MacBook Air Supreme Ice Edition: £139,995

By Peter Chubb - Mar 31, 2010

As I sit here and write the post on my MacBook Air, I begin to think that my small, thin Apple laptop is missing something – that’s it, 25.5 cts of ‘I’F’ Flawless diamonds. Ok seriously, if there was ever a laptop that needed a redesign, the MacBook Air is not it.

Stuart Hughes in Liverpool, UK does not take your average laptop and give it his treatment, only the best will do, and the MacBook is just that. This model is called the MacBook Air Supreme Ice Edition and comes with a hefty price tag, £139,995 ($209,000)

So what is different about this pimped out MacBook Air? The first is this 25.5 cts of ‘I’F’ Flawless diamonds that we mentioned above, next we have those 53 individually set sparkling gems that make up part of the Platinum Apple logo on the lid.

The front of the MacBook is now made from Platinum and not Aluminum any more – so does weigh much more than before. Brining together platinum & diamonds has certainly made the Apple MacBook Air that more special – not certain if Stuart Hughes could have pulled this off with one of the basic Dell laptops.

Update: are reporting that Goldstriker & Stuart Hughes are shopping around digitally altered images of their polished 24kt Gold Macbook Air, which includes the photo on this page.
