Our pal Datamancer has finally finished and posted details on his steampunk laptop. And it was worth the wait. Seriously cool. He also has a tutorial on making the brass faceplate he used on the mod and a page showing his gorgeous custom-made steampunk keyboards. I like how he has a customer testimonial on the keyboards from sci-fi/fantasy author William King (who writes game fiction for Games Workshop).

    How would I be able to possibly, one day, have something like this made for me out of my existing laptop???
    How much do you think it would be?

    I LOVE the style and everything about it.
    But I could never do it myself.
