Lian Li has introduced a new electronic sit/stand desk chassis, the DK-04, which holds a full system under its tempered glass surface and raises and lowers at the push of a button.

On display at their booth at CES last week, the DK-04 offers a compelling option for someone interested in a standing workstation, with the added benefit of housing a powerful custom rig (and looking really cool in the process).

There is room under the glass desktop (this model does not use a drawer) for up to an ATX motherboard with one dual-slot expansion card, which can be used with a GPU up to 320 mm in length. CPU coolers of up to 120 mm are supported, along with 120 mm width radiators up to 480 mm long.

The front panel offers 4x USB 3.0 ports, RGB lighting controls, and a 5.25-inch optical drive bay; and there is internal storage support for up to 8x 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch hard drives. The entire unit is 47.24 inches wide, 29.53 inches deep, and can be adjusted from approximately 30 - 46 inches in height.

The control panel for the electric height adjustment includes the option for up to 4 presets, allowing the desk to easily adjust to various pre-defined seated and standing positions.

Pricing and availability have yet to be announced, but expect this to come in higher than IKEA's popular solution (which doesn't offer a the functionality of a full PC enclosure inside, of course).

I bet this has more power than the TRS 80!

Isn't this old news?

I guess bringing it to a LAN party is out of the question.

Yeah if PcPer wanted to sponsor me I would gladly build a system in this. Just saying. I'll nascar myself and cars.

I really like this but i would love some form of lamination in case the glass breaks so there wont be pieces of glass everywhere. maybe its just my paranoia with past experiences on glass desks.

This is tempered glass it probably supports 300lb+, the up/down motor will break long before the glass will. unless you dance on it with metal cleats.

The PSU should be hidden for a neater look and there's definitely room in there for a drawer. This is not complete.

Neat idea. Hopefully they let you keep the review sample!

The stand under this and the control panel look identical to my GeekDesk. If it is a GeekDesk, that's a good thing as mine has been working flawlessly for several years.
