Random Expensive Things on Amazon UK

Tell Your Friends.....

Normally the idea behind these AlltheInterweb Shopper blog posts is to find various items that are a reasonable, pocket friendly price and made even more pocket friendly by being shown as having had a discount made available on it.

However for the past several days I have been toying with the idea of doing a blog post like this very one, having a look around Amazon UK to see what are some of the more expensive products available on Amazon.

So, here it is…….

Before the random idea for this post came along, I was exploring the idea of scraping together the money for a Workstation PC or a Server to tinker with and indulge my inner-geek.

So, that resulted in seeing the trusty old Intel Xeon processor range for use in a Workstation or Sever. These processors come in a range of options, with prices ranging from a fairly normal figure in low 3-figures, through to processors that cost the same as a car.

One such pricier processor I have randomly come across is the Intel Xeon Platinum 8180, which was apparently first made availabe in March 2018. The processor operates at 2.5GHz, uses 205-watts of electricity, and fits in an LGA-3647 motherboard slot.
It ships in 5 to 6 days, and as it is listed for sale at £12,836.92 customer reviews on it don’t exist.

A cheaper (but still expensive) pair of processors I have found that are more gaming PC oriented is the Intel i9-13900K for £554.95 and the Intel i9-12900KF at an even more reasonable £384.96 (but less cores).

The i9-12900KF has to “make do” with only 16-cores and 24 threads, giving 5.2GHz of processing power to play with. The i9-13900K meanwhile has 5.8GHz of processing power.

If you prefer to watch TV shows and Movies, and have a random wad of cash burning a hole in your pocket, then I may have just the thing…..

The Samsung QN90A is a MASSIVE television with a 98-inch screen with Neo QLED Technology for 4k HDR display. Normally it apparently costs £7999 but at time of writing it is lowered to a 21% discount price of £6,299 which still makes it way more expensive than the £1,679 it will currently cost you for the Samsung Q60B 4k HDR Television with 85-inch Screen from the same manufacturer and QLED technology.

For a more authentic cinema experience in your home, I have spotted the Epson EH-TW7100 4K Pro-UHD projector can be yours for £1,699 with 2x HDMI ports for you to plug-in either a Blu-Ray Player and/or an AppleTV 4k to play your favourite movies through it.

If you are looking for a premium smartphone that isn’t made by Apple such as the iPhone 14 Pro Max (£1,199), then how about a Sony Xperia 1V (Black) with a 6.5-inch 4k OLED screen for £1,299 and the same BRAVIA technology used in their televisions, and an Android 13 Operating System?
Personally at the moment I’d rather settle for an iPhone 12 Mini (Black) or a Samsung A20E, currently looking at the Alcatel 1B (2022) to keep me going while I scrape together the pennies.

More random posts like this may appear in future.
