance at half the price in a case half the size by eliminating the HDD and two PCIe slots."

I think there's more to be saved in a case redesign that's not quantifiable in limiting HDD and PCIe internal expansion.

[Walter Soyka] "No, I would expect the price to be lower, because all the component prices are lower today than they were in 2008."

I suspect manufacturing process has something to do with it as well although I can't prove it.
