The recent talks around the globe are about a new kind of laptop that has the royal and antique looks. They are none but the Retro Laptops. The very sight of the retro laptop will give you a clue of a Victorian music box. But the interesting fact is that the box has a laptop inside. The intricately hand-crafted wooden case consists of a Hewlett-Packard ZT1000 laptop. The laptop runs both Windows XP and Ubuntu Linux. Imagine holding an antique piece of violin and playing contemporary music in it. This laptop is a mixture of pride, antique royalty and technology. The 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 and many more are present to excite you. The laptop is not opened by a click but by an antique clock-winding key. A custom-built ratcheting switch made from old clock parts is an explanation for it.

You have speaker grills in violin styles. The whole laptop sounds exciting and it will be the sensation for the forthcoming days. Though it is a sensation now, how long will this trend go on? This is an answer that many have in mind. The sustainability of these styles is a question to be reflected upon.
