Perhaps but does it look as beautiful as this


Admittedly aluminium is one of those materials that you have to see in person to appreciate

I am all about looks lol performance is second to aesthetics shallow I know but hey atleast i look good whilst doing it . Hence why I bought a keyboard made from a block of aluminium that is then laser cut and a monitor that is available on a standard stand but I bought the one that comes with a £300 premium for aluminium frame plus my lian li case which is awesome quality, style and performance but at a premium. I have a deathadder mouse which is the one part of my computer visible that doesn't have some patch of aluminium on it lol

Yeah it would but since I love brushed aluminium I couldn't decide between the two materials plus for carbon fibre to be rigid it needs to be mounted on something or cast with alot of plastic overlay not the pure material. The benefit is that if I get attacked by terroists I coul use my mouse mat as body armour to defend my home
