Still, it’s always nice to fantasize and think about the “what ifs”. You never know, one of us may just strike it lucky on a slot game.
Below is a list 5 insanely priced tech items that only the extremely wealthy could ever afford.

It’s not about what this watch can do but rather about how and what it’s made of. The Harry Winston Opus 12 has 607 parts and 80 jewels. It’s also considered to be an investment piece because only 120 of these coveted items were ever made. Included in the build is an 18K white gold case and buckle as well as a black alligator leather strap. It’s the kind of item you lock away in a safe.
Cost: $ 1 000 000
The Luvaglio Laptop doesn’t particularly stand out with any special features you wouldn’t already find in a standard laptop today. So why is the Luvaglio laptop so expensive? The price tag comes from the design and detailing of the appearance of this million dollar machine. The power switch is encrusted with a rare diamond, and this accounts for some of the price tag on this medium-performing laptop. So, why would anyone in their right mind be tempted to buy a medium performance machine at such a hefty price? Well, the Luvaglio laptop can be considered as an investment piece. Firstly, the brand itself screams of exclusivity and secondly there’s the bling factor. So if you’re ever on the market for some exclusivity, the Luvaglio laptop may just be the answer.
Cost: $ 5 000 000
Yes, it’s an Apple product, but that still doesn’t account for a $5 million price tag. But this iPad is most definitely not like the others. This iPad 2 was designed by Stuart Hughes and is encrusted with 12.5 carats of diamonds. But that’s not the only thing that makes this tablet so exorbitantly expensive. The frame is also crafted from the one of the oldest rocks on earth (75-million-year-old ammolite). Still, there’s more to the price tag than shiny and ancient rocks. There are also the bones of a 65-million-year-old-T-Rex that can be found embedded in the ancient rock. So the name quite aptly reflects the $5 million dollar product.
