I can not. Damn that's expensive...
I do what I can.

If a man, standing in the forest says something, and his wife isn't there to correct him, is he still wrong??

128GB on one simm - server memory, all about density. A database server with 16 slots can have 2 TB or RAM - meaning a rather large database can be loaded complete in RAM. That stuff has buyers. Just like the 16TB SSDs from Samsung find more buyers than they can serve, so there's none for sale on the open market and those who buy them by then 1000s pay $15k a piece or more without flinching. Storage speed and density is worth it. Just the power savings on one data center alone could pay for that stuff over time. Customers like Amazon buy them by the container load.

Don't eat food off the sidewalk, no matter how good it looks.

That is pretty ridiculous.
I know I won't be buying one any time soon.  :)
