    This isn't your usual 'Mac Peripheral' but is probably one of the most important. I'm looking for a desk. Something very nice yet minimalistic desk for a home office setup with dual 27" monitors. Can anyone make a recommendation? I'm having a hard time finding anything that I really like.

    For minimal, look at Heckler Design One Less Desk. I have this but don't have dual monitors. It may work if you get a dual VESA mount to clamp to the desk. It's a solid desk. I can sit on it and it won't budge. Has a hidden slot for drives and cabling also.

    Heckler needs to have a 20-24" deep model....that would be a winner in my book. The 12" model is just too limiting

    Check out the "Show us your setup" thread for a little inspiration. I like to recycle items in my loft, so I went with a six foot metal prep table.

    Go to an office supply outlet (Staples, OfficeMax, OfficeDepot) and get a "conference table" with folding legs.

    30"x60" is a common size (some are 30"x72").

    Cheap, broad, flat surface to put your stuff on.

    Not the snazziest desk around, but very affordable.

    I'm a miser but like good quality. You know that no one will spend more than our federal government purchasing nice stuff then sell it cheap. Check out the GSA Auction site. I've got some real good steals here.

    Doesn't that shelf underneath get in the way?

    Really like the cable management in that one. You could hide hard drives, time capsules and all sorts of stuff in there quite easily.

    I use the Ikea "Galant" desk system.

    I have a huge L shape that is about 2m x 180cm.

    Works really well and is very solid, great for the money (approx £300)

    1. Walk into your local Ikea store.
    2. Purchase the Galant desk system.
    3. Much profit.

    How much are you willing to spend is the question.
