I need a new desk

Posted 26 July 2010 - 02:36 PM

So my good ole' particle board desk finally broke after MANY years of heavy use. So I'm in the market for a new one.

Needs to be an L shape desk with dimensions of about 6'x6' (+/- a few inches)

Would like a hutch.

Less than $1k

Suggestions? I've got my eye on this one: http://www.everythin...l#axzz0upJiPD6J

My wife and I are moving into our new 5th Wheel for full-time (24/7/365) lifestyle.
That means my entire household of furniture is about to go up for sale.
I have a large, high-quality system (about $1500) that I brought back from Australia that you could have for $500 if you don't mind picking it up in Arizona.
It's really two large 'L' systems that I put together to make a giant 'J' shape. (credenza, credenza, L, L)
But as they are separate you can place them as you want. Make a big 'U' for example: Credenza, L, L, Credenza.

They are great pieces in great shape, just too much space and weight for the 5th wheel.

2 x credenza w/2 drawers and large file drawer
2 x Corner 'L' desk with PC section and lower shelf

I will also be putting up for sale a Samsung CLP510 duplexing laser with 2 refillable cartridges for each color.
And possibly my spare development PC with 8 head video card (after I verify its functionality)
(I'll put up a post when they are ready, so let's not everyone hammer me with cost questions just yet :D )

Well, what do you have to store in the desk, how many computers, how many monitors, what do you have to have room for, etc?

Oh please tell us you don't really spend all day on that laptop coding.
I would be a hunchback. It's just not possible to have the keyboard at the correct height while at the same time having the monitor at eye level. Unless you are laying on our back in bed with the laptop on your {bent} legs.

Please tell us this is like your daughter's websurf and picture doodle laptop.

Assuming you've already got everything else (speakers, cable management, UPS, etc), this is the simplest most functional option I could find. The screen mount thing is just an easter egg I found that looked like it would kick ****ing ass.

Hexa mount. I love it. But doesn't hex mean 8? It has 6 monitor mounts.

No, a hexagon has 6 side, an 8 sided figure would be an octagon. Durr.

This is why I ask questions, not make statements (that show I'm brain dead before Starbucks).

This is too late and probably way out of the price range given, but it's so awesome I had to share it:
