Final photos of Midas-touched MacBook

Finished product is a sight to behold.

Computer Choppers

A couple of weeks ago we mentioned an outfit called Computer Choppers that will adorn your MacBook in 24k gold and, for an additional fee, a diamond-studded Apple logo. The company's site had only a few teaser shots at the time, but now they've done a full fashion shoot with a final product.

As gawdy as the whole idea may sound, you've got to view the finished work--inside and out--to make a final judgment. As we thought with the 18k gold Shuffle and the 24k iPod , there's something visually stunning about Midas-touched Apple products, perhaps because their minimalist designs allow treatments that are over the top on other wares. But see for yourself.
