Datamancer's Steampunk Laptop Available for Pre-order
Richard “Doc” Nagy is no stranger to those who are into the steampunk scene. Around five years ago, he created a splash by making his first steampunk laptop that ran on Windows XP. He’s also made some Victorian-era keyboards in the ensuing years. But his creations were pretty much not available to the general steampunk-loving public.
There’s always bound to be good news at one point or another, and it’s time for steampunk enthusiasts to get their hands on Nagy’s handiwork. In his web site ((Datamancer)), the self-proclaimed “steampunk contraptor, technical artist, and jackass-of-all-trades” has announced that he is taking pre-orders for steampunk laptops.
The image shown above is the original laptop created five years ago. As Nagy says, that laptop was made “using inferior tools, a free laptop, and very little money.” He has gone a long way since then, and for sure, you will be getting a much better laptop if you buy one from him today.
And if Nagy is going to make more improvements on the new batch of laptops, then they are definitely worth considering. The only thing is that, as one can expect, these steampunk laptops do not come cheap. For the first batch of pre-orders, the price is set at $5500. However, for future batches, the price is predicted to go up to $7500 – even more. So if you’re a serious collector, there is no better time than now to place your order. You can pass up on other thingamajigs to get your hands on this baby! For inquiries, send an e-mail to Richard Nagy at [email protected]
