Money no object? Then how about a 24-carat gold-plated MacBook Pro for your next laptop computer? US Mac dealer Powermax has begun offering just that. Powermax gold MacBook Pro The machine is Apple's 15.4in model with a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo processor, which would customarily set you back $2499 - less than half what Powermax is …
.... could it have any other name?!? :-)
You CAN gold plate a turd after-all!
That must scratch SOOO easily. Gold is very soft and mallable.
Not to mention being very heavy, and picking up fingerprints faster than an Al-Qaeda operative trying to infiltrate the House of Commons.
Not to mention that gold doesn't actually look very nice, by today's fashions. The only people who like to flash it in considerable quantities are the chav/bling crowd, who as far as I'm aware, aren't massive Apple Mac devotees. Perhaps they need a subtle gothic cross motif.
If they made a platinum version, that would be a different matter...
Apple consumers = magpies
Should sell well, Apple consumers are usually impressed by shiny things.
Now you see, when all the other Dragons chucked out the gold plating guy, the one who gave him the money evidently knew something they didn't ;)
I think I'll buy two...
...one for weekdays, and a second just for weekends.
Why not just get a large sign mounted on your back that says 'MUG ME' - it would be a lot cheaper!
For people with more money than taste
I can see a few of these winging their way out to some rather sandy locations...
That's so awful it's actually rather beautiful.
Reminds me of an Imperial Dalek
Am I the only one that thinks that looks like the blinged out Imperial Daleks?
Can't decide which gold Dalek it reminds me of more, but defenitly a Dalek:
"Not to mention ...picking up fingerprints faster than ...."
C.mon, this is the company that created the iBook, with a snow white keyboard that just screams GRIME and the Imac keyboard with a translucent bottom that screams out TOAST CRUMB COLLECTOR!
I've concluded that Mac users are also obsessive hand washers.
So retiring execs do get tired of gold pocket watches...
So have opted for gold plated MacBook Pro's instead.
Now, if I remember correctly, gold is an excellent conductor of heat (among other things).
Maybe this model can finally put an end to the MBP's notorious burn-a-hole-in-your-lap issues?
