Would You Like A Million Dollar Laptop? (Yes, 1,000,000!)

If your diamond encrusted PSP and blinged out Escalade aren't enough, sitting there in your Armani suit eating caviar and drinking champagne, then perhaps you should try out a one million dollar laptop from luxury designer Luvaglio. That's cheap at twice the price! What do you get at one million dollars? A PS4! (I kid in love)

UK-based bespoke luxury goods creator Luvaglio has created the first million dollar laptop. That’s what the first of their luxury laptops will sell for. Full details of the laptop have not been released at this point, but it is known that it incorporates a 17" widescreen LED lit screen with a specially designed anti-reflective glare coating for clear and brighter image, 128GB of Solid State Disk space and a slot loading Blue-Ray drive. There is an integrated screen cleaning device and a very rare coloured diamond piece of jewellery that doubles up as the power button when placed into the laptop and also acts as security identification.

For a million smackers, I'd want a bit more then an integrated screen cleaing device....

    “Many claim to produce luxury goods but we believe that the true element of luxury is having something that says "YOU", that money can't buy.
    actually, i'm pretty sure this luxury good can be bought

    -A battery with enough power to last for days on end
    -Tri-boots Linux/Windows/OS-X

    I remember a couple of years ago some guy at TTB bought a five thousand pound laptop on eBay. It was, at the time, the most amazingest laptop ever, and he wanted everyone to be jealous.

    I now have porn[i/] that wouldn't run on that laptop, and I still have five thousand pounds.

    For a moment I thought you meant like weight, being the dumb American I am.

    I was about to say, a 5,000lb laptop must come with a fucking truck built in or something.

    Well, we live in a world where there are people who are constantly buying new houses, rare luxury automobiles, yachts, etc. But these poor souls, it seems like no matter how many of these beach houses and Ferraris they buy, they still make money faster than they can spend it.

    Thank God someone like Luvaglio has stepped up, to ease their burden.

    meh. For 1 mil. I would expect it to be top of the line. Jewel encrusted stuff seems stupid to me. Besides, Synthetic diamonds look just as good on such a setup.


    A 1,000,000 $ USD laptop is like throwing money away. Some people are foolish enough to waste that much $$$

    Technology perfected by Doctor Emmett Brown. It uses a plutonium powersource to literally manipulate time and space. There are some spacial distortion requirements - you need to be able to get the unit up to 88 miles per hour, but at that point you can bend spacetime as you will.
