    Keyboard is too low would be too annoying. And hope the screen has wide viewing angles....

    "Keyboard is too low"

    The guy that made is uses a wireless keyboard and mouse. Sits on couch with mouse on armrest, keyboard in lap, and feet resting on ledge where key board is stored just below the monitor.

    So how to improve a piece of technology that is known to overheat? Shove it all inside a block of insulating wood! I give that system 3months before something fries.

    Pretty cool, I guess, but what`s wrong with a normal table and a laptop? Slightly bigger monitor, but less maneuverable... meh.

    I completely agree with you but none the less I have met more than a few people with this like of very harshly and/or badly stained wood, `Its looks old and tired` they chime. No it doesnt, it looks awful

    waste of good timber. Re-design thing with higher legs for use as workshop bench. (unless you have a 500lb computer)

    I like the design, but I think it would be much more attractive, not to mention easier to build, if he used 3/4ths or even 5/8ths plywood. Using 2/6s makes it look very cluncky, like it belongs in a dorm room.

    I like it, i really do, but it would have been a lot better if the keyboard was on a surface that could be extended out so that it was right in front of you when you lay back on the couch

    It`s a good enough concept, I suppose, but it`s too short to use from the couch comfortably, the stain is painful to look and the layout seems weird. Where`s the mouse space?

    Also, Mardie, I think his lumber stained very poorly; you`d have to look closely to see that it wasn`t just a bad job. Some hardwood ply would indeed be more practical and better looking.

    Can appreciate the effort, but don`t care for the design.

    Brilliant! A folding computer! Now, if only they could make one that was portable...

    Jokes aside, that`s rather nice handiwork there!
