Huge! What are you going to use all that space on the bench tops for?

Don't know yet... really just wanted the storage more than anything, the bench top was just a side effect :p

Probably end up with rubbish on top, but more than likely, models or some crap like that :p

the best desk i ever had is the long skinny ones made up of a ikea counter top slab thats 92 inches.

That'll probably be my next desk! I'm currently using an IKEA Jonas (now the Malm I think) and it's a bit cramped.

My 27" iMac (2011) is still going strong, although sometime I wished I had took the SSD route.

Macbook Air (2013) is perfect for any uni students out there.

iPad Air and currently iPhone 5 as my mobile devices but hopefully next week I will come back with a Space Grey iPhone 6.

Not to late, i recently bought an external thunderbolt SSD and installed mavericks on it, and just use the internal disk for my home folder... amazing, it was like buying a new machine... (16 gig RAM does also help)
much cheaper than buying a new machine and puts off a new machine quite a few year i hope

Do not make it a habit keeping a beverage cup near anything Apple. Be warned #the spill moment.

I did something similar. Like you said, it is like having a new machine.

This is my ageing setup for 6 years and i've slowly diverged away from Apple

My iMac died - replaced with 2012 Macbook Pro
Cinema display died - replaced with Samsung led monitor
Apple wireless mouse died - replaced with a Razer mouse
Apple wireless keyboard died - replaced with Apple wired keyboard
iPhone 5 died - replaced with Xperia Z2

Not much apple left :(

amazing keyboard lol

^_^ There are a few things I dislike about it, one of the big glaring ones being that Corsair won't make a Mac version of the config tool, so even if it'd look ok in a Mac setup, you will have to program it on a Windows machine. It's wired, and uses 2 USB ports, but doesn't have a USB port on the keyboard itself. The finish on mine also has spots where it feels rough if you run your finger along it, and that includes the bottom edge of the last row of keys. :\

However, they did tone down a bit on this one, the 'gaming' keys are gone and the spacebar is a normal spacebar without funky texture like the other K70s. I dunno, there's a lot to like about it.

One thing I'm pleased with, is it feels like it was worth the money otherwise. The keys are nice, and the unit is really solid! It's like a giant apple aluminum keyboard. There's still some growing pains with the software but it's been fairly solid for me so far.

I really like the colour of your leds. Can you share where you got them from?

Actually, it is the Dioder LED strip set from IKEA ;)
There is also a Philips HUE strip behind the desk, which is not activated on the picture.
