Taking a break from the usual plethora of Linux benchmarks, delivering the news about Dirndl, and providing other Linux hardware reviews and news, to end out the week is a look at the Titan from Sumo Lounge. Weighing over 35 kilograms, this is one of the heaviest products that we have reviewed at Phoronix.
$379 for a beanbag?! When I was in college those things cost about ten bucks at Target. I know the dollar has gone in the toilet since then, but still, $379 is a simply ridiculous sum of money for a beanbag. You can get a much nicer, more comfortable, and probably even heavier easy chair/recliner for that kind of money.
Personally, I was disappointed with the article title. I was expecting some monstrosity of a server, multi-headed display, or a massive computer case to be reviewed. The last computer case I got was just about the same shipping size and weight of the beanbag, but cost about a hundred bucks less. I was hoping to see it be reviewed since it is a neat piece of equipment, but nope, we get a review of a beanbag chair. And it's a pretty skimpy review with no benchmarks. How about some benchmarks of number of times the chair gets plopped into before the beans start popping out and blowing around the room?
