Alright, standing desks might be bullshit, but we’re willing to ignore the science because, well, look. Lian Li’s created one that also happens to be a computer, and it’s a thing of beauty. Alright, its design is definitely going to split opinion, but you can’t say it isn’t striking.
The £1,269.99 -- I know -- DK-04 is out in May, and stands at between 780mm and 1,170mm tall. Built of glass, aluminium and iron, it looks like a hefty unit, and measures in at 1,200mm long and 750mm wide. It’s basically a dining table you’d be terrified of spilling anything on ever.
Removing the lid will provide access to the innards, which include serious-looking fans, hard drive bays, I/O ports and expansion slots. There’s also support for a liquid-cooling system, so you can put together the monstrous machine of your dreams. However, bear in mind that the whole thing crumbles the moment you sit down. [Engadget]
