Great tool for industrials... but for you?

So they take the MPC5200, originately designed for industrials, and port it to the desktop/server computer market.

As a personal user, when I want a cheap computer with little horsepower, I use the old ones that usually creep in the caves of my house or friend's houses.

When a company want a server they usually either need horse power, either buy very specific products.

I am curious of the benefit of such a strategy.
