Company To Showcase PCs Built Into Desks

A UK-based company called Powerdesk plans to showcase next month three products that integrate PCs directly into desks.

The company builds PCs from leading brands, such as Dell and HP, directly into the furniture. Each desk includes the PC manufacturer's onsite warranty. All controls, including a fully integrated CD/DVD drive and USB ports, are embedded within the work surface and placed for maximum convenience.

The approach of building PCs into desks makes ports more conveniently located, and eliminates the clutter of the CPU and cables, according to the company.

Powerdesk plans to show its products starting March 9 at the CeBIT trade fair in Hannover, Germany, including the "Barcelona," a wooden PC painted white; the "Singapore," which is designed to look antique; and "Adelaide," which features motorized, push-button height adjustment (ranging from 24 inches to 52 inches).
