    Actually looks quite nice, if a little bit IKEA. Could work well as an HTPC chassis.

    "Power button: Premium-grade button"

    For $299 I wouldn't accept anything less, like a "Power button: Adequate-grade button" or a "Power button: Better-than-average-grade button". I don't know, it feels like the button makes a difference. When people ask WTF is that <mod removed> under the monitor I'm gonna say "That's a Premium-grade button with a computer casing surrounding it".

    If you do get it, let me know and I promise I'll ask "WTF is that <mod removed> under the monitor?"

    I don't want to know what the mod might have removed from under his monitor... it sounds unclean!!

    that'd look really nice and clean on a desk... until you plug all the cables into the back of it and think 'Ah'

    I can tell you what the mod didn't remove, "a Premium-grade button with a computer casing surrounding it".

    Re: Cryorig Taku monitor stand PC chassis pre-orders begin

    I'm amazed that someone thinks colour coordination is so important that they bought a wooden horse, new furniture, a lampshade and picture frames and even replaced the floor boards just to match the legs of their new PC encasing monitor stand.

    Nor does all the furniture.

    Pedantism and the imprecision often necessary to keep humorous content concise are often a mismatch as well. ;-P
