Golden iPad weighs in at £130,000

by Darren Allan

We recently had a bit of a moan about the UK price of the iPad, which came in at a touch more than we were expecting.

However, the £429 to £699 pricing of the Apple gadget is nothing compared to the version Stuart Hughes has produced.

Yes, this is the same chap who put together the gold and diamond studded iPhone in November of last year, which cost £2 million.

And then in December, he was responsible for the Nintendo Wii clad in 2.5Kg of gold, which cost £300,000.

Now this Goldfinger of gadgets has given the Midas touch to Apple’s iPad, although it isn’t quite as expensive as the last two efforts.

The gold iPad weighs 2.1Kg and comes with 53 diamonds embedded. The cost – some £130,000.

Only three of the golden Wii console were produced, and only ten of these iPads will be made.

Although more “budget” minded punters can get a simple gold plated iPad for around the £2,000 mark. Of course, you’re getting the 3G 64GB version for the money.

What’s next for Mr Hughes? The next-gen iPhone, we’d imagine.
