So I'm thinking about getting one of these new desks. It's a corner desk so hopefully it will give me more space. The grey shadows in the pictures represent my two monitors. Notice they don't fit very well. It would be much better of those two supports were on the outside of the desk instead of the middle. I'm going to have to trek down to the local Ikea to see it in person... with a measuring tape.

There are some possible options. I could mount both monitors on VESA arms. They would attach to the vertical supports, wall-mount style. The problems with that plan are first that those arms are expensive. Plus I'd need an additional adapter to make my Apple Cinema display wall mountable. Looking forward, another big issue is that I eventually want to switch from a Mac Pro to an iMac, and iMacs do not have VESA mounts. And finally... the desk is likely all particle board, so I don't know how strong those vertical supports would be, they might warp and eventually break under the weight of hanging monitors.

Another option might be to customize the desk. I've got a drill, I've got glue. Thats probably all I would need to move the supports out to the side edges of the desk. We'll see...

Definitely categorizing this one in 'Strange'. I received a 'gift package' from one of the parts suppliers I use, a few weeks back. The package contained a bottle of Chardonnay, three LED flashlight/laser pointer/magnet devices, and a multi-bit toolkit. Kind of a strange and random package. What makes it even more odd is how little business I do with this company. Maybe 4 or 5 small orders a year, thats about it. They only sell used Mac laptop parts, and I just don't have THAT much need for that stuff. Oh well, lasers are cool. And I brought the wine over a friends house, they'll likely enjoy it.
