LAS VEGAS—If you have $ 5,000 you can own a supercharged Windows 10 workstation.

CES 2019 Bug ArtThe Cemtrex SmartDesk contains three touch-screen monitors, sensors that can let you control your PC with hand gestures, and a wireless phone charger that sits on the side.

We saw the workstation here at CES. It comes integrated with a keyboard, trackpad, document scanner, speakerS, and a web camera, all in a polished frame that’s accessible whether you’re sitting or standing.

US-based Cemtrex says the 120-pound desk is the most advanced workstation on the market. However, the PC running inside isn’t anything to brag about it. According to the spec sheet, the system uses an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor, with either a GTX 1050 graphics card or GTX 1060, and 16GB or 32GB of RAM. In other words, nothing really overpowered.

The desk’s claim to fame is how well its features have been integrated. You don’t have to worry about cable management. Just plug in the system and get to work.

“This is everything, all-in-one,” Cemtrex marketing manager Jonathan Rudolph told PCMag. “And it’s connected all by one wire.”

Owners of the SmartDesk don’t even have to use the trackpad. They can gesture with their hands to scroll through a webpage or zoom in. An integrated Leap Motion gesture controller on the desk will read the motions and translate them into commands.

Cemtrex began shipping the SmartDesk this month. You can order it now on the company’s website starting at $ 4,899, going up to $ 5,699. If you do buy one, Cemtrex will send a team to install the desk.

The company is partly marketing the product to company executives. Hotels have also begun adopting the desks for business travelers. The plan is to continually update the SmartDesk model every two to three years with cutting-edge features and newer PC tech. Existing customers can then exchange their old system to help pay for an updated model.
