I don't have a real computer desk, other than an old drop-lid secretary desk, which is next to my front door and I use it as a landing place for putting mail/keys/etc. when I get home. With my MBP I've just moved it around to wherever I am in my apartment, usually between the coffee table, dining table, or the shelves/counters that I have in my open-plan kitchen/living room. Since the MBP died recently I've been looking at a 27" iMac to replace it, since my needs have changed since I bought the laptop in 2011 and I really only use my computer at home, and I don't like Apple's current portable offerings that much. I work on it less than I used to but sometimes do some translation/editing work with it, I don't have a TV or stereo so I use it most frequently for streaming video, listening to music, and general day-to-day internet use. I also use it for storing/occasionally editing photos, and it's entirely possible I might get back into some video production with it at some point. I was toying with the idea of moving/getting rid of the shelves in my living room and wall mounting the iMac, but I understand that once you order it that way it's pretty much how it's gonna be. I also rent and while my landlord would probably be ok with me putting holes in the wall, I can't easily get rid of any furniture without his permission since I'm renting a furnished apartment and most of it is his. It also would be inconvenient to have it permanently fixed to the wall in one place. I've been considering something like a cart (maybe a bit nicer-looking than the ikea one below) so I could move it closer to the sofa sometimes, and was just wondering if anyone here has done something like that with an iMac, though most likely in an academic or office setting? Obviously I'd want to secure it to the cart somehow, and then I'm also worried about it being top-heavy and getting killed by (or killing) my two crazy adolescent cats. Where have you placed your iMac, for those of you who can't/don't use a normal computer desk?
