The pimped-out Apple tablet is the work of UK-based designer Stuart Hughes, who specialises in ultra-expensive blinged-up gadgetry - he's previously been responsible for diamond-covered BlackBerries, and a gold-plated Nintendo Wii 'Supreme' that will set you back a cool £300,000.
The golden iPad is covered in 22 carat gold and 53 individual diamonds. The diamonds are set into the shape of the Apple logo on the back of the iPad, and the tablet's rear casing is made of solid gold, with more gold trim on the front.
Hughes describes the golden iPad described as 'outstanding even down to the precise polishing to reveal its most beautiful harmonious appearance', which suggests he's got a good line in Jobsian hyperbole.
For those of you planning on putting down £129,995 for the device, you don't need to worry about the specs. Naturally, it's the top of the line 64GB WiFi + 3G version - which would normally cost you £699. So, just a £129,296 mark-up, then.
On the plus side, delivery is free.
Hey, more useless things that only the obscenely rich with a need for overcompensation can buy! Oh no biggie, you only need to pay approximately SGD250,000 for the gold plating. Which you totally need, because you know, it's totally different from the one that's selling at poor people's Apple stores!
