You mean the ugly-massive-integrated-LCD/CPU-eyesore-on-the-wall form 
factor?   And you want to pay *extra* for that?

One of the main attractions of LCD is the tiny footprint and 
elegant/slim profile.  So basically you are taking one of the best 
features of LCDs, tossing it out the window, and charging extra for it. 
  Meanwhile you can get a streamlined 30" LCD TV from Dell with the same 
specs for $2500 and have $3500 left over for a machine which you can 
toss inside a 1U/2U housing and fit right into your AV rack/media closet.
