    I wonder how many people would love to steal that if they saw it in public

    Why would anyone steal it? It's not like they could resell it.

    Yes I realize that. I guess some members have only recently found out about it though. I only recently found out about them.

    :rolleyes: Oh brother...as if Apple notebooks weren't considered pretentious enough already. ;)

    I remember seeing something awhile back where a scientist had his aluminum PowerBook gold-plated to prevent corrosion...something about the environment that he had to work in could be damaging to laptops?? :confused: Don't remember. But anyway, it actually looks ugly gold-plated IMHO. :cool:

    i think that's pretty ugly... why would you spend over 3k on a gold computer that doesn't add any functionality...

    I think they look really nice actually. Maybe not the gold, it looks nice, and if I had the money I might do it but I think if I were going to purchase one, it would most likely be an anodized one.
