Limited-Edition MacBook Costs $207,900

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 15 comments

It's a platinum MacBook with diamonds and gems.

A limited-edition MacBook by Liverpool-based Stuart Hughes is the now proud owner of the "world's most luxurious laptop" label, earning its prize by costing a meaty $207,900 USD. While this is a limited edition, the Air Supreme Ice Edition isn't sporting out-of-this world hardware that will drive your car and shop for groceries. What this portable rig sports is diamonds, gems, and platinum... everything a hardware enthusiast doesn't need.

"Encrusted with 25.5 cts of ‘I'F' Flawless diamonds, a magnificent total of 53 individually set sparkling gems dwell beautifully in their solid Platinum Apple logo," reads the company's description. The front housing is made from a single sheet of solid, highly-polished platinum. The remaining portions feature a polished aluminum finish.

A thorough investigation of the website revealed no actual hardware specs. Apparently in this case it's all about what the hood's appearance rather than what's under it. Still, if you have the funds, grab it quick, as there are only 10 units to be made.

But we think this is the worst way to spend $207,990 USD.

    What a waste of time. What happens when the laptop hardware is crap? Doubt it will be upgradable. 200K laptop with diamonds only an apple mac fan would get worked up about this.

    Why is Tom's continually reporting on these stupid gaudy technology items? The Gold Wii, the Gold PS3, the whatever 50" Plasma, the whatever iPhone, the list goes on and on. Do most tech people really care what stupid jewels they put in gadgets? What type of news is this?

    Yeah, please cut it with those stupid articles. The world is full of superfluous "designer" crap and the less everyone knows about it, the higher the chance they will stop producing that shit.

    As usuall, over hyped Apple Junk ... When they said the 80's fashionistas and music labels were tryign to make a comeback i did not realise this meant all the stupid yuppy culture would arrive with it...

    Completely Useless, wastefull piece of kit. (also another Apple hype news that to be honest i'm sick of hearing) ...

    You guys are just jealous. If you had spare $200k, you'd buy it rather than complain about hardware inside.

    Well, they've been dying of hunger for centuries. Which only proves they're not very clever folks who can't take care of themselves and fortunes spent on helping them are waste of money.
