    Austin: "Did you learn how to elegantly capture the chair building process" Ken: "No" Ken: [elegantly captures the chair building process anyways]

    Austin and Linus both do a video on the same stuff at the same time, however I think Austin's is the winner. Less chaotic, more chill, nicer shooting too.

      If you slow it down, you can clearly see Austins cropped hand, not a perfect edit, but enough to fool the general audience :)

    bit of a hack for IKEA desks, look into countertops. They are the same price and size as desk/tabletops but will be solid the whole way through at prices where tables/desks will use the honeycomb cardboard throughout most of it. It'll be a lot heavier, but holds up better and, as a bonus, will usually be easier to clean.

    • Useless
      Useless

      @Snap it’s not ‘bad’ it’s just not as durable as real wood alternatives and it won’t be as easy to clean as real wood but if your on a tight budget and those things don’t matter to you you’ll be fine

      @Useless wait it is bad? I will buy it soon I don’t want to make any mistakes

      @Tetra Sky Was it the Gerton? That was such a good option for the price, but they either discontinued it or almost never restock it in the US.

      i got a beech tabletop at ikea. It's filled up all the way through and was only a bit over $100 CAD

    With all the videos on this ROG collab, my desire has grown from just the pillow to include the peg board, cabinet, and the standing desk. Wish you had commented on how noisy the motor is, though. IMO that's a make or break for a lot of standing desks. I'm sure I'm not the only one who prefer quietness over speed.

    IKEA furniture is amazing. Convenient, setup is clear and a shopping experience like no other.

    This video is SOO on time because the other day I just saw all of this stuff and didn't know it was a ROG collaboration but definitely felt it cuz of the iconic ROG styling on everything

    How stable is the desk? What maximum capacity is it specified for? Information quite hard to come by right now, it seemed. Somehow cannot find it on their website. I might be stupid though xD

    Damn I wish so badly I had a set up like this, all I have is an old Xbox, a desk I found on the road for free, and an old Samsung tv under a loft bed

    I Luke new desk and pc but personally I think it would of been nice to c Austin build the pc and along the mention the parts used for that, but the ultimate build I would of like to seen while doing the gaming setup is building up the studio with everyone that would of been mad.

    Yes, you needed a new studio. The old studio wasn’t exiting enough in my opinion. Mystery tech felt too processed in that studio, I think

    I love the simple, clean look of IKEA products; BUT after trying to assemble a glass-topped coffee table with miss aligned holes, I have sworn never to buy anything not already put together from IKEA. I almost went to the booby hatch and had to take the whole mess to the dump! Beware!!!
