Exclusive, worlds first 24ct Gold Apple iPad Air probably never coming to a store near you!
The iPad Air is a highly sought-after device, and if you thought the £269 starting price was a little steep, things just got a whole lot more expensive with the 24ct Gold Apple iPad Air. London-based Gold and Co. has released a limited edition set of 250 24ct Gold Apple iPad Air, so if your like Hardlives.com and have to have one what are you waiting for?!
A few weeks following the release of any new iOS device, Gold and Co. comes through with the solid gold version. It did the same with the iPhone 5 back in September, and with that priced at £8500 or thereabouts, don’t expect the larger iPad Air to come cheap, either.
Intriguingly, Gold and Co. did the same thing with the third-generation iPad back in April after it’s March release, and as those who bought the iPad 3 curse the fact that it only enjoyed a seven month shelf life, those that got theirs laden in 24 karats must be even more rueful.
It’s an expensive toy, and although it’s way out of the comfortable price range of most, 24ct Gold Apple iPad Air certainly nice to look at. The iPad Air – for all its criticism – is rather easy on the eye, and as well as being pretty to look at, it’s also a joy to behold. But even the good work of the Apple design team cannot compete with the beauty of the solid gold edition, and if you have a few thousand dollars lying around, you may want to consider owning one of a very limited edition set.
If like many, you’ve been a little apprehensive regarding the iPad Air, you may want to wait for the Retina display edition we’re expecting to see next year – particularly if you’re going to step things up and go for the gold version. Then again, if you have enough wad to blow on a gold iPad – a device which, in itself, is far from a necessity – then I suppose you’re not going to be worrying about buying a new tablet whenever Apple fancies releasing one!
