Default Diamond and Gold Covered Computers?

I got an e-mail today from [H] reader “EC” that has to be seen to be believed. Two small form factor Core 2 Duo systems one with a gold case the other has diamonds. And, if I am reading this correctly, these things are priced at $750k and $560k. The Blu-ray – HD DVD drive is a nice touch but you’d think I could get some more RAM and a better video card for that kinda cash.

How sad. First, they look UGLY. Second, why spend half-3/4 of a mil on something that won't run next years games for the little golden boy of his tycoon fathers?

Plain stupid. I'd rather have golden toilet than this piece of cheap-looking crap.

Anyone buying a case like that is clearly trying to make up for being inadequate in some other department ;P

yeah, i like the look. I would gladly pay 150 for that case, without the gold and stuff, and pack it full of my own goodies
