    Okay, I like all Ikea's desk designs and i like but my favorite one is the JONAS series desk. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/00089262 its a little pricy though. Any suggestions for a desk like that for cheap or any suggestions on building my own desk?

    Looks good. My violin teacher has two of those I believe.

    Build your own desk?!? Have fun... a simple three-slab of wood desk is easy, but good luck with drawers and etc. I took a wood working elective a few years at my jr high school and it takes forever to make stuff like even a stool.

    I supposed it does tie in with the 'simplistic' design of Apple stuff. :D Anyways, I think for that price, it's a good quality desk.

    I dunno...I used to use a folding table from SAMS club as my computer desk. It was only $44.99 or something.

    Then I wised up and bought a real desk and spent about $450, and I'll never go back to a folding table again.

    The thing with calling a $129 desk pricey is that if you're disappointed with the desk, chances are you'll always be disappointed with it. If you bite the bullet and buy a nicer desk and spend the extra money, and you like the desk, chances are you won't mind having already spent the money.

    And coming from IKEA you probably have to put this thing together. One more thing to consider.

    Chill... I wasn't calling any of you a spammer. There was one that kept posting about Nike shoes being sold on a site like fashionbiz.com or something. I reported the guy like 3 times and I think MacRumors deleted his/her posts.

    I bought some IKEA countertop slabs and adjustable table legs. With a circular saw I cut the counter top to size, screwed in the legs, velcro-ed a couple of power strips to the under side of the counter top, and now I have a custom fitted desk for under $100... I added an ikea cable management crate to it too... holding any power bricks and excess cording. Makes for a nice clean setup...
