This Gross Swarovski MacBook Air Mod Is For Cheap Pimps Only

This Gross Swarovski MacBook Air Mod Is For Cheap Pimps Only

Even just looking at the picture, it’s easy to see this 11-inch MacBook Air “luxury mod” is a grotesque mockery. Crystallize-Your-Design would probably have you believe that recreating “Angel of the Chapel Sistine” on a MacBook Air in Swarovski Crystals took some sort of artistry, but this is the high-end equivalent of smearing your laptop in glue and then rolling it in crushed glass and glitter.

Here’s where you’ll want to lose your lunch, though. This frickin’ thing is being positioned as a product that pays tribute to the life of Steve Jobs! A man whose obsession with clean zen aesthetics would have caused him to suffer some sort of rectal prolapse just looking at this glittering pile of faux-diamond puke. The audacity!

    Fitting that the cherubs pictured are actually “death angels” (black wings). They are actually leaning their elbows on a coffin!

    A biased article, not a good read

    right.  you criticise his writing but you use *that* phrase?  unless you’re twelve you have no business criticising.  

  • Nonoche

    The angels are not from the Chapel Sistine, but from Raphael’s Sistine Madonna

  • Justin Gilbert

    Regardless of bias, that thing is atrocious.

  • Brian Dunbar

    Agreed. Steve would HATE that.

  • Four Nick Hater

    Cheap? So you can afford one, then..?

    Also, who gives a fuck about Steve Jobs? He’s dead.
