May 14 2010Money Can't Buy Class: Ridiculous Gold iPad

Have a spare $189,000 lying around? I'll f***ing kill you. Twice if you buy a solid gold iPad.

UK-based luxury gadget designer Stuart Hughes has come to the rescue with a solid gold, diamond-encrusted version of Apple's "magical" and "revolutionary" tablet.


The price is £129,995, or approximately $189,125, for a 3G iPad with 53 flawless diamonds on the Apple logo and a casing of solid 22ct gold. Even if you're willing to dish out this much money for a tablet, keep its weight in mind -- the device is 2.1kg, or approximately 4.4 pounds, due to all of that gold.

I couldn't be any more disgusted right now. And I'm not just saying that because the dog ripped a squirty one and I'm afraid there might be some solids on the couch, but will you look for me? I'm scared to.

herp derp first, bunch of nubs

id prefer an onix black backing

Epic FAIL Frostedblue, maybe next time.

This is stupid! "Oh look a golden iPad! It can't do shit, but at least it's expensive..."

you herp you derp?

not really, i really like the black backing they did for the iphone, scratch and finger print resistant

I WANNA KNOW WHERE THE GOLD AT? Anybody seen the leprechaun say yeah! YEAAAAAH.

And meanwhile people are dying because they can't get basic needs.

Isn't consumerism great? :D

you can buy it and tote it around, hey even act like your cool while your at it! thats not going to stop me from fucking mugging you!

@3, that wasn't so much an EPIC fail, as it was just a normal fail. If it was even that considering they were both posted at the same time. :). Learn new words please.

And this wouldn't be a bad idea if they weren't going to have an updated one in 6 months. Almost 200k for something that is about to be out of date is dummmb.

The muggers will just see this as a sign saying,
"I'm a rich prick with absolutely no sense, please beat me to death with my twatPad"

@9 Same time? The time stamp only shows hours and minutes. Understand that seconds, milliseconds, microseconds and nanoseconds still apply in the real world.

= comment correction FAIL!

i just bought three for the steve jobs golden bolo i'm making. not GOLDEN BOZO. that's totally different. duh.

It is looking gorgeous but only for millionaire because all people can not afford it. I have heard that people who have lots of money, they thinks to use this type of gold so that they can utilize their money.

Yeah I've got one of these; I use it as a toilet seat cover. Seriously, that's the best use I could put it to besides fixing that wobbly platinum table.
No camera, no bluetooth, big DRM issues, big corporate noose around your neck, what the hell else are you going to use it for? Ranks right up there with the Archos 7.
