    It's pretty bad, but they need to hire a better photographer, too. Why take the picture sitting on an old towel? Why not have something interesting reflected in the gold?

    Wasn't that a Kung Fu movie title?

    Personally, I think the owner or purchaser of that needs to donate it to the "impoverished thief fund."

    haha I think that's the microfiber cloth they used to polish it before shooting. Shooting in the hallway was the real genius of this shot though.

    I'd have to say, the coolest part is the multi-colored sapphires forming the old school Apple logo. Tacky? Yes, but quite imaginative!

    LOL, I was thinking the same thing. An old towel...the computer looks straight out of a bad hip-hop video.

    Isn't is supposed to look like it's on a beach or something? It does look rather poor, though.

    Scratch the case?

    I wonder if Invisible Shield will seal over those sapphires?:D

    This isn't truly for use is it?

    For the life of me, I couldn't imagine anyone really wanting to buy and use that.

    Fugly and too impractical for my tastes.
