One of the first and best Steampunk PCs

This is one of the first Steampunk PCs mods I ever saw and it still stands head and shoulders above the rest. Created by the living legend, Datamancer, the craftsmanship and attention to detail is just astounding. Even cooler...it's a linux box!

You have to see this to believe it -



That key laying next to the laptop is actually required to power it on! No, I don't just mean to open the thing up, but to actually POWER the LAPTOP ON! For the love of all things holy man, does it get any cooler??

Here's the laptop opened up -




Is this man not a god! Every element seems to reach across time to evoke to style and design of the Victorian era. This would be a breathtaking work of art but it's functional too. And this is just one of Datamancers many steampunk conversions and mods. It's no wonder he was featured in Wired magazine!

I highly recommend checking out his site, you will not be disappointed.

Oh yeah...he sells a bunch of his steampunk creations too ;)
