Not pretending @kilesa4568
posted up the appropriate links I followed those, read what they said, then looked at what the McLaren was supposed to run when using 4k ultras, which only some of their units use. You kept on with 4k x 3 = 12k resolution on a single graphics card at 60fps, when the site no where says this. I asked you early on to show me that and you kept on using the above, as if to state I had no idea. When in fact it's pretty simple it's not something all that difficult to grasp. I asked for where this was indicated because it seemed like conjecture on your part.
How did you assess the price of the TV from the entire sum of parts listed? Also it's funny how you move the goal post each time I post something or completely distort what I'm saying. Clearly the analogy I made was for your hang up on building the PC and final price. Yet now you use the TV to try and change perspective, interesting.
Yes, and I'm allowed to combat that with it shouldn't be all that surprising because many groups do this.
No I don't, first off before we continue, stop with the thought that their is some inferred tension here. I do this all the time on the forum, and have done it for six years now. I have no animosity toward or for you, I simply disagreed with your ideals, and pursued an intelligent conversation on the matter. If you see that as some spite or anger then discontinue. But don't assume I think you're crazy, angry or anything else. It's just a conversation.
As for what you actually said. I found it strange you would make this leap because there was nothing suggesting it, especially as I have said the site continually says otherwise.
I was talking GPU because you originally had an issue with it. I brought up the on-board because at first I didn't see a specific lvl designation, then I checked again. Which is where again I saw the 1080 designation given and them not advertising anything but that, no 1444 or 4k. Which led me to think it probably isn't set up to run 4k and they'll probably sell something down the road.
We're not talking about the shop, we're talking about the builder, Vesaro. What you're trying to get into has to deal with other things that perhaps a specialized build to order shop wouldn't, such as wholesale cost that help deal with SRP/RRP.
So how do you judge what the labor cost is compared to that of the sum of parts cost before it's built?
I haven't singled out your comment, go back and you'll see I responded to others, you're the only one to carry on. How are we saying the same thing, you think it's a rip off and is wrong. I think it's fine, even if I agree it's a rip off.
Yes it does because that consumerism choice is subjective there isn't an inherent measure that tells a person product A is a rip off compared to product B. Some people my think this product is worth the price simply because of it's quality in finish, the McLaren distinction, or combination. If you don't care about any of that, then you buy from someone else that meets your needs at a more reasonable price. You make that judgement in a free market by assessing like goods, however what you've already discovered is this price is probably more in line because it's an official McLaren signature item and a specialty others can't guarantee.
What is the stage five compared to in the Vesaro line up?
I understand your shock to an extent, what I don't understand is the vehement highway robbery you seem to feel as if it surprising it exists. When you can simply just ignore it and move on to something you believe is realistically worth your purchase and service.
EDIT: Also try to edit your posts so you don't double post in the future.
