FOR THE 1%

LUVAGLIO LAPTOP COMPUTER | $1 MILLION |LUVAGLIO.COM|Billed as the first million-dollar laptop, this piece of apocryphal extravagance from a London-based luxury retailer has provoked skepticism from some in the tech world, since no one has actually seen one. But if you have the means, you can order one and hope it lives up to the hype. Its makers tout its 17-inch LED screen, 128 GB of disk space, a Blu-ray player, and an "integrated screen-cleaning" capability. "I didn't want us to simply re-house a laptop into a diamond-studded casing, or diamond encrust the entire thing simply to make it expensive," the company's CEO, Rohan Sinclair Luvaglio, told gizmag.com, touting "a very rare colored-diamond piece of jewelry that doubles up as the power button when placed into the laptop and also acts as security identification." In addition, the computer can be finished in the "owner's choice of precious metals, leathers, and real woods."
