Laptops / Notebooks

Boing Boing is quickly pioneering a name for itself in the steampunk/electronics mod department, to the point where I think they could quite possibly branch out and create a whole new blog for the basement-dwelling masses. Clunk Clunk, anyone?

Their latest feature is of a laptop kitted out to resemble an old-fashioned portable typewriter, courtesy of writer Mary Robinette Kowal. Bet I know the kind of Mills ‘n Boons-y type of poetic ramblings she’ll be tapping out on this baby, just look at the thing! If only Catherine had possession of one of these mods, Heathcliffe would’ve been hers, sob.
