It's a BLACK DESK with 2 bays or 1 bay.

The blue/red etc are operator choice.

I don't see black as being tacky, what-so-ever.

From my understanding, if you contact RH, you could get one in unfinished "steel" as well.

Didn't want to comment as then I'd be the crazy one lol. I don't see anything gamer about it. If black + lights = gamer, then damn, I guess we should all remove all the lights from our homes and cars and stay away from black furnishings. I showed that desk to my father in law (by no means a gamer nor tech enthusiast) and even he found it to be very impressive and classy looking. He's a construction worker/carpenter somewhat so he really appreciated the art behind it.

I was slated to get one of the first but, in the past few weeks, have come to the realization that I have no where to put it so, have opted out.

IMO, unfinished steel would look quite amazing on this desk...Then for a custom build, go with a rusted look...Do some brown/orange Mayhem liquid and you're on the way to having a pretty damn good steampunk build.

I really wanted it too, and was going to even finance it via Bill Me Later (they plan to offer Bill Me Later checkout) but $2,000 is pretty steep. Hopefully they bring out new models that are for single builds and priced a lot cheaper, perhaps below $1,000.

Agree. But one thing I would personally change from the picture would be to either go with simple square legs, or beef up the studs and make a L shape bracket to hold it up so there is no legs and it would appear to be "floating".

As you can probably tell, I don't like the legs much ( at least what's been pictured ). Other than that, I think the l3p desk look very sleek and if done with white or clear coolant/tubing it would look very professional. Again though, personal preference for me. But if I had the money, I'd get a l3p desk.

Well in that case, no news is really news worthy as we've been doing and will continue to do everything as we are. Just... better, faster, bigger, smaller, whatever the application calls for. Why post about new phones coming out? It's still phone, those have been around for ages now rolleyes.gif

Syrillian would have been moved to tears over this.

I'm only going to be welding some surplus bed frame together and bolting on a piece of melamine for a top with some supports for lightweight speakers to hang behind the users head. That thing could very likely be used as a pedestal for a small car and still look stylish the whole time. Major props to that gentleman, MAJOR. It's unparalleled as far as I know.

I want.

Honestly I have never been that into modding case and appearance, but this....this has really got me firing on all cylinders. I think if I could something for cheap enough I'd start today.

To just show that all off right under your keyboard, not to mention it looks a MILLION TIMES EASIER to tweak stuff in there, and to not have to worry about a tower under or away from my desk? And it has hydraulics that raise both the desk and monitor heights?!?! Seriously?!

I want.
