The product is solid. This is a more than worthy upgrade. A simple training process and access to a wide variety of standard audio formats mean that you’ll be moving your spoken text to the printed page in a matter of minutes and with a minimum of hassle. free business advertising

 dunno of it would look good on paper but i'd use it to fold, in the background and while using it activly to do some 3d art and animaions iththe intent to use half the proceeds for a donation to charity

This would get a sub 30 second boot AND run crysis 2.

 The only reason to have this many cores is for a server. Would not do a wit of difference in a PC. The best idea would be to virtualize many computers to have inexpensive terminals for a school or library.

HD Video converson would be so fast.  Run Linux and XP and Win7 at the same time with no lag.  Bragging right amoungst my Hacker friends.  Just in general knowing I won't have to up grade anything but my Video Card for 10 years or untill the next chance to be #1 with out a reason to own that much equiptment...Lol!

Run every single distro of Linux in it's own Virtualbox and

end the great debate once and for all.

I would use it to accelerate Itunes. 48Cores is just plain cool. I would love to have a laptop with 48cores. Just to show off.

I don't suppose "Use it to help Intel design faster multi-core procs" would garner much of a vote.  Truthfully, I don't think there is anything I normally do that would benefit from 48 cores.  Although, it would be a blast to overclock that many--just for the street cred.

Play Crysis?

 

Seriously, that's a lot of power for even an enthusiast to have. I can't even begin to imagine what I would do with it....Well, except making smart comments while thinking about it.

Wow, you could get probably close to 200,000points/day for folding with that thing.  Folding@home is definitley were it would go for me, that and BOINC

But why Folding@home if you can do parallel Cuda a lot cheaper and faster.
