Platinum, gold-plated MacBook Pro on sale

If you think that the MacBook Pro makes for an expensive buy in itself, how about a 24-carat gold-plated version? A firm called Computer Choppers has just put the finishing touches on a gold-plated MacBook with an Apple logo encrusted with multi-colour diamonds, which you can claim to own for just $30,000.

The firm also offers to cover your Apple product in white, rose and yellow gold, as well as copper, black and silver chrome, reports the Huffington Post.

While it looks like the company specialises in its customisation of Apple products, it mentions in its Services section that will also work "on most any computer or electronic item." Some of the other platings offered are in silver, old English gold, champagne gold, almond gold, honey gold, rose copper, bronze, and pewter.

Platinum, gold-plated MacBook Pro on sale

A firm called Computer Choppers has just put the finishing touches on a gold-plated MacBook with an Apple logo encrusted with multi-colour diamonds.

This is not the first time we've seen Apple products sporting bling. Stuart Hughes' version of the iPad 2 is the snazzier sibling of the regular iPad 2, which you might want to own if you have £5,000,000 to spare.

For the rest of us, the iPad 2 Gold History Edition is as exquisite as it could possibly get. The Apple logo that rests at the back of the iPad 2 is set with 12.5 carats of flawless diamonds, 53 of them encrusted to form the signatory Apple.

This has been set on a back made of 24K gold, weighing a total of 2Kg. Its front frame has a touch of history too; it has been made out of the oldest existing rock, Ammolite.

This 75 million-year-old rock, sourced from Canada, isn't the only historical influence on the iPad 2. Apparently, on the front frame of this device, actual pieces of a Tyrannosaurus Rex's thigh bone have been used, which according to Hughes, were splintered and shaved into the rock, which has then been given a jewel finish.

Adding some bling is a single-cut, 8.5 carat flawless diamond beautifully set in the centre, surrounded by 12 other flawless diamonds.
