Haute Toys: World’s Most Expensive iPads

Apple products are known for their simple design, which is part of the appeal for many buyers. However, as we have seen with past Apple products, there are always fashion-forward people looking to stand out from the crowd, and what better way to do so than to bling-out your trusty gadget?

Perceiving an iPad as perfect for fashion and function, many celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey and Karl Lagerfeld have already stepped out sporting their diamond, crystal or gold encrusted iPads.But you don’t need to be a famous star to get your hands on a sparkling iPad. Here is a rundown of the five most expensive iPads currently available.

Camael Diamond’s iPad – $1.2 million – $150,000

For those who believe there’s no such thing as too many diamonds, Camael has customized an extraordinary iPad with 300 carats of white diamonds. The iPad is also ornamented with rare black diamonds on the home button and Apple logo on the back and goes for $1.2 million. If that price is too steep, the company also does a gold-plated version for $150,000.
