I mean, the skulltrail is based on a workstation board. Everything about screams Workstation.

You do have a point. Skulltrail is a modified workstation board.

Ok, The point is valid. However, most people don't have the $10k that it would take to get one of those workstations. So for $3-4k, you can have something that is almost as powerful. If Money is no object, get the Dell Workstation with the warranty, but you CAN'T overclock a dell (nor do you want to for that matter) Skulltrail is the answer to this problem, and it will cost significantly less than a professional workstation would.
