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…….
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).
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.
