MacBook Air Supreme Fire can be one’s for £220k

What do you buy the monarch who’s got everything? We put our heads together to try to think of a suitable gadget for the queen regnant of the Commonwealth realms on her birthday.Sadly, both the ‘84 today!’ badge and the bumper sticker reading ‘My other car’s a bulletproof sedan chair’ lacked the bling required by a woman whose monthly statement from Coutts has to be delivered to Buck House in a lorry.

So we decided to save up and buy her a new laptop. This one looks about right – it's the MacBook Air Supreme Fire. Claiming to be the most luxurious laptop in the world, the Queen’s new lappie takes three months to construct and costs £219,995 (let’s hope Dixons will take a cheque).Made of 24-carat gold, set with a gold Apple logo encrusted with 25.5-carat flawless diamonds, Stuart Hughes’ design weighs a mere 2.6kg (only twice the weight of its stock sibling). Sadly, even at that price it lacks Ethernet, has no optical drive and boasts one measly USB port.We’re saving up as fast as we can, but we can’t guarantee we’ll have reached our target before the limited run of 10 sells out. On the plus side, we’ve nearly got a tenner already. We might just get one to her by the time she hits 100 at this rate. Perhaps we’ll just send a telegram…
