Emperor 1510 - the workstation on steroids We were blown way by the outrageous design and outrageous price of Modern Work Environment Lab's Emperor 200 Workstation when it first surfaced back in 2009. Since then a model that incorporates many of the same features while being somewhat closer to the means of mere mortals has come on the market - the Emperor 1510. View all The Emperor 1510 has the same tilting, scorpion-like layout as its custom-built cousin, catering for up to three screens from 19-inch to 27-inch in various configurations (3 x 24-inch with a 16:9 ratio is the option on our wishlist, but note that the screens themselves, along with the computer, aren't included in the price of the 1510). The curved tubular frame is made up of Canadian steel with integrated LED lighting and an adjustable keyboard tray and leg rest.
