Scan Computers launches the TARDIS PC
With thanks to www.scan.co.uk
Scan Computers is proud to announce that it is now ready to launch its latest PC system, the TARDIS.
The TARDIS, or Time and Relative Dimension in Space, has been Doctor Who’s favourite vehicle since November 1963, keeping him safe through a multitude of adventures.
The Scan TARDIS, which has developed in conjunction with UK-based design house Head Cases, has been officially licensed by BBC WW Ltd and is a scale model of the time-travelling vehicle. It comprises 45 pieces of individually cut brushed aluminium which are painted with the official Pantone blue colour of the original TARDIS, creating a faithful reproduction of the original TARDIS.
All the pieces are based on the original prop model and so recreate all the detail discerning Doctor Who fans would expect to see, from the blue beacon on the roof to the pewter door handle and period posters. The Scan TARDIS is 205 x 205 x 430mm so looks perfect on top of a desk or next to the TV in a living room.
The Scan TARDIS is now available to order from Scan Computers with a variety of specifications, starting from £935.99 inc VAT. The basic specification includes an Intel Pentium G2120 dual-core processor, 8GB of Corsair Vengeance 1,600MHz DDR3 memory, 500GB hard drive, Blu-ray reader and Microsoft Windows 7.

The Tardis PC…
The TARDIS consists of over 45 pieces of individually cut brushed aluminium. Together they create a faithful reproduction of the iconic phone box, instantly recognisable throughout the universe as the Doctor’s time machine.
As well as looking amazing, this computer case has been carefully designed to offer as much attention to detail internally as externally. The internal dimensions are intended to compliment the components exactly. This in turn, allows for maximum efficiency.
The TARDIS case is more than shapes cut out of a sheet of metal. The roof consists of three individual tiers intricately folded, welded and fixed together. This creates the smooth lines that look so appealing to the overall appearance.
The side panels and front panel are individually pressed. This forms the recess panels and windows, giving greater detail than would otherwise be available. The side panels are created to allow for easy access to the internal workings, by the ability to slide in and out.
When all the pieces are fully constructed they form three main parts – the roof, the optical drive housing and the main body. Central in the roof is the beacon which is pivotal to the integrity of the structure. It acts as the on/ off button, but also acts as the screw that holds the structure together.
The finished design (which when sold will be the classic, identifiable blue) is a highly desirable, innovation award nominated case that is sure to be a talking point in any room.
