Great System!

 

Just got this today. Newegg said 3 day shipping but I somehow got mine in 2 days! I'm already in love with it.

Looks awesome. Very Shiny. Curved bottom makes it easy to pick up. Keyboard is very well spaced apart

Low pegs on the bottom make it close to the table. May need to raise it off the table
