Talk about taking a big bite out of your bank account… coming in at 8 million dollars, meet the world’s most expensive iPad, a.k.a. “The iPad2 Gold History Edition”. Made from 2,000 grams of 24 karat gold and boasting the famous Apple logo encrusted with 53 flawless diamonds, the pricey iPad offered by UK luxury designer Stuart Hughes, easily earns the title, ‘The World’s Most Expensive iPad’. The iPad’s $8 million price tag includes a power button crafted from an 8.5 ct flawless diamond set in platinum which is then accented with 12 flawless diamonds for good measure. Impressive… yes, but the lead story… not yet.
Aside from the gold and the bling, this ‘golden apple’ also features a frame made of ammolite, (the world’s oldest rock), and dinosaur bones. Yes… dinosaur bones. Specifically, pieces of thigh bone from a Tyrannosaurus Rex. According to the Stuart Hughes website, 57 grams of T-Rex are inlaid into the ammolite frame.
Don’t want to lay down that many bones? (sorry, couldn’t resist…), you can pocket some hefty change by purchasing the next version down – the “iPad Supreme Fire Edition”. Made of 24kt gold, this version (minus the diamonds and dinosaurs) will cost you about $176,000.
