We're finding out more about that mysterious $1 million laptop we told you about last week. It turns out you actually get fairly up-to-date tech for your million dollars, including a 17-inch LED backlit screen, a 128-gig hard disk and a slot-loading Blu-ray drive. Still, that's not quite a million dollars' worth of tech. Things get really weird with its integrated screen cleaning device, which must consist of a little elf that pops out and wipes off the display from time to time.
The jewel in the crown as a huge diamond that you carry around with you, and the laptop will only start if you insert that specific gem into its form-fitting receptacle. Company CEO Rohan Sinclair Luvaglio says diamonds have been used elsewhere in the notebook, but "we have given them purpose." Said Luvaglio, "I didn't want us to simply rehouse a laptop into a diamond-studded casing, or diamond-encrust the entire thing simply to make it expensive. We've put thought in from the keyboard down to the power charger." He must hope prospective purchasers don't put much thought into buying a laptop that costs a million dollars.
