Despite what everyone said when they were announced, it seems like Apple’s gold iPhone 5S models are flying off the shelves. According to Cult of Mac, gold phones are going for stupid amounts of money on eBay already.
The gold iPhone 5s is in very short supply. Apple has already sold out, and is unlikely to get them in volume for weeks to come. They are hard to come by. Many of Apple’s flagship stores received only a few units while many stores had none.

There’s no accounting for taste!
