You can get an 18K gold HP Spectre laptop with diamonds, if you have the cash

The just announced HP Spectre laptop with Windows 10 will also have two different limited edition versions, and they will likely be sold for a ton of money when they are put up for auction later this year to raise money for charity.

HP Spectre

HP says (opens in new tab):

Dutch-born, London-based designer Tord Boontje created the HP Spectre by Tord Boontje that exhibits delicate, intricate and dreamlike patterns across the laptop. The ornate graphic pattern integrates cherry blossoms, graceful florals, a peacock and an exquisite butterfly. The 18K gold plated accents provide rich contrast with the patterns that gently intertwine with embedded Swarovski crystals set in a floral pattern against a deep Midnight Blue.Jess Hannah, a Los Angeles-based jewelry designer of eponymous line J. Hannah, created the HP Spectre by J. Hannah with opulent 18K gold. The notebook top and rear is completely plated in 18K gold with a highly polished finish. HP's logo is encrusted with diamonds, each carefully placed by a diamond setter. Even the keyboard deck is plated in 18K gold to match the top cover and the power button is covered with diamonds for sparkling brilliance. The all over gold accented with a hint of sparkling diamonds displays Hannah's minimalistic design philosophy.

If your bank account can handle it, a limited number of both versions of the HP Spectre will be auctioned off during the Cannes Film Festival in May, with proceeds going to the Nelson Mandela Foundation.

  • *starts digging between the sofa seats*
  • Do you have a sofa safe with your inheritance hidden in there? Windows Central for Windows 10-Microsoft Lumia 640
  • Estimated to sell at how much?
  • Over $9000. Windows Central for Windows 10-Microsoft Lumia 640
  • I could never afford this... One of the 99%... I'm the bottom half of this class
  • Very nice design!! The pockets aren't running that deep. If I had the luxury of purchasing this laptop I would only use it in certain circumstance like bringing out the good china during those special company engagements. Nice art work.... What other phone would you be using beside the L640? I'm just sayin.... *One Windows*
  • Similar to Dell's original Adamo laptop design, but in a much thinner package:
  • Yes and without the bling art work.... What other phone would you be using beside the L640? I'm just sayin.... *One Windows*
  • The HP Spectre has a nice design. This is too much bling-bling and looks cheap/fake.
  • When can I pre-order this?? Okay... Just kidding :)
  • I'll wait for a sale.
  • Normally I don't pay attention to these things because Personally I don't see the point in buying these things, including gold phones and other hardware because you can never update it, software yes, but most likely hardware not, also, I am very impressed that they are giving the money to Charity, at least that's a good thing that can be taken away from luxury items as these!!!!
  • Tooo much bling for my eyes :P. You wouldn't get that far after you open this up in a cafe lol.
  • Blood diamond money going to a Mandela charity?
  • *breaking my piggy bank* But still need to shell out more XD
  • Wow, that might be one of the ugliest laptops I've ever seen. I don't care for gold as it is, but the accents around the keyboard make it absurdly unattractive to me. You have to have a LOT of extra cash and some pretty strange tastes (or a desperate need for attention from others) to look at this thing with any seriousness, in my opinion.
  • Looks horrible in my opinion
  • Ok
  • It sounds like a few people here could use a small loan of a million dollars.
