iPad2 Gold History Edition

Unique, or almost, among the growing global inventory of extreme luxury gadgets, is the iPad 2 Gold History Edition. With a bezel constructed from Ammonite – a stone that is over 75 million years old and sourced from Canada – inset with shavings of dinosaur bones that are a meager 65 millions of years of age and then finished off with ultimate jewel, a single-cut 8.5 carat diamond inlaid in its own platinum surround with 12 outer flawless diamonds.

Two of the kilos that make up the 3 kilo iPad2 Gold History Edition are housed in the 24 carat solid gold rear section protecting the sophisticated technology housed within. Encrusted with 53 individually set 12.5 carats of flawless diamonds inset to the Apple logo, this literal heavyweight  packs a mighty kudos punch in first class lounges around the world.

Designed by Stuart Hughes who is no stranger to the extreme or ultra-luxury gadgets market having earlier created a number of gold-encrusted gadgets, the iPad2 Gold History Edition brings that bit more uber to the appeal. Created as a limited edition of only 2 , the giddy price tag of $8 million can be commanded for immediately placing the owner in what is likely the world’s most exclusive tech club. Reportedly, one already sold. There is no doubt the market does exist.

This tablet is accented with rare metals and precious gems. It's no wonder it's one of the most expensive gadgets out there! Not too expensive for a billionaire though.
