Our little corner.
Ken has a laptop. I have a desk top computer.
Ken don't find it necessary to buy a computer table because he can just open his laptop and use it anywhere he pleases. In fact, whenever I use it, I just sit on a reclining chair and put it in my lap and tinker away or sit cross legged on the bed while playing MW.
But I do need to use my computer because he hates it when I sign off and forgot to put his account back on. So we decided to buy a computer table for my computer.
If you think that a computer desk is a simple thing to purchase, then let me tell you it's NOT!
Ok, I thought I only need a flat surface where I can put my computer on. A simple table would be fine because my computer has flat screen with wireless keyboard and mouse. No box.
But no no! Ken thought otherwise.
He said a good table should last at least several years, so if I picked the wrong one, I'll be sitting at my mistake for a long time. He said an expensive desk may be worth the extra cost if it will last a long time and provides ample space for everything I need.
So last Saturday we went to the city to find a good desk. He said if we can't find anything there we can ask someone to build one for us.
So search we did. We went from store to store and the two main types of computer table that we found in stores are wooden desks and metal/glass desks. They all come in a variety of shapes and styles and every one is unique and can be used for a wide range of purposes.
Actually making the decision as to whether to opt for a wooden computer desk or a metal computer desk was easy. Before we went hunting for that one table, we are in the consensus to go for the wooden one because it blended well with the decor and colour scheme of the room where we wanted it.
But of course, fine wooden computer desks are naturally much more expensive than basic metal ones, but we think the price is worth it considering the fact that we are adding it to the furniture and decoration of the living room as well as being used as an office space where Ken can do his paper works.
When it was delivered today and seeing how it transformed the room, we knew we made the right choice.
