How Not To Spend $750K On A Computer

Zeus Computers

By Evan Ackerman

If you have several hundred thousand dollars in your pocket, are looking for a mediocre desktop PC, and like teh shiny, then one of these computers Zeus might be exactly what you’re looking for (although you’d be better served by a swift smack to the side of the head). The Zeus Jupiter is cast from solid platinum and encrusted with diamonds in the shape of constellations for about $748,000, while the Mars casing is only $560,000 in modest solid gold. Inside each case is an underwhelming system consisting of a 3GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with a 256MB GeForce 7200GS graphics card, a 1 TB SATA drive, 2 gigs of RAM, and either a Blu-ray or HD-DVD drive with Vista Ultimate preinstalled.

Now, just take a moment to consider what else you could blow $750,000 on… Like, two trips to space. And a personal jetpack. And a new Nissan GT-R. And another GT-R for when you crash the first one. Or, you could get a platinum computer that sits under your desk and collects dust. Your call.
