Limited-Edition MacBook Costs $207,900

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 66 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.

    Hi, I'm Mac.
    And I'm a PC.
    Mac, why do you cost so frigging much?
    You wouldn't understand PC.
    ...I don't understand, that's why I'm asking.
    Well you see, PC, I am made of a precious metal and have lots of these sparkling gemstones all over the place.
    ...But none of that does anything at all. You're asking people to pay money for a useless addition to your product.
    Well of course I am. See, I told you you wouldn't understand.

    At least diamonds and platinum won't be obsolete in two years.

    Lol, that wont even have enough precious metals and diamonds in it to cover half the price.

    You could just buy a few gold bars, and sit your laptop on top of them. I think that makes more of a statement than this does.

    If i saw someone with that I'd assume it was just a tacky fake and that they had no class.

    Gamers don't want diamonds on their babies! We want sexy hardware that can bring the most out of our games. We can make a godly PC for less than 1/10* of that macbook price. whoops :D

    This is like the 3rd story in 2 weeks of hardware coated in gems and exotic metals...that person could have purchased the normal version and donated the rest to a charity of any kind and it would have not been such a blatent waste of $$.

    The thing will still be outdated in a couple years and anyone that finds your purchase awesome is just as much an idiot as the person that bought it for 200k

    Damn, this is a steal compared to that guy's HDTVs. 1 million pounds (go figure, you take a 55" screen then coat it in 19kgs of gold.)

    [That's $1.49M US, and 42lbs of gold.]

    Unlike any Mac, which is obsolete 3 years before it hits store shelves.
