Default Bentley Laptop

Possibly the worst looking laptop in the world!

Bentley, the luxury car manufacturer, is hoping to entice the world’s super rich with the release of a new £10,000 laptop computer. Under the bonnet you've got Microsoft Vista, a 64 bit processor, and a 160GB hard drive. There are also 12 direct access keys for quickly getting to the point.

The Bentley laptop is hand-built with white-gold frames and the Bentley logo, the exclusive computer comes in a leather case cross-stitched like the cars’ seats. The exterior is in Bentley leather and the laptop’s handle is modelled on the company’s trademark door handles.

Only 250 of the computers will go on sale worldwide from this autumn. However, if the blogosphere is anything to go by, there are unlikely to be many takers.

One unimpressed blogger said: "I’m sorry, but that really is one of the ugliest laptop form factors I’ve ever seen. But, then again, if you can afford a Bentley, you might as well throw heaps of cash on this thing, as well. "You’ll be the butt of plenty of cruel sniggers, but what the hey…you’ll be chic. And that’s all that really counts, isn’t it?" Another disgrunted blogger wrote: "This is a pointless product. Anyone who buys this laptop has too much money for his/her own good."

OMG !!! Looks more like a lady's handbag when folded.

Whoever has the money and buys this contraption is lacking some good taste.

puhleeezzz

Dont turn this into a blonde jokes thread.

Lots of money and no taste : This is minimum requisite for buying this laptop.
Also you may be asked to prove that your IQ is below 10 for getting this laptop

EDIT: I may have put the I'm Stupid icon. But hey I am not stupid enough to buy this. lolzzz
