Oh guys, it is expensive, very expensive! But it looks great:

An original 64 GB iPad with WLAN + 3G and with a special feeling!
But to get it, you must hurry up and...don't forget to take the $19,999.00 with you ;-)

Do you think that the iPad is a pricy useless overrated device? If yes, then what do you think about the same useless overrated device becoming even more pricy while having the same features (the same software features at least)?

Mervis Diamonds Importers are a popular diamonds company based in USA. According to their website they “carry the largest selection of Tacori, Verragio, Martin Flyer, Ritani, and Claude Thibaudeau diamond jewelry.” Apparently their diamonds collection got so large they started to run out of uses for it – so they decided to make a diamond iPad.

Are you wondering what exactly a diamond iPad means? This is what the website states:

“This gorgeous diamond studded iPad features 11.43 carats of diamonds, hand-set in a micro-pave styling. The diamonds are graded G/H in color and VS2/SI1 in clarity. The iPad features 64 GB of memory and is 3G enabled.

Price tag: $19,999.

Very limited quantities available. Orders will be available June 1..
Please contact Jon Mervis jmervis (at) mervisdiamond.com with questions and orders.”


A 64GB 3G-equipped diamond-less iPad can be ordered via Apple for US$829. So whoever buys the diamond iPad will be paying $19,170 more for eye-candy.

I am clueless as to who in their right mind will order this diamond iPad. If you have any clue, kindly help me out and use the comments to let me know.

But, wait a minute...what about the ambient sensor?
May it be burried under so many diamonds forever?

earth, for now.
Your title says $19.999 - which it should be $19,000. By using a decimal instead of a coma, people may think you mean $19.99, instead of $19,999.00

Just sayin'

To my knowledge some countries use periods where we use commas, but I agree with you.

19,999.00 is correct!

Sorry, you both are right, indeed!

But in Germany we use the point and comma on an other way:

19,99 Euro (nearly 20 Euro)
19 999,00 Euro (nearly 20 thousand Euro)

And it is sometimes not that easy to make it correct, if not working in international finance world.

But my "failure" has an special advantage: Every user, who will read this and after reading may think: "WOW, iPad for only 19 Dollars", will see, that he needs over 19,980.00 Dollars more ;-)

But no! No gold! Not even gold plating!

This was actually announced about three weeks ago, around the time of the first ship date announcement. There just haven't been any threads lately. And it's still ugly :)
