Looks like it could be expensive to repair. Speaking from experience of custom desk solutions I would investigate every little penny of repairs and parts. My forecast predicts that I am going to be bankrupt paying for repairs to mine as everything is custom and lots of bits seem to cost quite a bit.
Although from your photo it appears it will take a standard Tower PC which is good. I'd check the TFT mounting system if its got any point of custom part then run a mile, no matter how hard they are the kids WILL break them. I feel that you cannot beat a good worktop install with decent CPU hangers and standard VESA mounts bolted to it.

Only experience I had was getting a quote out of them. In that respect they were very responsive and seemed quite keen. Not surprising given the quote they came back with which was a tad pricey for us.
Worked out at almost 700 quid per desk position, including the monitor stand and keyboard mount shown in the pic, and the under-desk PC mount (Individually they were quoted at 100+VAT each)
Electrics and network cabling were in addition to this quote!
That said, for 700 per desk you could easily get a custom fit solution. If you looked around you could probably get a proper chippie in and deck out your ICT suite in solid oak or walnut!

I've always been sceptical about how long the gas lift and mount would last on these monitors - pushing down on the monitors doesn't sound like a clever idea with kids.
Have you looked at http://www.isisconcepts.co.uk/educat...ns/ict/m1.html from Isis Concepts (an EduGeek sponsor)?
