Elton John-signed iPods benefit charity, look fabulous

Here at MacUser, we know who our target demographic is and we know what they want. And we think it can best be summed up in seven words: Swarovski-encrusted Elton John-signed iPod nanos.

Nailed it.

Look, you’re a discerning shopper, and as much as you like that iPod nano you got for Christmas, you’re a little worried that it’s falling short in the bling department. Maybe you should consider a trade-up that not only helps you, but helps others as well.

See, if you buy one of these Swarovski-encrusted Elton John-signed iPod nanos (I know, I know—still your beating heart), at least 12.5% of the price goes to the Elton John AIDS Foundation, which helps people around the world who are dealing with AIDS. As you might expect, they’re a little pricier than your usual iPod nano: the 8GB goes for £400 (about $565) and the 16GB model runs £450 (~$636).

But hey, hey: crystals. And a laser-engraved Elton John signature. It pays for itself, friends. Oh, and did we mention that they’re throwing in a copy of Elton’s Rocket Man: The Definitive Hit CD with each and every unit sold? Because there’s nothing like listening to “I Guess That’s Why They Call it the Blues” on your crystal-garnished baby blue iPod nano.

The iPods start shipping out on February 9th, but you can pre-order now. As with normal iPods, they come with a one-year guarantee. Come on now—you don’t want to be the only one on your block without one, right?
