Diamond Encrusted MacBook Air - The $39,750 MacBook Air

The golden iPod isn't luxurious enough for you? Check out this MacBook Air. Called "Golden Age", it's got a coating of 24k gold beneath 12,000 Swarovski crystals. Each crystal was applied by hand (of course), and only 20 Golden Age Airs have been made.

Those of you addicted to over priced blingy gadgets will love this one. Selfridges – a high end department store in London- is selling 20 limited edition gold and diamond encrusted MacBook Airs for £20,000 ($40,000) each.

The flashy gadgets are made my Bling My Thing, a site that pimps out even the most run of the mill gadget for an arm-and-a-leg.

True luxury addicts need look no further than Bling My Thing’s new “Golden Age” creation. Unveiled at CeBIT 2008, “Golden Age” is a Macbook Air decked in 12,000 Swarovski crystals. The crystals are even more shiny than usual thanks to a coating of 24k gold applied under each crystal. The translucence of the crystals allows for true layered luxury. Each “Golden Age” takes a week to construct since each and every crystal is hand-applied, so only 20 of these beauties exist, one of which was for sale at Selfridges, Oxford Street, on March 18th. That is if you could have muster up the £20,000 ($39,750) price tag for the mega-bling.
