Sputnik retro PC puts bureau back on the desktop

Part of the furniture

Top three mobile application threats

Some mod-jobs are too cool to overlook and this old school PC set-up certainly qualifies giving a welcome return to the desktop bureau of old.

The Sputnik 0667 from Swedish designer Love Hultén is an homage to old wooden hi-fis and looks as if it was spawned from the bonding of a Commodore PET with a Marconi telly.

The hinged wooden flap with integrated keyboard folds up when not in use, and there's even an optical drive cleverly fitted into the dashboard. Open up the Sputnik 0667 and you'll find a Gigabyte GA-H55N-USB3 Mini-ITX mobo, an Intel Core i3-550 3.2GHz CPU with 4GB of RAM and a 500GB WD hard drive. The graphics cards is a GeForce GTX 460 GPU with 1GB of RAM SweClockers reports.

The Sputnik 0667 runs Microsoft Windows, but is that really XP on the screensaver? Another retro touch perhaps.

Not only did Hultén go to the lengths of crafting this masterpiece bordering on Steampunk, he created his own imaginary advertising campaign too, modelled on Soviet promotions from the past.
