We're not going to go as far as to say that desktops are dead, because they're not. A lot of people still have desktops and either have a laptop as well, or don't even want to bother with them. We still have our G4 tower that we use as a giant external hard drive, and don't plan on getting rid of it any time soon. However, we do wish it were a little smaller and designed better.
We've talked about Jeffrey Stephenson and his PC side tables before, and he's back at it again. This time, much more mind blowing than a side table. He took his inspiration from a pretty popular source, and turned things up to 11. After all, the ones that go up to 11 are just better &mdash we learned that from Spinal Tap.
The Level 11 was inspired by Thermaltake Level 10 created by BMW Designworks. While that design is great, Stephenson knew he could take it one notch further and we're happy he did. He scaled the BMW design down by about 75% and used a pretty innovative material in the world of computers &mdash wood.
The Level 11 is made from hard Pennsylvania Cherry with Aluminum inlay. The computer has quite a bit to offer: a 1.2GHz VIA Nano 64-bit CPU with the ability to play 1080p video via HDMI, powered by the VIA P820 Pico-ITX main board. There are obviously a lot more specs and features that are available from Jeffrey Stephenson.
