Tulip E-Go Diamond – US$350,000 laptopby Dhiram Shah
The Tulip E-Go Diamond notebook is inlaid with solid palladium white gold plates in which thousands (80 carats) of top-quality, brilliant cut diamonds have been pave set with surgical precision. The magnificent end result also incorporates a unique square cut ruby set in both Tulip logos and costs 283,000 Euros (US$355,000). Tulip developed the E-Go lifestyle notebook to meet what it sees as a growing tendency towards design and personalization. Initially E-Go will be launched in Europe as of October 2005, shortly followed by North America and Asia in January 2006.
