Read about it on gizmodo i think. Eh...
Looks cool but a stupid investment for several reasons:
1. It's not solid gold and therefore adds little or nothing to the resale value.
2. Gold plating will wear off, possibly reducing resale value vs. a steel edge that stays one color.
3. 24-karat gold plating is softer than 14 or 18-karat plating, and is least resistant to scratches... and you cannot buff out scratched gold plating, as it will rub the plating right off the edge.
If they did a solid gold rim option, anything below 18-karat would be of little value as 14-karat (58%) and 10-karat (<50%) don't contain enough pure gold to be considered precious metals. However, 18-karat gold is expensive in the US and a solid rim of that size would probably add at least $2000 to the price.
