With the financial crisis starting to bite, conspicuous consumption probably isn't an option for most people at the moment.
However, if you are lucky enough to have some savings and you're nervous about keeping them in the still-wobbly banking system, why not throw them into the Pure*Gold PC?
We're not sure how much of the precious metal this most bling of computers actually contains, but with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, it should at least be powerful enough to do some music on.
Also inside are a 100GB hard drive and 4GB of RAM, while connectivity options include eight USB 2.0 ports and two FireWire sockets.
No news on how much the Pure*Gold PC actually costs, but if you have to ask, then you probably can't afford it.
