Around this time of year, everyone rolls out gift guides - suggestions for what to buy for the special, computer-loving people in your life. But we think that such guides sorely underserve one crucial but oft-ignored demographic: the filthy, stinking rich.
To remedy this pattern of neglect, we’ve put together the ultimate gift guide for recipients for whom the word “budget” holds no meaning: Here are 10 pieces of PC paraphernalia with price tags that push the boundaries of rational expense. We’re not talking about cheesy solid-gold mice and diamond-encrusted cell phone cases that nobody actually buys, either. The products on our list are legitimately awesome (though not exactly great bargains).
Eizo Duravision FDH3601
Sure, it’s a tad ugly, and it costs more than a modestly appointed luxury car, but if you want to get in on the ground floor of the 4K revolution, the Eizo Duravision FDH3601 is the only such monitor currently on the market. If you elect to shell out the $30,000+ necessary to give one as a present, the lucky recipient will get a 4096-by-2160-resolution display in a 36-inch diagonal package.
