Gold-Plated iPad 2

Apple's latest tablet makes an excellent gift. In the interest of luxury, however, you may want to choose a tablet with a little more shine--such as this gold-plated iPad 2 from Crystal Rocked. You can buy a 32GB version with Wi-Fi and 3G for about $2150, or a 64GB version with Wi-Fi and 3G for $2275. If you think $2275 is still a little cheap for an iPad 2, check out Stuart Hughes's $8,000,000 Gold History Edition--it sports 53 diamonds (12.5 carats), and only two exist in the world.
