Some laptops will give you a hernia, while others will fit in a coat pocket. Some cost a day's pay--others, half a year's. Here are the outliers of the notebook world.

The Most Expensive

Name: [[xref:|Ego Bentley|Ego Bentley]]

Price: $19,943

Availability: Now

Extreme spec: The killer price tag

Reasons to love it: Two years ago we heard about the so-called [[xref:|million-dollar laptop from Luvaglio|In Pictures: The World's Most Extravagant Technology Products]]. But my choice for laptop extravagance is the [[xref:|Ego Bentley|Ego Bentley]] because, unlike the Luvaglio, it seems to exist--and that gets high points in my book.

For only $19,943, you could be the owner of a fashionable laptop encased in a handbag, made especially by Ego Lifestyle for car manufacturer Bentley. Each Bentley laptop is handmade and features titanium chrome detailing, fine leather, crossover hand stitching, and the "classic Bentley knurling effect on the handle." (Translation: The handle is bumpy instead of smooth.) If you don't like what you see on the sales floor, you can have your Bentley crafted to suit your own ego.

The Bentley has a 12-inch screen, a 160GB hard drive, 2GB of RAM, a Mobile AMD Turion 64 processor, three USB ports, S-Video out, a VGA port, a Webcam, a DVD-RW drive, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi; its total weight is nearly 6 pounds.

For the money, you would think that the [[xref:|Bentley's specs|Ego Bentley Specs]] would be a little flashier, and that it might weigh a little less. But hey, nearly 20 grand is a small price to pay for classic knurling, right?
