You know what they say... If you have to ask, you can't afford it :-)

Depending on size of system, storage and peripherals, and various discounts
(nobody pays list price), you're in the 1-4M range. List price of smallest
configuration is somewhere around $500k.

But, as was stated already, this beast pales in comparison to the countless
desktops chugging away out there. It sure is easier to manage than the
equivalent number of desktops though!

What a great weekend this has been. Lets keep it up and at least sustain
this rate. Kudos to CMU - great job fellas.
