Actually, I'm thinking of getting a supercomputer of my own. I read about supercomputers going mainstream, and found a computer that is "250 times faster than the average PC."
Actually, I'd make great use for a computer like that, such as recording in high fidelity. But one of the first things I would do with it is install BOINC on it.
I was surprised a supercomputer could be that small. I've always imagined them to be large bulky machines.

The Tesla supercomputers cost anywhere from $1,500 to over $60,000 depending on how powerful you want it to be. For my purposes, I wouldn't need a super- powerful computer.
