    In a gaming desk, I'd look for a slippery surface that can be used while I have a t-shirt on and my hands not sticking to the surface for easier aiming. Also adjustable height, an easy cable routing option and a flat front. The cut out on this table is a bummer for me since my arms tend to catch on the sides of those things while flicking in FPS's or while not putting the mouse where I want while playing OSU! and readjusting that on the go.

                      Most useless thing here is the 2nd dimension.If it is better suited with "gaming" then it's definitely more legit. Then what is the point of having two different variables? Using only the "Legitimacy" line would've worked too.
