Would you pay $700,000 for an Apple iPad mini case?

total weight of 5 carats. The Natural Sapphire Company will happily put your monogram underneath the Apple in sapphires although we're not sure if that is extra. We guess if you have to ask how much it costs to add your initials to the case, it really isn't the one for you. In other words, you won't see this case on the rack at Best Buy. At $329 for each iPad mini, you could buy 2127 tablets instead of one case and have enough extra tablets on hand in case your "mini" gets damaged without a case to protect it.
The Natural Sapphire Company knows that the economy isn't going gangbusters and unless you're a famous movie star, athlete or CEO, paying $700,000 for this case is certainly a hardship. So what they are willing to do is to let you pay it off in three "easy" installments of $233,333.33. Do us a favor, after you take home the case, send us a photo with your new iPad mini firmly ensconced in its $700,000 home.

Only a stupid product of a stupid company can have an accessory so stupidly and insanely priced! Its stupid products like these with loyal fans who the company thinks will pay for crap like this that entice companies in the first place to waste resources on an accessory like this when all that money could have been used for education, social services, feeding the poor or any other socio-economic purpose...what a waste!

Every time I come to this site it's always something about Apple, and it's never good.
