PC World is featuring a picture article on “The World’s Most Extravagant Technology Products” and one in particular caught my eye. It’s the absurdly expensive Luvaglio laptop, with a price tag of over $1 million.
“Even if you say it like Dr. Evil, it doesn’t seem to make sense. Then again, what other laptop comes with 128GB of solid-state storage and a 17-inch backlit LED screen with its own integrated cleaner? Lesser notebooks aren’t encased in wood, leather, and precious metals. And they most certainly don’t come in a motorized box that opens itself, exposing the laptop to your waiting, impeccably manicured hands.
But here’s the clincher: Remember how Superman’s Fortress of Solitude was run by crystals? The Luvaglio laptop activates only when you insert the unique colored diamond that’s included, making the gem a power button, security device, and conversation starter all rolled into one. The expressions on your guests’ faces better be worth the price.”
