There is nothing awesome about this design but it does look way better than most of the desktop out there. The dotted look in the front gives it a premium look. There are a number of ports and jacks in the front that makes reaching them a piece of cake.
You can find the rest of them at the back side. With dimension fo 14.88 x 6.60 x 14.33 inches, it is going to take up some space in your room. It weighs around 10.8 pounds, so be sure not to move that thing often.
