In Pictures: Top-hat tech - 11 high-class and high-price devices

Curious how the 1 per cent live? These 11 luxurious tech products come under the heading of "If you have to ask how much it costs..."

When all is said and done, the rich really are different from the rest of us. They demand the best of everything and are willing to pay whatever it takes.

Whether it's a $2,500 Ethernet cable, a set of $14,500 gold earbuds or a $2.5-million IMAX home theater, the 11 luxury gadgets that follow are equal parts style and technology -- and often handmade from some of the world's most exotic materials. While we've included prices for each, the old saying holds true: If you have to ask how much it costs, you probably can't afford it.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
