Got a Spare $10,000? Here’s Your Keyboard: ADATA’s 24K Gold Designby Dr. Ian Cutress on January 10, 2020 4:00 PM EST

RGB has been the main ‘feature’ of the gaming PC market of late, with all the fancy lights adding to the ‘bling’ of a standard machine. But what if that bling was actual bling, and we started moving into precious metals being used for the most random accessories? Well ADATA has you covered with its 24-carat gold keyboard design.
ADATA told us that they initially received the request from someone with enough money, and they designed their aluminium Summoner keyboard to have 24K gold plating. After building it, they built a few more: six to be exact. The retail price of the unit, we were told, is $10k. Unfortunately ADATA isn’t sampling this one to press.
The gold on the keyboard is a plating, rather than making it solid gold. However, behind the gold is aluminium, which makes it heavier than a standard keyboard. The unit was actually quite cold to type on, given that all the keys are metallic. The keyboard isn’t plated at the bottom, in case anyone was wondering.
If you have money burning a hole in your pocket, then give your ADATA rep a call.
I forgot to ask if it comes with a warranty.

khanikun - Sunday, January 12, 2020 - linkPick the right car and it could be a good investment. The second gen Ford GT cost $450k new in 2017. Sells for $1.4 to $1.8 mil now. 2012 Lexus LFA Nürburgring edition was like $500k new. Sells around $800k now.
The only problem is being able to accurately guess which car will actually increase in value and not just drop off a cliff in value. Not to mention, be one of the lucky people to actually buy one. They only made 50 of those Lexus LFA Nürburgring cars and the GT is limited, but they are making 1000 of them. Slow though, 365 of them being made each year.

Hulk - Friday, January 10, 2020 - linkNot a very attractive design.
s.yu - Saturday, January 11, 2020 - linkI agree. If they have to gold plate some keyboard, plate G915.
lilkwarrior - Friday, January 10, 2020 - linkI’d very much rather paint my entire apartment with vanta black paint, get a 24K Apple Watch, & invest in other eccentric things rather than this
s.yu - Saturday, January 11, 2020 - linkNot a good idea, that paint is more prone to wear than this gold plate.
Samus - Friday, January 10, 2020 - linkDonald Trump would be proud!
GreyFox7 - Friday, January 10, 2020 - linkNO, he wouldn't. The thing looks like it got a bad spray paint job from a 5th grader.
blppt - Friday, January 10, 2020 - linkTo be fair, so does Trump.
