Power to your desktop PC

If you are fed up explaining to the other half the barrage of cables are a necessity to having a desktop computer at home, perhaps you need to invest in a Powerdesk.

The company has launched two designs to choose from, the Barcelona and Tokyo, which have been created for use in the home or in the office.

The Powerdesk is the brainchild of a UK design company and offers world’s first truly integrated desk and personal computer.

Using fully upgradeable brand name PCs from the likes of Dell and HP, the Powerdesk makes your computer invisible and easier to use you can’t see (or trip over) the computer or cables and you won’t have to scramble around to use the basic controls, plug in a USB device or load a CD. The controls, ports and CD/DVD drives are built into the thickness of the desktop, all to hand, just where you need them.

Some Powerdesk models also feature motorised power lifting legs, which enables the height to be easily adjusted to fit the person that is sitting at it.

Powerdesks can be used for teaching infants one minute and teenagers the next. Almost instantly, a primary school IT suite can become an adult education facility – it’s like having a range of dedicated IT suites in one room.

Developed by Powerdesk’s team of designers, the Barcelona is made of wood and Tokyo comprises steel, glass and wood.

The surface materials are made from Dupont Corian is amazing scuff, scratch and microbe resistant, easy to clean, colourfast and durable in every sense.

Powerdesk also offer a bespoke service for customers who want a desk built to their own specifications.

Powerdesk Barcelona is available from £1250 and Tokyo from £1850.
