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).
Zana Design Apophis
If you’re looking for a 64GB USB 3.0 drive, you can probably find one for less than $2000. But if you’re looking for a 64GB USB 3.0 drive constructed from 200-year-old African Black Wood, 18-carat gold and—oh, yeah—a piece of a freakin' meteorite, the Zana Design Apophis makes complete sense. (If you want to pinch pennies, you can swap out the gold for silver to lower the price to $1130.)
