There is perhaps no other more appropriate item for this blog, the Gilded Life, than an actual 24k gold gilded MacBook Pro accented with a diamond encrusted Apple logo!
Whether you are a middle eastern oil magnate, a Chinese industrial tycoon, Silicon Valley start-up millionaire, or a Wall Street financier, if you are looking for a little extra bling in your life, this exceptional work of functional jewelry may be perfect for you. By working with 24 karat gold, gilding it over the entire MacBook Pro case, then covering the pure gold with a clear layer of protective coating (otherwise it would scratch and become disfigured easily due to the softness of gold), these works of art – which begin at $29,000 in the United States – are fabricated for a handful of exceptional clients around the world.
The Gold MacBooks Are Created by Computer Choppers and Come in Limited Edition Runs
Created by a firm called Computer Choppers, these limited edition gold MacBooks are released in tightly controlled limited editions of 3 per Apple MacBook size each year (that is, three 13″ Gold MacBooks, three 15″ gold Macbooks, and three 17″ gold MacBooks).
Highlights – What Comes with Each 24k Gold MacBook
According to the firm that produces these gold Macs, along with each purchase, here is what you get:
- 24kt Gold Plating (Type III 99.9% purity) with polyurethane clear coat.
- A 5ctw VS White Diamond Logo Micro-Pave Set in 18kt White or Yellow Gold.
- Personalized Engraving into the metal and plated in 24kt Gold with a protective clear coat (Glass Engraving into the display cover or trackpad is also available).

Of course, the Apple MacBooks are standard in that they run the current operating system, Snow Leopard, and feature all the great benefits of owning a Mac system.
