Steampunk computers look older than grandma

I admire people who can take a modern working product like a computer, turn it into a steampunk work of art, and still have the device function properly. If I were to disassemble a computer display, I am sure the thing would never work again.

A few sweet steampunk computers have shown up over on Yanko Design. The things use copious amounts of wood, brass, and old-fashioned decorations to turn that plain PC into a working art piece. I particularly like the sign on what appears to be the tower in the photo above that says "The Apple Company."

The LCD gets a marble base and the keyboard has keys that appear to be straight off an 1800's cash register. I wonder how comfortable that keyboard is for typing. The mouse pad is cool as well. The attention to detail on these machines is impressive indeed.
