    looks cool. they should put foot-pedals at the base so you can adjust brightness or turn it on/off with our feet (customizable and connected via bluetooth :D)

    edit: and they should put a printer into the wood, so it doesn't look like a printer but just a slot in the wood (like the slot-loading drives except wider)

    maybe for brightness/volume, but certainly not power! that thing would be turned on and off waaay too much then!

    i just can't see anyone buying this though, sure it looks nice, but doesn't exactly fit in either

    Kind of cool - but it could only go in a few places and look good. Nice wood grain, though :D

    That is Gorgeous

    This is not to be meant "practical" in the sense we use our Macs. It is for something very special and haute couture. The trackpad shoulod be centered, and bigger.

    If I had plenty of disposable income, I would buy one...

    I don't know why, but I like it. Just something about it that intrigues me.

    WOW :eek: That is Cool. I realize it's not meant to replace a desk but as a kiosk in a hotel or what have you. I would just wonder how durable it is as most kiosk for lobby's tend to be build like tanks and with good reason.

    Definatly a interesting look.

    Wow, that's really cool. It's great for the places mentioned on the site (hotels, shows, etc). Definitely not for the home though. Like the look of the wood too.

    But I just have to ask... iWood? :D

    I believe the intention for this was a type of info kiosk center thing. Like in museums and such. Not for home use.

    Yea they probably are. Not sure if it means anything, but in the 'Where to buy' page, there isn't any U.S. contact info.

    Cool? Yes.

    Good quality? Not.


    Look at the image on the home page closely. I've seen better joints in high school shop class. (And yes I'm talking about wood joints)

    I doubt individuals can purchase it either. I could see it in something like bath and body works or similar "organic" type stores where you can browse their online catalog.
