Damn Rich People (Got No Class): Gold-Plated MacBooks

gold-macbook-1.jpg

Because this is the sad, sad world we live in, Computer Choppers (think West Coast Choppers, then forget West Coast Choppers and think of a company that just coats electronics in expensive metals) is selling 24k gold-plated MacBooks. They're perfect for the person who wants their computer to make a statement. In this case, "please steal from me and don't even feel bad about it." The 11" MacBook Air model starts at $7,500 and the 13" regular MacBook at $8,500 -- although I don't even know why I'm posting price info because none of you are going to buy one. I guess that was just my journalistic integrity getting the best of me. "Dammit GW, you are not a journalist." Right? Plus have zero integrity.

Hit the jump for a bunch of closeups.

    Pretty much this is just a golden apple.

  • What I'm wondering is how this costs less than that gold plated vibrator?

  • BillGatesIsYourDaddy

    because you can actually get pleasurable use out of the vibrator.

  • The more fascinating thing is that there is actually a market for expensive novelty items like this one. Hopefully, the gold plating doesn't affect the computer's functions.

  • Alexander Probst

    Gold is heavy, completely negates teh purpose of a macbook air.

  • BillGatesIsYourDaddy

    It's gold plating...not solid gold

  • $18922249

    47% of Americans should be turned into cattle feed!

  • $18922249

    / sarcasm.

    Unless that is why everyone is all pissy.

  • UNCCRyan

    Id like to see 'that' take a .50 Cal.

  • Thaddeus Stevens

    What, no diamonds? Remove yourselves from my grand foyer and take this cheap trinket with you. My gold-plated butler will show you outside.

  • DapperNathaniel

    I have no problem with needlessly flaunting wealth, nor do I have a problem with Mac computers.
    I do, however, believe that coating any electronic in gold is pointless seeing as the technology will be obsolete within a few years, after which you have nothing but a very expensive fossil.

    Because my MacBook isn't heavy enough as it is.

    Oh its an Air.... oh well....
