The Desk Casemod: a Desktoptobottom Computer

by Lambert Varias

While integrating a computer into a desk isn’t exactly an original idea, Will Urbina’s “The Desk” casemod is (literally) flashy and makes no effort whatsoever to hide the fact that the desk itself is the computer. It’s all Plexiglas and steel and blue LEDs.

It’s hard to believe that this is Urbina’s first casemod, and I also find it hard to believe Urbina when he says that “The Desk’s function is to just get things done”, because if I had to work using The Desk I would be extremely distracted by the lights and the innards.

Speaking of innards, The Desk gets things done with the help of the following: An Intel Q6600 G0 CPU running at 3.5 GHz, Abit IP35 Pro motherboard, four 2 GB Corsair DDR2 for a total of 8 GB, an HIS HD2900 XT 512mb video card, an SB X-Fi Elite Pro sound card, two Ultra 550w power supply units, two 500gb Western Digital hard drive in Raid 0, a 320gb Seagate PATA and a 250gb WD SATA drive.

But that’s not all: see the tower sitting on top of The Desk?

Urbina built the tower – which by the way, is called, “The Tower” – so that he can turn off his additional hard drives individually. The Tower contains 5 disks – with room for 1 more – bringing The Desk’s total capacity to 3.62 terabytes. Urbina is especially proud of The Desk not just because it’s won several awards in case mod competitions, but because it’s his everyday computer. Check out his website for more pics.
