There’s portable gaming and then there’s portable gaming. If you game on the go a lot, your choice right now is pretty much limited to a gaming laptop. Granted, gaming laptops can match the performance of desktops in some cases, but comparable desktops usually outperform their laptop counterparts. unEvn wants to change the definition of portable gaming with the unEvn ONE: a portable gaming desk with a built-in computer chassis, integrated monitor mount, and an easy fold up system for ultimate portability.
Fully self-contained, the unEvn ONE portable gaming desk has a built-in mini ITX chassis for you to add a motherboard, processor, power supply, up to four SSDs, and graphics card. A pair of USB 3.1 and two 3.5mm audio jacks are on the front of the desk, while the back looks to sport six additional USB ports, a pair of Ethernet ports, HDMI, and DisplayPort connects, and more.
The unEvn ONE also includes an adjustable gas spring monitor arm, which will support a 32″ monitor, a curved front edge for added comfort, lockable drawer, mouse bungie, and a durable and impact resistant polycarbonate textured surface for optimal mouse usage. In addition, the desk features electric height adjustment from 24″ to 32″ to accommodate different chair sizes and body heights.
Now for the portable part. unEvn says the unEvn ONE folds up in about a minute. By pressing a pair of release buttons, the desk’s legs fold up inside and the desk folds in half. If you have a 25″ or smaller monitor, there is a storage compartment inside the desk where you can place it for even easier transportation. Once folded, this portable gaming desk comes in at 32″ x ” 24″ x 8″ and weighs between 25-33kg depending on your internal components. Your entire gaming setup can then be carried by using the padded shoulder straps, optional handle, or optional durable travel bag.
The unEvn ONE just hit Kickstarter and with 34 days left in the all-or-nothing campaign, the company is looking to raise US$40,000. There are a number of Super Early Bird deals left, offering up the desk at $1,249 –50% off the anticipated retail price of $2,499. Delivery is expected in October 2019.
As with any crowdfunding campaign, there is a risk supporting them. We’ve recently heard about several that we’ve written about that have failed or are having issues. Our reporting on Kickstarter campaigns does not mean we support or are affiliated with them. Support at your own risk.
