we all love a little steampunk injected into our 21st century gadgets. when we saw the awesomely gorgeous steampunk desktop computers and peripherals, we lament why aren’t there any steampunk laptops? the fact is, there are such laptops around but only until recently, they are up for sales – for a cool $5,500 and that’s the price for the first batch with future batches’ price to be around $7,500. now, that’s one heck of luxury laptop to own but then again, its creator Richard Nagy has taken pain to labor these fruits of love. i can’t say its expensive cos’ you will not only be getting a 21st century hardware but a piece of steampunk art, and we all know that we can’t put a price on art.
Robert claimed that the images are works from five years ago, which he did for amusement “using inferior tools, a free laptop, and very little money” and he added that his “abilities, resources and standards have grown tenfold since then.” i think he was being modest. all i know is the laptop is one of the coolest steampunk gadget i have ever seen. never mind about skills and all, clearly it is awesome and i can imagine with his improved skills, these steampunk laptops will be even more stunning. ready to order one? you can contact Robert via Datamancer website to make your order. in mean time, check out a few more images of what Robert has created five years ago.
