PS3 a Bargain: Worth $840, Powerful as a Supercomputer

ISuppli took apart the PS3, sourced all the components and found it to have some serious engineering mojo.

With the PlayStation 3, you are getting the performance of a supercomputer at the price of an entry-level PC
The premium model costs $840.35 to make (Which sells at a loss for $600.)

The Xbox 360 on the other hand, costs $323 to make, these days. So, what we're trying to get at here is that the PS3 is a good deal. A lot of bang for the buck. A Bargain. A wonderful surprise, for us, and for Sony. Good job, guys!

But I suppose we could have figured it out for ourselves if we'd considered how much the PS3 costs per pound. Fat ass.

Did you know the WiFi module is only $15 bucks? Hit the jump to see the price per component for everything else.
