Precisely- That's why there is such a huge price differential between the
similarly-specced units.

Flame capable systems are kind of hard to come by, and 'stone' is their
proprietary framestore harddrive setup.

The wacom and video boards are also part of the usual package.

Ah, so most of the price on *those* units is the Discreet Smoke/Flame
package then.
