This luxurious iPad 2 has a T-Rex bone embedded in its body; costs $8 million
Which gadget has a golden, diamond-encrusted body, a frame made out of Ammolite mixed with pieces of a dinosaur bone and costs over $8 million to own? Why, it is the luxurious iPad 2 Gold History Edition, which none of us will ever get to see in person, let alone review.

This insanely expensive and overly blingy iPad 2 has been designed by Stuart Hughes, who has brought more than a few gold- and diamond-covered gadgets to the world. As the case is with most of his creations, the boring aluminum body of the device has been ditched and replaced with one made out of 24-carat gold covered with diamonds of various shapes and sizes. The tablet's front frame has been crafted out of Ammolite, which is pretty much the oldest rock that Mother Nature has to offer, and if that is not enough to justify the “History” in “History Edition”, fractions of a 65-million years old thigh bone that once belonged to a T-Rex dinosaur have been embedded into the Ammolite frame.

Now, having all that bling covering this luxurious iPad 2 does take its toll on the tablet's weight, yet carrying an 8-pound slate around you is absolutely fine if you want to make the people around you aware of your social status. Only two of these tablets will be made so if you find its design to your liking, feel free to bring out your Centurion and grab one before they are gone.

I agree. Eight million dollars could be used to feed the children throughout the world.

In all honesty, I find it pretty ugly. Anybody else feeling the same way?

Disgusting. It infuriates me how something as precious as a T-Rex bone, not to mention diamond and gold, would be wasted on a F*CKING iPad!!!!! >:( the people who made this, and anyone who buys it, should be shot.

I am wondering which bone of which T-rex specimen did they crush out and use in this extravagant creation. And ammolite is a precious archaeological rock. Not only a waste of money but also a waste of natural history.

How about the value of this product goes to my pockets. At least I could put 8 million dollars into better use like charity funds, food banks, churches, housing for the poor, etc.

Let's see.....I could donate 8 million to starving children or pimp out my ipad.


Seriously, this is what is wrong with Rich people. They throw away their money on stupid crap just because they can while people work their asses off for nothing just to survive.

And on a side note, I'm sure that T-Rex knew one day part of his dead body would be used on An Ipad. *SMH* I find that very disrespectful.

I agree it's a waste. Doesn't keep you from feeding your fat face on mcdonalds. You could give that food to a homeless person. Fact of the matter is if someone spends 8 million on anb ipad it is probably an oil sheik or dare I say BILL GATES ha ha. It is their money.b let them do with it what they will. Nobody tells b you what to spend your latte money on do they? At least the aren't holding onto their money hoarding it. They are puting it back out into circulation keeping the people of apple employed and ABLE TO FEED THEIR STARVING CHILDREN.
