A fun thing I ran into when exploring Stable Diffusion is that there is a company specializing in various form factors for delivering compute to people doing AI/ML/etc research. One of many, many offerings:

The subtext of this is that I probably should do many things prior to splurging on a really expensive workstation that I am presently unable to use effectively, but that the notion of that sort of splurge does push a lot of buttons that have long laid dormant.
