A new computer desk I found these pics I thought some on here maybe interested in:

The V1 flagship comes with integrated 5.1 sound

My personal favourite is Han Solo's desk:

Or how about some relaxing fish in you're desk:

Still haven't found myself a suitable desk though, without creating another "Spec Me" thread if anyone does have any suggestions my requirements are:

Width: up to 130 cm - Must be no larger than this!

Preferably black in colour, thanks for any suggestions

First one looks good apart from the electronic drumkit looking part which ruins it.

I agree.... it would be a little odd. Though it would be an interesting conversational piece I suppose.

The way I see it:

Hot chick: "What on Earth is that?"

Hans Solo desk owner: "Umm... yeah.. well, I can explain."

Hot chick: "Not to me, bye..."

End of conversation.

Fish tank one is cool though. If it had one with hamster 'Habitrail' type sections it'd be even better.

Make one - I'll upload pics of mine in a min.

4 x 'Vika Amon' table tops @ £13 each from Ikea.

Some bracing and screws @ approx. £4.

A curvy thing from Ikea to soften the inside corner, approx £20.

About £78. Does not come with fish, dead space-guy or drum pads. Does the job.

Got a chair from Ikea in 80s white faux leather as well. It is wipe-clean, essential for a computer-room chair.

The desks in the first post are impressive but I'm not sure I'd want any of them to use regularly, they look more as if they should be in a gallery. I think making a desk might be your best option as simpletom says.

Oh and Happy Birthday for yesterday. :)

That first desk suggests an accessory for a spin off from the Rock Band game: Rock Drummer! with wrap around 'virtual stadium-o-vision'. Now you can really 'feel it coming in the air tonight'. Oh Lord!
Please drum responsibly.
