Golden Apple

For $30,000, you could be the proud owner of a 24-carat gold covered MacBook Pro with an Apple logo that features multi-color diamonds.

Computer Choppers, a company that personalizes high-tech gadgets, also offers the  chance to cover your favorite Apple product in white, rose and yellow gold, as well as copper, black and silver chrome.

The company’s founder, Alex Wiley, explained  to CNNMoney: ‘We’ll take an iMac, an  iPad, a tablet of some sort and we’ll strip it down to bare metal, we’ll engrave or  personalize it for a customer and then go ahead and plate that with 24-karat gold.’
