Computer and Desk Form to Create Super Office Entity

by


Wow, that sounds like it could be the premise for a buddy movie, or at least a webshow: a computer and desk as one slick, sleek unit, together forever, fighting crime while bandying witticisms (or declaring that shit just got real). But no, it’s a mod, a super mod, a hybrid of furniture and machine that serves as the anchor for the ultimate office experience: the watercooled PC desk.

Beautiful. And it hurts my heart a little, because I too have the ubiquitous beige carpet in my office, as well as a similar monitor, and a desk chair not unlike the one in this picture. Unfortunately, my desk is a gigantic, hulking creation that is most assuredly not fitted with a custom machine.

It’s even lovelier up close:

I take some small solace in the fact that the glass window down into the workings of the beast might at least serve as a distraction, as petty as it may be. I can’t help it; I’m burning with jealousy over here.

It’s all built from the ground up: desk and computer, custom designed to fit the maker’s needs. Even the reservoir was designed specifically to fit this desk. And now that it’s finished? He needs to start making them for everyone else!

    As interesting as this sounds, I don’t get why you’d need one of these when you could just go buy a new 27″ i7 quad-core iMac.

      Because this makes you look cool, and the i7 makes you look like an elitest douche.

      First i’m going to start by saying i’m NOT biased against apple. I love apple. I have an iPod and I would get a macbook pro if I needed a laptop and i’m looking at buying an iPad… BUT

      Mac desktops just don’t make sense to me
      1. Price to performance they are overpriced
      2. iMacs are computers for people who don’t need high performance
      3. When your iMac breaks you also lose the screen
      4. I’ve never heard of anyone overclocking an iMac
      5. iMacs don’t allow for watercooling
      6. Basically you pay arm and leg more for a point and click system and you lose all choice of customisation and future proofing upgradability.
      7. I could rebuild my rig for about $1,200 right now and be pushing 24Ghz+ out of my CPU what would apple charge you for 24Ghz of cpu power?

    Why not be elitist and awesome and get both? You could build some sort of awesome thin wall unit. Possibilities, man! Possibilities!
