The million dollar Computer is bling bling

A Japanese company, Zeus, has released what looks to be the most expensive desktop bound Windows-based computer at the cost of £375,000 excluding VAT and Posting.

The Jupiter is made up of solid platinum with incrusted diamonds that have been arrange to look like the 12 astrological constellations; the Zeus has a cheaper solid gold version, called Mars, which sells for only £280,000.

Unfortunately, don't expect out-of-this-world performance when it comes to what's on the inside.

The parts that make up Jupiter are not even worth £2000 should you buy them online which means that the casing itself is probably worth more than £360,000 - now that's an investment.

The computer comes with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of DDR2 memory, 1TB hard drive, a 24-inch LCD monitor, Windows Vista Ultimate edition, a crappy Geforce 8400GS video card and a Dual Blu-ray/HD-DVD drive.

But, not everything is lost; they even throw in a floppy disk drive, the keyboard and a mouse.
