Luxury goods maker Stuart Hughes has introduced its new solid gold iPad “Supreme Edition.” This modified 64GB iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G features a rear plate and screen surround made from a solid piece of 22ct gold, weighing over 4.6 lbs. In addition, the device’s Apple logo is encrusted with a total of total of 53 Flawless diamonds comprising a total weight of 25.5 crts. Limited to just ten units worldwide, Stuart Hughes’ solid gold iPad “Supreme Edition” is available now and sells for £129,995, or roughly $190,000.

Editor’s Advisory: Though Stuart Hughes’ offerings are of only the most modest interest to our readers, we need to strongly warn you against signing up for any email newsletters or similar offerings from this company; iLounge has had trouble for literally years attempting to opt-out of this company’s mailings, and now receives multiple copies of the same emails over and over again, despite repeated requests for removal. Beware.

Good luck trying to get any wi-fi or 3G reception on your blingy new iPad with both antennas at the top and behind the Apple logo covered.

I’m sure Nicolas Cage will think it’s a good idea.

If Mr. Hughes has a store, there should be someone stationed outside to smack anyone emerging with a purchase.

If you think about it, with the ever increasing price of gold, these will be amongst the few iPads in the world that will be worth more then when purchased.
