iPad’s UI? Priceless; An iPad with a Gold Back & 53 Diamonds ? $187,000

| News

A designer in England has put together a custom iPad designed for the person with more dollars than sense. For a mere one hundred and eighty seven thousand dollars, Stuart Hughes will turn a plain, drab, and let’s be frank, *ordinary* iPad into an iPad with a gold back and an Apple logo made out of diamonds.

Your new iPad’s back will be made of 22 carat gold, and it will have 53 diamonds in the Apple logo to let everyone know that you can’t put your new device down on most of the surfaces in your home.

If you’re interested in “The Solid Gold iPad SUPREME Edition,” you’d better hurry, however, as Mr. Hughes is limiting production to just 10 units.

Mr. Hughes also makes other designer versions of otherwise humdrum gadgets, including the iPhone 3GS SUPREME Rose ($2.79 million - hey, it’s got 97.5ct in diamonds and a platinum bezel!), a 55” diamond and gold TV ($1.47 million), and a diamond and gold PlayStation 3 ($289,321), and more.

For the person who has everything…except taste. Steve Jobs just threw up a little bit.

Whadda ya mean no taste?  This thing is AWESOME!

This is bling-on-BLING!

I hope they sell at least 1 or 2…

Just a pity Stuart Hughes’s site is full of Flash! (Still, the iPad is pretty flash, too, so I suppose?)

FWIW, Stuart Hughes is not the creator… he’s a fraud who is marketing the work of Computer Choppers as his own. So buy your diamond-encrusted gold iPad from the source!

And when the battery finally winds down, you can still send it back to Apple and get a new iPad for $99 - although considerably lighter in weight and bling.

Anybody know which iPad model this is?  Is there a 3G version for $187,130?

Bryan Chaffin

MY apologies, Scott: It’s a 64GB 3G model being offered.  You know, because that’s the real issue. smile
