Quick Hit: Datorbox is the gaming PC you won't be ashamed to have in your living room

If you're looking for a machine to play the latest, most graphically intensive, games without having to make any compromises - dedicated gaming computers are the ultimate machines for the task. There's only one problem, most of them look extraterrestrial, like they're designed for a teenage boy's bedroom.

Enter the handsome Datorbox, a compact gaming system enclosed in a handcrafted wooden case.

This would look right at home in any man cave, and, despite the small form factor, still delivers monster performance, supporting 4K video and VR gaming. 

We know what you're thinking - gaming machines get hot - and heat and wood aren't a great combination, but the wooden casing is designed for optimised airflow. This means it won't spontaneously burst into flames and allows the machine to run quietly.
