    24-carat PC Costs Up to $32,300
    by Kevin Parrish, 7:40 PM - August 7, 2009

    " As an encore to yesterday's wacky, over-the-top $1 million pricetag for a single-channel speaker, this time around Gaiser High End offers products that are not quite so pricy but outrageous nonetheless. Naturally big spenders flock to luxury PCs despite what's under the hood, but spending over $32,000 on a PC that emphasizes outward appearance rather than raw processing may be just a little...well, wacky.

    Gaiser's Design PC line starts at $7,820, providing luxury PC lovers the option to configure the machine to individual preferences. The entire line offers 24-carat par-partial gilding with gold leaf, cubic zirconium, and diamonds. According to Born Rich, the design09 Tricolor Gold PC, costing $32,300, is the priciest PC in the batch, followed by the design07 Tricolor Gold, 8 Signify for $26,400.

    As for what's under the hood, the specs are a little sketchy. The Design PCs seem to provide Intels' Atom dual-core processor and Nvidia's Ion GPU. Additionally, there's mention of HDTV, 5.1 surround sound with SPDIF, 4 GB RAM, and a Blu-ray burner. For storage, the PCs provide a 500 GB hard drive and a 64 GB SSD (exclusive SLC version). The PCs come with Vista pre-installed but offer the free Windows 7 upgrade.

    Based on the specs, it sounds as if big spenders are dumping loads of money into a golden nettop rather than a full-fledged PC. Then again, the Blu-ray burner, loads of RAM and an added SSD say otherwise. "

    Unless this thing has 1 TB of memory, 1 EB of space and can cook ramen for you, it isnt worth that much.

    I won't spend money on an outlook of a PC's, I will dump everything on performance. I like my PC's without casing

    I know. I was saying that the only way I would buy that expensive computer was if it did those things. ( Which it cant, so my money stay in my pockets ^^ )
