    I just moved from home to a new apartment. I still haven't gotten a new desk for my PC and well... it's not an ideal set up.

    I might be a bit weird, but that looks awfully comfy. I like being on the floor though :p

    Crouton!! You're facing the wrong way :p
    You gotta lean forwards and get a cushion or something - treat it like a console ;)

    That said I'm worried about your computer - its a bit square!

    My computer is awesome. It's one of the cube-style cases. Uber sexy mind you. Emelie, it may look comfortable but no matter WHICH way you sit, after about 30 minutes you will have back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, leg pain etc. Not fun. I hope I can get a desk soon.

    Not ideal, but it has potential. Rotate the computer 90 degrees counter-clockwise and the recliner 90 degrees clockwise, then sit in the recliner with the keyboard on your lap. Depending on how much room you have on that side, you might be better off either switching them or moving the chair to where the pillow is now.

    I got stuck in the same situation once, when my desk accidentally wound up in storage. I put the monitor on the tower, set the mouse on an old stool and leaned back in my comfy office chair. I liked it so much that I got rid of the desk. The chair and the computer have gone the way of all flesh, so now I'm sitting at one end of my couch with my back resting on one of the well-padded arms, with my keyboard on my lap, monitor and mouse off to one side. The mouse is on the same old stool.

    My dream office has a morris chair.

    From personal experience.... keyboard on lap translates into sore right shoulder! Love the picture though.... reminds me of my first apartment! Congrats on the new space. You and PK too...exciting times!

    That's not a recliner, but a three seater couch haha. It can't be rotated that way or it won't be facing the TV and my roommate will kill me.

    Awesome setup, Crouton ^^ Having a running PC is much, MUCH more important than having a desk to have it stand on ;)

    What is that case? It looks like one of those Origen cases, but I don't really recognise it?
