Im looking for a new desk to go along with the new MBP that will eventually be released.

Im looking for a "modern" looking desk, and it must have a few drawers (my current desk has non and there is crap all over).

My setup will be the MBP paired with a 24 inch Apple ADC display, and a printer. So there must be enough space to fit all this.

This is what I have found so far

You guys have any other ideas and/or what are you using for your current setup?

it looks like a pretty good deal for $500. I am using a custom built 3' deep and 8' long desk to hold all my crap, because i couldn't find one anywhere that was 8 feet long at the store.

If you aren't looking to break the bank, I suggest heading to your local thrift store. I recently went and found a nice black, wooden desk for $75. I got to the checkout desk and got the price down to $30. When I got home I cleaned it off and I was set to go!

$500 on a bulky, wooden desk?

places like office max/depot have a variety of nice, glass-topped L-shaped desks for like $100

which you can even disassemble and repackage in case you ever wanna move to a new place. not to mention all the extra leg room and more visual openness they provide over something like the one you posted.

example: http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/850885/Realspace-Mezza-L-Shaped-Glass-Computer/
(much cheaper in an actual store - i've looked)

but hey, whatever floats your boat.

I use a pair of 2-drawer filing cabinets spanned by a slab of wood or particle board (the size depends on how much space you need). Very portable.

I have the BDi sequel desk, return and 3 drawers cabinet! It’s designed from Cinema display as the cable is short.

The best part of this desk is all the cables are concealed nicely!

Not cheap. But the design is timeless. It goes on sales once in a while, normally end of Oct, early November.

If you want the main desk, the return, and a file cabinet it seems to be around $2500


If you just wanted the main desk its about $1000 or $700-800 if you opt for the smaller piece of the L shape.

I have a beautiful sturdy wooden antique coffee table - it's very aged looking and I have to say, my MBP really looks pretty stunning sitting on it.... now obviously it won't look great on a 1970s particle board dark-wood paneled desk, but there's something about Mac products on antique furniture that seems very cool to me.
