Gold MacBook Pro in works
Apple's MacBook Pro is receiving royal treatment with a gold-plated cover encrusted with diamonds. The Computer Choppers Team has offered a preview of its forthcoming gold and diamonds MacBook Pro. The casing is plated in 24kt gold gold to replace Apple's own notebook enclosure, complete with cutouts for ports and power connectivity. The classy notebook body also features a custom logo that allows glowing light to shine through the diamonds set into the back of the lid. Computer Choppers allows customers to customize the logo on each case to nearly any degree, with any combination of precious metals from gold to platinum and valuable stones varying from diamonds to sapphires. The company cites turn around time at 2-3 weeks, and requires that customers phone for a pricing estimate.
