The first version of the MacBook Air was prohibitively expensive, particularly because it was quite underpowered. The 2012 edition is much more practical, and with the release of the 11″ version, is more affordable as well.
We know they’ve been pretty busy coating their gadgets with gold and other metals, but it’s been a while since we checked in with the guys from Computer Choppers. Turns out their latest endeavor is a doozie – it’s a 27-inch iMac plated in shiny gold.
So you’ve got a gold plated flash drive. It even looks like a real gold bar! La dee-frickin-da. That’ll look pathetic without an equally blinged out computer to stick it into. If you really want to burn money and be a true techie pimp, you’re going to have to get something like this golden MacBook Pro by Computer Choppers.
You’ve gotta hand it to the guys at Computer Choppers. They know how to coat gadgets in fancy metals. Today’s gold-plated electronic creation, the 24-karat Xbox 360.
Both the Xbox and its controller received the full golden dip, and would look great alongside your gold chains and gold grills.
Thinking about picking up a new iPod Shuffle 3G, but think the basic brushed aluminum and black case designs a little drab for your flashy style? Miss the wide color selection of earlier 3G Shuffles? Well now you can brighten up your 3G with a fresh coat of color – for a price.

The guys over at Computer Choppers (who previously gave us the gold-plated MacBook Pro and the digg casemod) have a new trick up their sleeves. Working their secret alchemy, they’ve managed to coat the matte aluminum surfaces of Apple’s latest 24-inch iMacs with shiny chrome and other metallic platings.
