Lian Li is always making... interesting... cases. Or in this case desks lol. The DK-04X also has a coupon for 35% (I think) off: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Pr...gnorebbr=1

Will pair perfectly with a $1500 49" gaming monitor [samsung.com]. Nevermind the coupon. Tell Newegg to keep the change.

In 10 years the chunk of metal will still be a chunk of metal (and a desk), but the ports will be outdated.

It's a shame they don't have a removable face plate for the ports. Would seem reasonable given teh price, plus revenue opportunity for them later (upgrades etc).

Is it cold when my arms touch it in winter time? Or I have to buy a heater together?

Would someone mind sharing why they would purchase this over a separate desk and computer?

agreed thats why in general is so hard to justify buying an expensive aluminum enclosure. In 3-4 years those ports, features will be so outated you'd want to move to a newer enclosure.

I don't understand how this can go front page and only list it as 'black aluminum'. I had to click the link just to find out what it was. 'Computer Case' in the title would have been nice.

unique desk. I would consider buying it myself if I was in need of one. Personally, most affordable desks are pretty fugly. although, in this price range and up, you can certainly find some nice desks. as for ports going out of date. i would not be too worried about that personally.

I would not buy it (too rich for my taste) but saw one installed and i must admit it looked slick. Really a niche product but cool idea.

Issue that this deal is not really slick if you consider that the original stp was supposed to be $1499. So with the shipping at $120. It kind of kills it.

If newegg had thrown free shipping then it would have been sweeter.

That monitor actually looks badass. May be in for one.
