Not all small products come in affordable packages. Take these 10 laptops, for example. These are the most expensive laptops in the world, which can easily make your $2,000 high-end PC look like a total bargain.
10. Alienware 18
A subsidiary of Dell, Alienware is one of the most recognizable brands when it comes to expensive high-end computers. Naturally, a list of the most expensive laptops in the world won’t be complete without a representative from the Florida-based company.
Launched a few years ago, the Alienware 18 is a total beast when it comes to hardware power, easily embarrassing most of the competition. When configured to the absolute maximum for gaming, the 18.4-inch laptop can easily inhale around $5,000 from your protesting wallet. But because of the bulky build, the Alienware 18 isn’t the most portable, which sort of defeats the purpose of having a laptop. – Buy It
9. Rock Xtreme SL8
The Rock Xtreme SL8 lives up to its “extreme” moniker. It’s a high-end laptop specifically tailored for extremely fast and smooth performances when playing hardware-demanding modern games. At maximum configuration, the laptop can cost up to around $5,500, a hefty price for a 17-inch machine.
Unlike most of the products here, the Rock Xtreme SL8 lacks a fancy or eye-catching design. It looks just like a regular gaming laptop, with the manufacturer having placed more focus on actually delivering a high-powered performance instead of looking good. Those looking for a more luxurious laptop probably won’t be impressed by all the hardware power the Rock Xtreme SL8 comes with.
8. Stealth MacBook Pro
When it comes to the most expensive products in the world, you can always count on an Apple product to be in the conversation. The Stealth MacBook Pro by Colorware is quite possibly the best-looking reskin of the popular Apple laptop ever created. Good luck trying to find one now, though – Colorware only produced 10 units of the Stealth MacBook Pro.
The $6,000 laptop features an all-black zero gloss finish with a matte display. The whole outfit is scratch-resistant, so you don’t have to hold back on stroking it in admiration every 30 seconds or so. Underneath, the Stealth MacBook Pro includes the standard hardware specs seen in the vanilla MacBook Pro. – Buy It
7. Origin EON18
Based in Florida, Origin is a relatively new computer manufacturer, founded in 2009 by former Alienware employees. The Origin EON18 was one of the first products the company rolled out. It’s a highly customizable laptop made specifically for gaming. The starting price checks in at around $2,000, but when configured to beastly specifications, the laptop can cost a little over $6,000.
That price range is in line with Origin’s current lineup of products. In fact, both the EON17-X and EON17-SLX can easily be substituted for the EON18 here. Both products are also highly customizable, giving customers a lot of options when putting together a more favorable setup.
6. Voodoo Envy H171
Featuring a flashy blood-red housing, the Voodoo Envy H171 is one of the most powerful laptops in the world. It’s created by Voodoo Computers, a former luxury computer maker now owned by Hewlett-Packard. Since the original manufacturer is no longer active, finding a brand-new Voodoo Envy H171 now seems like an impossible task.
Under the hood, the Voodoo Envy H171 boasts an Intel Core 2 Extreme X6800, a Dual NVIDIA GeForce Go 7950, three 200 GB hard drives, and a 17-inch display. It’s amazing how Voodoo was able to pack that much hardware power into a laptop. Even more amazing is the price tag, which starts at $5,000 and could go all the way past $8,000 depending on the configuration.
5. Ego for Bentley
Created by Dutch luxury goods maker Ego Lifestyle, the Ego for Bentley laptop is one fashionable-looking piece of technology. It resembles a handbag and comes in different colors. The laptop frame is made of white gold and the exterior is made of Bentley leather with crossover hand stitching, giving it a sleek look that undoubtedly screams “Bentley.”
Priced at $20,000 at launch, the Ego for Bentley laptop includes a 12-inch screen, a 64-bit processor, a 160 GB hard drive, a 2 GB RAM, and, hilariously, a Windows Vista Ultimate operating system. Not exactly the most mouth-watering laptop specs out there. For $20,000, you can already buy an extremely high-end laptop capable of running the latest games. But of course, it all comes down to style for the Ego for Bentley laptop.
4. MacBook Pro 24-Carat Gold
Next up in our list of the most expensive laptops in the world is the shiny and unquestionably expensive-looking MacBook Pro 24-Carat Gold. The MacBook Pro 24-Carat Gold by Computer Choppers – a US-based company specializing in customizing electronic products – launched with a $30,000 price tag. The entire laptop is made of solid gold, with the Apple logo at the back decorated with numerous diamonds.
Customers can also opt to have the MacBook Pro 24-Carat Gold in a different plating such as rose gold and platinum and have it decorated with engravings. The price varies depending on the level of customization. In regard to hardware specs, the MacBook Pro 24-Carat Gold is exactly the same as the vanilla model. Computer Choppers left everything intact except for the housing.
3. Tulip E-Go Diamond Notebook
Another product of Ego Lifestyle, the Tulip E-Go Diamond is one of the most fashionable luxury laptops in the world. The $355,000 laptop looks like a handbag, complete with a full-fledged handle to give it a very distinct appearance similar to the Ego for Bentley. It is made of palladium white gold plates, embedded with brilliant-cut diamonds totaling 80 carats.
Released in 2005, the Tulip E-Go Diamond includes several leather “skins” which can be used to change the outer layer, allowing you to match it with your style for the day. Performance-wise, the 12.1-inch laptop isn’t really the most impressive. Featuring an AMD Turion 64-bit processor, the Tulip E-Go Diamond includes a 1 GB RAM, a 100 GB hard drive, and an ATI Radeon Xpress 200 video card.
2. MacBook Air SUPREME
And you thought the MacBook Pro 24-Carat Gold was expensive. The MacBook Air SUPREME by Stuart Hughes is hands down the most expensive Apple laptop in the world. It comes in three variants: Platinum Edition, FIRE Edition, and ICE Edition.
The Platinum Edition has a housing entirely made of platinum and comes with a £319,995 price tag. The FIRE Edition is made of 24-carat solid gold with 53 flawless diamonds on the gold Apple logo and is priced at £219,995. The ICE Edition is the “cheaper” version of the Platinum Edition: Only the front of the housing is made of platinum – the other areas come in an aluminum finish. The platinum Apple logo also houses 53 flawless diamonds. The ICE Edition is priced at £139,995.
1. Luvaglio Laptop
Created by UK-based luxury goods manufacturer Luvaglio, the Luvaglio Laptop is the most expensive laptop in the world, blowing away the competition with its outrageous $1 million price tag. In terms of performance, the million-dollar laptop won’t scare away other gaming laptops. It includes a 17-inch display, a built-in Blu-ray drive, a 128 GB solid state drive, and an integrated screen-cleaning.
What makes the Luvaglio Laptop incredibly expensive is the bling it comes with. Customers can choose to decorate the laptop with precious stones, including a rare diamond which also doubles as a power button. The full specs and actual look of the laptop remain unknown as Luvaglio has yet to find someone willing enough to buy and show it off.
