It turns out we’ve been incorrectly referring to those rectangular-shaped things with the keyboard and mouse as ‘desktop PCs’. There we were, gibbering on about how this desktop or that desktop was the greatest thing since whatever and the whole time we should have been referring to them as ‘desk-bound PCs’ or ‘on-desk computers’.
We apologise, we were wrong. A desktop computer is, by definition, a computer that’s built into a desk. Something akin to the Powerdesk. Using fully upgradeable brand name PCs from the likes of Dell and HP, the Powerdesk integrates everything into the chassis of the desk, tirelessly doing away with irritating things like trailing wires and the colour beige.
Frankly, we like it very much. You can choose from the £1250 Barcelona or the £1850 Tokyo (pictured), or you can spec your own Powerdesk with the ‘bespoke service’. Bespoke is a word that conjures visions of smoking jackets and vast drawing rooms, which we’re all for. Choose from a variety of finishes, styles and, most importantly, prices and knock yourself together the ultimate combination of computing power and sartorial loveliness. Check them out here.
Just one thing – ‘The most significant advance in computer design for the last 25 years’? Nah.
