What recession? Before you might start thinking that we have officially lost our minds, let us share this bit of news – a blingy Dell laptop that costs a huge $5K. Frankly, there is no shortage of high-end computer machines that wear the over-the-top bling and get sold at a high price. But we are talking about five grants here that too in the American dollar. Here are the details. Apparently, one Bergdorf Goodman wanted to get one of the new Dell Adamo XPS for himself. But then it had to be different from the masses. So they called up Swarovski and did some decorating of their own.
As a result, the lid of the Adamo 13 is festooned with a Swarovski crystal studded sterling snake, which frankly could have had a better finishing for isn’t it a flat and smooth laptop top that we always look for!
The credit for this rather horrendous show of luxury goes to creative director Douglas Little of D.L.& Co. Apparently for the likes of them, the four-digit priced Dell Adamo 13 wasn’t premium enough for their uber-rich clientele.
