iSkelter has released several TechDesks that are designed specifically for Apple devices with Mac air vents and built-in slots for holding the iPhone and the iPad, and as of today, the company's latest desk, the LiftPro, is available for pre-order on Indiegogo.

The LiftPro is an electric desk that can be adjusted to several different heights suitable for sitting or standing, and like all of iSkelter's desks, it comes with built-in organizational components. There are display docks for the iPhone and the iPad, along with recessed felt trays for holding accessories, a stainless steel drink holder, and a built-in mousepad that sits flush against the surface of the desk.

Available in natural or hazelnut finishes, the bamboo desk can be customized with one of three leg colors: black, white, or gray. All of the available features are optional and can be chosen at the time of purchase. According to iSkelter, the LiftPro can support up to 355 pounds and its legs have been tested more than 10,000 times. It comes with a 7-year all-inclusive warranty that covers the motor, frame, and all electronics.

LiftPro includes four preset keys for adjusting the desk to different heights (between 24.5 and 49.5 inches) in just a few seconds with the press of a button. Each position is fully customizable and can be set for each user's preferred sitting and standing heights.


The built-in docks are designed to put the iPhone and the iPad in clear view while sitting at the desk and they also hide unsightly cables. The recessed drink holder sits towards the side of the desk to avoid contact with a Mac, and the lined storage trays at the back of the desk can hold pens, coins, and other small items. Mac cables can also be hidden out of sight, and the desk ships with three cord clips for cable management.

There are a limited number of LiftPro desks available for purchase for $899 on Indiegogo, with prices that go up to $1,099 after early bird purchases have sold out. Desks will begin shipping out to customers in August of 2015, and will have a future retail price of $1,499.

Tacky cup holders, docks, and accessory trays notwithstanding, which are optional, it's not a bad looking desk. Having said that, I am not sure if electronically adjustable legs is worth $400+ premium over otherwise fairly similar (although not hardwood) IKEA Bekant desk (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S19022530/#/S49022524).

And considering it's electric, would it kill to provide a built-in power strip or at least USB charging ports?

FYI, I personally prefer and use Jarvis desk (http://www.ergodepot.com/Jarvis_Desk_p/jrv.htm) which starts at $680 and includes electrical legs.

Imagine if this thing came out 5 years ago with 30 pin connector docks..... Because I totally want to upgrade my $400 desk when the next iDevice connection standard comes out

Really—a built-in mousepad? That would drive me mad. What's the point of something like that? It looks the same but you can adjust it and replace it when it wears out. Personally I usually have mine at a bit of a diagonal in relation to the rest of the desk. I guess if you're into fixed positions for everything you own then this is the desk for you. Count me out!

See that's exactly the thing. I could probably use the cup holder if it's big enough (my coffee cup is GIANT and won't fit in most cup holders). I do have an iPhone and an iPad so I guess I could use two of the slots, but honestly I got the Bekant sit/stand desk a few months ago and it's a really really solid desk and for the price of this desk I could buy almost 3 Bekants

I love how they found room to house a stapler and give it it's own cut-out section.

A digital office totally can't survive without staples. ;)
