Scavenger: Gold Plated Macbook for $5,000

Scavenger: Gold Plated Macbook for $5,000

What the... a gold Macbook? We're not suggesting anyone buy it, but we'd never even heard of one. A post that Sonia at Unpluggd wrote here talks about a company called Computer Choppers, which apparently custom-plates Macs in 24kt gold, maybe this is one of theirs. You'd think that for this price the seller would have bothered to charge it up and test it, but apparently not — although since they "found it after cleaning the stage area of a Boston club", maybe it has Stephen Tyler's home number on it. We also found a Danish looking bureau, set of Arne Jacobsen Series 7 Chairs, some bentwood Thonet chairs, a Norman Cherner Plycraft side chair, and for those of you who lusted after Martha's Vintage Sink in Kyle's post about Hanging Sink Curtains.. here's a similar sink for only $80. Click to see these any more finds after the jump.
