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).
Emperor 200 workstation
If someone you’re shopping for works in front of a computer all day in a setting that doesn’t win any ergonomic prizes, consider giving the gift of an Emperor 200 custom workstation. The Emperor 200 comes with a custom Core-i7 or Xeon-based PC with up to three 27-inch LED monitors, plus a completely actuated chair with built-in climate control and air filtration features. Nothing says "lair of a James Bond villain" like a command center graced with this high-tech furnishing.
