Getting an iPad 2 is already hard enough with stock levels wiped out across the country and online customers having to wait 4-5 weeks to get their orders. But if this isn’t exclusive enough for you, how about an $8 million Apple tablet?
The iPad 2 Gold History Edition from designer Stuart Hughes takes excess to an all new level. This exclusive iPad 2 creation has 12.5 carats of flawless diamonds encrusted in the gold Apple logo. The iPad 2 body alone uses over 70 ounces of 24 carat gold, which has a street value of more than $100,000.
If diamonds and gold aren’t over the top enough for you, don’t worry. Hughes has redone the front of the iPad 2 with even more exotic materials to make sure your iPad 2 turns heads. The designer uses Ammolite, a very rare gemstone similar to Opal, for the iPad 2′s front frame. The Canadian sourced Ammolite is further enhanced by inserting splintered pieces of a 65 million year old T-Rex dinosaur’s thigh bone to create a unique front bezel.
To finish off his tour de force, Hughes has upgraded the iPad 2′s Home Button. The new button uses a single 8.5 carat flawless diamond inlaid in a platinum setting surrounded with 12 smaller flawless diamonds.
If you’re keeping track, the material list includes: 2 ounces of T-REX bone, 26.5 ounces of Ammolite stone, 70 ounces of solid 24 carat Gold, 16.5 carat diamonds and a 8.5 carat single diamond.
So if you like over the top things and have more money than brains, you can grab the $8 million iPad 2 Gold History Edition from Stuart Hughes’ website. But don’t wait too long, Hughes is only making two of these unique iPads.
