    Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd, is pleased to announce that the DK01 desk chassis, along with community collaborated chassis and two unreleased models, will be on display at CeBIT 2014 in Hannover, Germany from March 10 to 14, 2014. Lian Li invites all interested parties to visit them at Hall 17, Booth F24. Combining the symbiotic relationship of desks and computer cases, the DK01 is a chassis like no other. Constructed of aluminum, this hybrid chassis allows DIY builders to build a full computer inside the desk and show off their hardware creations through the tempered glass desktop. The DK01 eliminates the need for PC towers.

    Modified according to feedback across the social media and tech media sphere, the newly released, community collaborated PC-A51 mid-tower chassis as well as the updated versions of the previewed PC-B16 and PC-A61 will also be on display at Lian Li's booth. These three fully aluminum chassis are a conglomeration of user feedback on prototype models and Lian Li's time-honed expertise and engineering capabilities. Visitors to the booth will be able to provide their feedback for the PC-B16 and PC-A61 as well as the DK01, which will be updated additionally after the show.

    In addition to the community collaborated aluminum chassis, Lian Li will be unveiling two unreleased models that attendees will not want to miss.

    With a history of eye-catching unveilings at CeBIT, Lian Li will once again prove itself an industry leader and innovator without sacrificing product quality. Attendees will be able to see the engineering expertise of Lian Li in meeting the latest trends and market demands.

    Nice idea, but why does it have to be looking so cheap and crappy?

    Lian-Li is trying to hit the untapped market of those users who regularly enjoy eating tater-tots and drinking fruit squash from beakers directly from desk to hand to mouth. I certainly hope there is some kind of brushed aluminium device for such users to perch their soiled nappies on in "no quality sacrificed" style. Perhaps they should include one of those multi coloured keyboards with each section highlighted for the users.

    The placement of the front ports is a recipe for disaster - one jerk of the right knee and you snap off any connected thumb drives, especially if used by kids (and it doesn't look like adults could use this comfortably).

    It'll be better if they make the desk leg detachable. Someone might want to buy it but after seeing the legs, they change their mind. Legs to be sold separately with different design and most importantly, adjustable height. For me personally, the legs is total turn-off while the desk itself is fine regardless the pricetag

    Would be nice for LAN parties if the legs were collapsible.
