    For years I've dreamed for a setup like this and the technology wasn't there yet, now the problem is my pocket is not there yet.

    I hope they do this again soon, could probably be a lot better now.

    With today's laptops this would be even more efficient, we want another episode of this

    I'd like to see more of this type of diy workspace stuff

    I've always thought this was the way to go in the future. A portable ultrabook with a good CPU so when you get home you can just dock the laptop on a wide screen plus an eGPU.

    So after several months of saving, accumulating, and upgrades, I finally have a setup that uses the core principles here! I'm happy to report that this plan works on both Mac and Linux machines. The only caveat is that, because of how UNIX works, you'll have to properly eject any external hard drives before unplugging the Thunderbolt cable. My solution -- and the next iteration on my setup -- will be to set up a NAS and connect it by either high-speed USB or ethernet (depending on which one has less hiccups).

    This build is SOO smoth and silent, that you can’t even hear the speakers!

    A year or so ago I did a similar design with my my homeoffice desk (I use a thinkpad and hid the docking station plus all cables in a drawer under the table having only dual monitors and wireless mouse + keyboard on the desk). Shortly later I noticed that all the free space on my desk just invites my family to drop paperstuff there, which means it's never clean.

    I would mount the CalDigit on drawer rails, enabling easier access to the rear I/O, as well as a more secure manner of attaching it to the desk "top"

    The desk charging thing is actually pretty cool, would be very useful in certain occasions.

    Brilliant! I did a (much less amazing) solution for my wife years ago and she loves it. For us it was just a USB hub, Ethernet, and power cable snaking out to the desk and a 1080p TV on the wall as her monitor. When it's time for her next laptop, I'll probably do something similar to this. :)

    Nice setup, however for a "not-so-typical" session of extreme use on that PC, like what we all do, I would worry about the battery life for the laptop though.

    I'd love to see more of these desks, and maybe even a LTT brand of workstation desks in the future for commercial/retail buyers to purchase.
