Its actually not that bad. If you can type without looking at the keyboard its no problem at all. You just have your head slightly turned to the right and it works. If your neck does start to get tired just turn the chair a little and move the wireless keyboard and your almost dead on.

I LOVE the chair, its very comfortable and its looks great. Its a neat alternative to having that traditional "office chair" look. And yes, its from Ikea.

I'm just giving you crap. I actually have less than you do. I only received coins after my deployments and not for anything else in between those time periods.

Yea, its the Mikie. Its probably big enough for the 27" but you would have to set it like mine (in the corner facing you). If you put it right in front of you it might seem overwhelming. But I love the desk, its very sturdy and well put together. However it took me a while to put it together.

Thought I'd ask this question here since I've seen some people with it. How do I install LEDs under my desk? I'm familiar with car LEDs and installs like that but that's much different. I haven't been able to find an led strip that plugs into the wall and I'm not sure how it can be done with car type strips. Any links or help would be great!

For example http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004Y9YIU6?ie=UTF8&force-full-site=1&ref_=aw_bottom_links how could I use these in my house

If you have a Fry's nearby they carry expandable LED kits with remote color changing. Also, the Ikea Dioders have the same features and seem a little brighter. I think both are around $40 a set.

I just went to a regular lamp store, asked for a LED stripe (blue in my case as you can see in the picture in the other page) and a transformer because of the voltage.

Then you just stick that into the back of your desk lol

That's because you're buying a massive quantity. For example, I bought a stripe of 50cm long for my desk and it's enough.

I think you could get it cheaper at a chinnese store or something like that.

It's actually just a table I built. I purchased the surface in a hardware store and got the legs in a furniture store. Nothing fancy.
