Good luck expensing this one. UK-based luxury goods outfit Luvaglio has unveiled the first seven-figure laptop, with a 17" LED screen, 128GB of memory, a built in USB memory stick, MP3 player and Blue-Ray disc drive.

As for the bling factor, there's a big, fat diamond ring that serves as the power button and detaches when the computer is off so it can also be worn as a piece of jewelry. The diamond also serves as security identification that unlocks the computer. Each laptop is completely customizable with a selection of "precious metals, leathers and real woods," not to mention, of course, more gemstones.
