Introducing the Personal SuperComputer

Remember the Charlie Chaplin TV spots promoting IBM's first personal computer? You may not be old enough, but I am and I do.

Which is why I can't wait to see how NVIDIA plans to market their new Tesla.

How would I use a PC that is 250 times faster than what I use today? How fast can I really play Mah-Johng?

The entry level Viglen CL2000 PSC-2 Personal Supercomputer puts nearly 2 teraflops of computing muscle at your fingertips for a mere 3,999 pounds (what with the exchange rate that's less than 6,000 bucks)

I guess if they offer it in the same harvest orange color as my electron microscope with matching particle collider, I might be tempted.
