Shut up and take my money: a Doctor Who TARDIS desktop PC

With the holiday season now in full swing, you may be tempted to replace your old PC with a shiny, new, upgraded model. And if you’re a fan of BBC sci-fi show Doctor Who, we may have found exactly what you’re looking for.

As you can see above, the PC’s case is a small replica of the TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimension In Space), a blue police box that allows the Doctor and his human companions to travel through time and space. The doors don’t open, but the “Police Box” black sign does double as a CD/DVD-ROM drive.

The TARDIS PC is an officially licensed product by the BBC and sold by U.K. company Scan Computer. Below is a full list of specs for this sexy machine, which can be further customized, according the company:

  • Intel Pentium G2120 Dual Core, 3.1GHz
  • Gigabyte GA-H61N-USB3, Intel H61
  • 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz
  • 500GB Western Digital HDD
  • 300W be quiet! BN133 SFX Micro-ATX PSU
  • Sony Blu-ray Writer
  • Microsoft Windows 7 Premium 64bit

So how much does the TARDIS PC cost? Well, Scan is asking £936 (or about $1,511). It’s obviously a little more expensive than a comparable machine that doesn’t look like a police box. However, like bow ties, other machines aren’t nearly as cool.
