one macbook, in gold, please

So Calli (theslyestfox) showed me this site ages ago, and at the time I was all excited about it, but had no money. But now I am considering buying a macbook of some kind, maybe a macbook pro, and the site came to mind again.

It is a site which customised various lovely items, like iPods, macbooks, xboxes.... etc.

You can buy one in GOLD, yo. Gold.

It is kind of pricey though, and the warranty is sort of fucked if you buy through these guys. I think they have their own warranties, but the Apple one is gone.

wow.

i am not sure if its a wise choice to purchase something like that from another country. especialy with the loss of apple warranty. i wonder if they repair it themselves, or if only they can send it to apple. that would mean double waiting time for you. (oh and add the shipping from uk to us).

anyway .. i love the idea too.
i build my own computercase and painted it with glossy orange and black color. it was fun and looks awesome even though its empty now.

There's rumoured to be new ones out next week as well. Mac Books.

Well, its a novel idea, but not one that's worth much in my opinion. Plus, it makes your machine an even bigger target for theft.

I got excited about getting one of their iPod Nanos a while ago, but it turned out to be nearly twice as expensive after shipping and everything, so I went off that idea pretty quick (and bought a £10 ghetto MP3 player instead).

They do look gorgeous, though...

Screw that. That's like going and buying a truffle with a golden wrapper. Macbooks are awesome, but they're not that awesome.

How regal. Just keep your nail polish away from the keyboard and you should be alright.

Bri,
You're an Artist, for crying out loud! I'm Sure you could create a much finer one then they can! Hell, have you checked into covering a regular Macbook with a gold foil plastic like they do adverts on busses & cars? Something to think about. . .

Cool. Buy me one too while you're at it.

yeah since you started to work again and are rich I want mine in red

You have a college degree. You know better than to waste money voiding a warranty.

Customize the exterior yourself, but put something into retirement savings too. ;)

so i am trying to think of how all my favorite youtubers who are on the most subscribed list got so popular. and im pretty sure one day i just came across your videos, but i cant really remember. i know you have been featured... but didn't you have a lot of subscribers before that? i think you might be one of the few most subscribed people who havent been featured.

Always keep the Warranty. Extend it if you can 'cause the moment it's not in- it's broken! Happy Delurking Day Bryony!
