MacBook Pro turns to golden Apple

24-carat upgrade

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Bling-centric ruffians and aspiring Del Boys will be pleased to know the Apple Macbook Pro is now available in 24-carat gold.

Check out this MBP from customisation specialist Computer Choppers.

Gold MacBook Pro

The case has been plated in 24ct gold with a clear coating to make it scratch proof, and even though the keyboard and trackpad are merely colour matched, you can still imagine DJ Tim Westwood saying "That's straight blazin' homey". Pfft.

Considering the price of gold seems to defy gravity, perhaps this will a rare example of a laptop that actually gets more valuable as time goes by.

The gold plated MacBook Pros are available in 13in, 15in and 17in models. Prices start at $5000 (£3100).

If you've got deep pockets, then check out the rest of Computer Choppers' range. It also offers pimped-out iMacs, iPhones and iPads. ®
