    Looks like Acer is jacking the price of this to $30,000.. Rip Off.. There are many companies now building as good or better motorized zero gravity workstations for less and you can buy your own monitors , computer and components and still be around $10,000 , if not less..
    BTW, why do you want this? As a software developer who has been working 60-80 hr work weeks for almost 17 years and now has degenerative discs and all type of nerve/joint issues, it is because it is the healthiest way to use a computer and these workstations will extend way beyond gaming. The zero gravity setup reduces stress off of your nerves and spine significantly and it aligns your body properly, as well as the monitor adjustment positions your head perfectly. To be honest, this is how computers should have been used from day one.. Take it from a disabled software guy who has suffered from sitting and even standing for too many hours at computer desks. There is a science behind this and a company named ErgoQuest actually invented the first of its kind workstation. It was originally used for people who were in car accidents, disabilities or had other type of health/joint issues to enable them to work longer hours again.

    "what more could you ask for"
    somewhere to clamp a racing wheel. that keyboard shelf doesn't look sturdy enough for that. (its also too close but I assume you can adjust that) is the foot shelf adjustable in relation to the seat? if not that's another con for racing setups
    I'd also want adjustable shelves on both arm wrests to mount your hotas.
    it seems a bit weird that they build a "gaming cockpit" and there doesn't appear to be any way to attach the most common cockpit peripherals (there's hardly room to hang a headset :)
    the whole thing just looks a little cramped unless all you plan to do is play with a console controller.

    It comes with petals but not a steering wheel and shifter. Also seems like a fire hazard or just a hazard in general. Can you get out of it easily if the power were to go out? What if that computer caught on fired right next to you..?

    It is good...
    It is good...
    But far from perfection!
    It doesn't have a fridge !
    Also it should have a toilet built in!
    You can't pause the game in the middle of the action just because you have to pee.
