Default Terabyte of RAM?

I was browsing through laptops, and came across this one, priced at roughly $19,000. They claim to have 1TB of their own customised RAM, or so I understand. Can anyone verify this for me? Thanks.

Looks incredibly shady to me, I would not remotely consider it. 1TB of ram doesn't make any sense... -nobody- needs that. Big massive powerful servers don't have 1/20th of that.

I think they mean 1TB of HDD space... optical though as opposed to a standard hard drive.

Ahh, thanks, I was thinking something similar, the thing that confused me was that after it said 1TB of ram it then said it had 2TB in HDD space, which seemed VERY hard to believe, considering the low price and the fact that it was a notebook.

Yes for sure. For that price I'd rather a nice desktop and a car to carry it with, lol.

Haha, yeah. You could get a Chevy Cobalt SS and still have about $6,000 to buy a desktop =p
