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.


A couple of years ago I used some scrap aluminum angle and leftover sheet to build my own tech station. SO much easier to tweak and dust than an enclosed case. Tons easier for cable managment. It's in a storage shed bescause i had to move so I borrowed an Antec and have never had the time to build an improved version. If the new design works I'm going to come up with some construction-jigs and offer them for sale as rivet-together kits.

To each his own. The cross desk and L3p look tacky compared to this.

And to all you guys commenting on how it doesnt have wires, power cords, memory, etc. Take a look at his actual build log on Coolermasters forums. Pics of the entire build process as well as youtube videos of it in action.

The craftsmanship is amazing.
The design (especially the legs/base) opens a lot of questions and it is too bulky for my taste, but overall nothing but impressed. wink.gif

This is my main problem. While the craftsmanship is absolutely top notch, I feel the desk is a bit too bulky for me personally.

Looks nice, but I just can't imagine the hassle if he has to move in a new house or something. Personally, for my needs, I don't even want it. But I have to give him props, it looks freaking sleek and stylish. That's a nice way to show those stupid mac users that a pc can be sleek and stylish (because even with a nice case some say that you have a lot of wires and stuff...). Stupid mac users... biggrin.gif Don't take it personal. thumb.gif

Paslis' designs are known for being absolutely perfect. He makes it all himself, without assistance from others. This is OVERCLOCK.NET. An enthusiast site. A comment like yours would be like a Chrysler Lebaron owner going on to an Aston Martin forum and making the same comment. It's unnecessary, unproductive, and makes zero sense in a place like this.

Holy overreaction, Batman O_O

How in the hell do you get that "implication" from that comment? All he said was that money is no object for this dude, which is obviously true. There is really no overt implication beyond that, especially not to the effect that the modder "doesn't deserve" his own work, lol. Also, "known for being absolutely perfect" is a bit much. Many have commented on the shoddy monitor implementation, which I agree with. Kind of mars the whole idea of an all-in-one desk-puter if you just slap two random monitors on top without even trimming the bezel.

At least you included the token car-analogy, though. Those are in no way stale and irrelevant thumb.gif
