Lian Li has officially announced their standing desk shown at CES 2016, and the DK-04 offers variable (powered) height adjustment.
The DK-04 in standing position
"Standing desks aren’t just fashionable, they’re proven to be beneficial and healthy in multiple ways. Lian Li sought to design a new computer desk chassis in this spirit. Users can configure up to four different height settings, from 67.5cm to 116cm, for the desk to automatically adjust to at the press of a button. The DK-04 can serve as a standing desk for work and switch to a sit-down gaming desk in an instant!"

I had a chance to check out the DK-04 in person at this year's CES, and it was an impressive piece of hardware. My first question? How much will it cost, of course! Lian Li didn't have an answer for me back in January, but official pricing was included in today's annoucement.
I checked out the DK-04 at CES 2016
The cost? MSRP is $1499, and the DK-04 will be available on May 10, 2016.
If you've priced ergonomic office furniture the $1499 price tag won't seem quite so shocking, especially for a powered sit/stand design made entirely from aluminum (don't forget this is also a PC enclosure).
The DK-04 is also a full-sized PC enclosure under the glass top
Of course, in the world of PC components it's obviously going to require a specific use-case to justify an enclosure that costs as much as a fairly high-end gaming PC.
“If you’ve priced ergonomic
“If you’ve priced ergonomic office furnature the $1499 price tag won’t seem quite so shocking”
Very true… Add the word “ergonomic” and they could charge an additional $1,000 and people will still gobble them up!
But…. I’ll just use my laptop instead.
Sebastian! SHAME ON
Sebastian! SHAME ON YOU!!
You too are into POOR people, PEASANT shit??
[lol… Just thought I’d get in before that douchebag psycho.]
$1400? Lian Li? I’ll wait
$1400? Lian Li? I’ll wait for the $400 Coolermaster case that looks better and is built better. Got burned by the Li once, never again.
Time to break out the ol’
Time to break out the ol’ mediocre cabinetry skills and try to build one of these myself :p
