Don't let Swarovski mess up your Valentine

Ego's "Love Edition" laptop should have skipped the crystals.


It would be interesting to know how well Ego's Valentine laptops do during the rest of the year. At $13,000 apiece we can't imagine them selling out even on Feb. 14, much less in May or September.

But whatever their prospects, they just made them worse in our estimation by adding the dreaded Swarovski to the team. Last year's "Love Edition" may not have been for everyone, but there was something clean and understated--as understated as a heart computer can be, anyway--about its simple leather design and tastefully muted shades of red and pink. The crystals, however, cheapen everything except price.

It could always be worse, of course. You could have bought the $350,000 version instead and changed your mind after losing the receipt.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
