There is always a heavy dose of absurdity in the world of designer luxury goods. We are talking about materialistic accessories, and what $1,000 is to one person, $1,000,000 is to the next. If you are one of the few people in this world who finds $11,000,000 to be a suitable price tag for the perfect laptop sleeve, then I have quite the treat for you.

Made of 8,800 diamonds, the sales pitch for this Diamond Laptop Sleeve sounds as serious as they come. CoverBee, the creator of this item, talks about the person who has everything deciding to cover their laptop with the most luxurious case ever.


When majority of the brand’s other other laptop sleeves sell for a mere $42, this gimmick has made the $203,000 Hermes Crocodile Birkin appear completely affordable. You know what else is affordable now? What was once deemed the world’s most expensive handbag by Guiness Book of World Records, which merely costs $3.8 million. But check out the rest of CoverBees offerings – the $42 sleeves are, um, quite ugly. Sure, they’re simple, but mostly they are just not appealing to the eye.

All of a sudden my desire for a new designer handbag seems quite simple and affordable. So does the vacation to the Caribbean and the house in the Hamptons. More info via CoverBee.

    People can spend their money however they wish…but I hope that the individual (if there is one) who would buy an $11 million laptop sleeve is donating a billion to philanthropic efforts!

    If the sleeve is $11m, can’t wait to hear about how much the laptop cost! :D

    Haha still better than the croc Birkin though, at least diamonds are well acknowledged as being the height of fine luxury goods. I always wonder what companies do with stuff like this. Is someone really going to buy this, or the diamond Victoria’s Secret bra or whatever?

    Ridiculous. I wonder if they’re just pricing it like this in order to gain publicity

  • FashionableLena

    Definitely for someone with more money than brains.  I think that i would rather take the diamonds and have a fabulout necklace, ring, earrings…
