File this under "Impressive & Expensive." This week, UK-based computer retailer Scan Computers revealed their latest creation - The TARDIS System. It's a BBC-approved PC of fairly modest specs slapped into a case built to resemble The Doctor's preferred method of travel. That's The Doctor from Doctor Who, for the uninformed who happen to find themselves here.
The machine’s case is a scale model of the TARDIS comprised of forty-five individually cut pieces of brushed aluminum. The manufacturer’s website states that it was all fit together with the components in mind. Said components include the following: 3.1Ghz Intel Pentium G2120 Dual Core processor, 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 RAM, 500GB Western Digital HD, 300W BN133 SFX Micro-ATX PS, Sony Blu-ray writer and Windows 7 Premium 64-bit. It’s bigger on the inside; so, of course, there’s no need to worry about overheating. That last bit was a joke, actually. You should probably reboot it every so often to be on the safe side.
This stylish piece of hardware will set you back £935.99, or $1,513.31 in US Dollars. That last bit of info is a moot point as it appears Scan doesn’t ship outside of the European Union. That’s too rich for my blood, anyhow. Will you be ordering/attempting to import one?
