What Doctor Who uses to check email

“This may look like a Victorian music box, but inside the intricately hand-crafted wooden case lives a Hewlett-Packard ZT1000 laptop that runs both Windows XP and Ubuntu Linux.

“It features an elaborate display of clockworks under glass, engraved brass accents, claw feet, an antiqued copper keyboard and mouse, leather wrist pads, and customized wireless network card.

“The machine turns on with an antique clock-winding key by way of a custom-built ratcheting switch made from old clock parts. The violin-style sound holes, or “F-holes” are functional speaker grills covered with black cloth. The original keyboard LEDs now shine through small plastic gems.”
