You should see the cost of the extended warranty!
Apple's pricing woes do not seem to have worried PC giant Dell, as the flinger of Windows – and occasionally Linux-powered silicon – appears to have unleashed another multimillion-pound laptop on the world. The company will cheerfully sell you a 17-inch mobile workstation in the form of its Precision 7720 for a gnat's whisker …
Since Hungarian Notation is widely adopted in programming I supposed Dell has taken things a step further and started pricing their products in Hungarian florints. Last time I looked one florint was worth 0.0036 of a US dollar which brings down the price of their laptop to a more credible -- but still seriously overpriced -- $25K or so.
Seriously, though, it appears that Quality Control is 'so yesterday', its more important to get stuff out there than test it since the users can always be relied upon to test stuff for you so maybe that's just the way things are (those systems will be running Windows 10 anyway so who knows what the punter's going to end up with?).
