    That rumored iPhoto pro app (called Photoshop killer by some):

    - Aperture - post-production tool for photographers
    - Built for pro photographers, provides end-to-end RAW workflow
    - Feature called Stacks allows photos to be grouped together based on the time between shutter clicks
    - Full screen workspace, can span multi-image displays
    - Multi-image viewer to check images side-by-side, up to 10 at a time
    - Standard tools like red-eye reduction; cropping etc. Non-destructive workflow and versioning capabilities

    You can put two gfx cards into it and buy 4 (yes, four) 30" screens, that should get that max price up a bit.

    Xserve? A whole rack full of them? I'm sure that would get you over 100'000.

    First of all, please stop winking at me. ( )
    Secondly, you said 4 screens. 1 gfx card per 2 screens, no? So you'd need 2 gfx cards. Where do you plan on putting the 2nd card if no SLI support in the mobo?
