I looked at Lenovo, and wow $5790 for 128Gigs, 4 Tb storage, Nvidia RTX and i9 chip. It's the NVidia chip ($1800), the ram ($1400) and SSD ($750) estimated by me.

This level of performance is in high demand, and the higher price keeps them in stock, where if it was cheaper, they would be sold out and on back order. NVidia sold out of chips this quarter, and they are hard to get now. Companies are complaining that they can't get their chips from NVidia, because NVidia shifted their production to the big AI chip, H-100 when TSMC was slow. Since the value of NVidia stock is so high now, I would imagine anything with NVidia technology inside is going to be very expensive.

The $6K is hard to justify, but the amount of computing power within such a small package like this is much higher now compared to 5 years ago. What you can do with this much power if you can do it, justifies the price today.
