    Fun story at Engadget today we've already seen the MacBook Air bathed in gold and crystals but it seems that people just can't leave well enough alone with the folks at Computer Choppers no strangers...

    More...

    Who would bother with that, regardless of how much money they have? I just don't understand. You would have to wear white gloves or something.

    Doubt any PC would be a chick magnet, specially if it's a Mac.

    Note: I hate Macbooks. Half the performance for double the price, just to have it say Mac on it?
    I say nay!

    More like a thief magnet ;)

    Can you imagine leaving that thing and calling lost and found.


    Steve: "Excuse me but have you seen my 5000 dollar laptop by any chance ?"

    Guy: "how does it look?"

    Steve: "oh it's covered in 24-karat gold"

    Guy: "bip, bip, bip, bip"

    Steve: "hallo, hallo are you still there !"

    Steve: "oh my heart, it's broken"

    First we had a Gold\Diamond studded Ipod Nano w\ matching ear buds and now this? Anyone else seeing a pattern here? At least the money garnered from the Ipod & ear buds went to charity. This however....is just a complete waste.
