Something Different: an $11 Million Laptop Case

What would make an otherwise nondescript laptop case cost $11 million? Shavings from a unicorn’s horn? Karl Lagerfeld’s DNA swabbed from a bottle of Diet Coke? Lady Gaga tweets lovingly sung into the fabric by the pop diva herself? The answer: diamonds, more than 8,800 of them, each with its own certificate of origin, claims Dutch company CoverBee, whose other cases cost no more than $50. Naturally the case also comes trimmed in rare black Siberian sable. You’ll know it’s arrived when an armored vehicle normally employed to transport gold bars pulls up in front of your house, the one you can’t be seen in half the year to avoid paying city taxes and remain in the 1%, so schedule wisely.
