Moneual for a million: Jewelry PC demands dramatic pricetag


We weren't aware that the "world's first million dollar personal computer" was quite such an envious title to achieve, but Moneual labs seems to think it's something to be proud of. Titled the Jewelry PC, Moneual's unit will be in one of two styles by jewelry designer Lee Charles Buckingham, and will include real diamonds and other precious jewels on top of what looks to be an otherwise boring home theater PC. The J PC runs a Core 2 Duo or Athlon 64 FX, Windows Vista Ultimate, 8GB of DRAM, NVIDIA GeForce 8800GTX 768MB of RAM, 2TB of 7,200 SATA storage, Blu-ray or HD DVD drive and plenty more trimmings like a 7-inch built-in screen, TV tuner and 7.1-channel sound. No word on HDTV tuners, which could be a bit of a deal breaker for anyone with the kind of cash to burn to buy a million dollar media PC. Moneual also has a few "low end" models running for $30k each in an 100 PC limited run: the Baroque 18k gold PC, the Renaissance white and yellow gold PC, and the Rococo, with white and yellow gold -- all of 'em naturally encrusted jewels galore. We can't even drop our usual "well, someone will buy it" line for this one, thanks to the outlandish prices and unimpressive devices, but we fear the worst.
