This is the original page for the Steampunk Laptop
that has been on this site for several years.
I am now currently taking pre-orders on a newer version
that will contain more modern hardware and a more refined
design, based on this original.

may look like a Victorian music box, but inside this
intricately hand-crafted wooden case lives a Hewlett-Packard
ZT1000 laptop that runs both Windows XP and Ubuntu
Linux. It features an elaborate display of clockworks
under glass, engraved brass accents, claw feet, an
antiqued copper keyboard and mouse, leather wrist pads,
and customized wireless network card. The machine turns
on with an antique clock-winding key by way of a custom-built
ratcheting switch made from old clock parts.
particular laptop is not for sale, but feel free to
join the mailing
list because I do plan to build some more in the
future, and possibly some smaller netbook versions
using a Lenovo
Netbook or similar.
