New computer desk - suggestions
I am looking to find a new computer desk/office desk so I thought I would ask if anyone had seen any nice ones or had any recommendations.
My current one is old and was dirt cheap and I am finding its lack of space a problem. A corner unit is an option but I ideally need it to be large.

This one appears to be a newer version of my own: MICKE Corner workstation - black-brown/white - IKEA
Very spacious, plenty of shelving, built in whiteboard, very sturdy. Bit on the expensive side but it'll last!
EDIT: although mine doesn't have that random, flimsy looking metal leg, it's solid wood all round...

IKEA Do a nice corner unit here: MICKE Corner workstation - black-brown/white - IKEA
You could get a cheaper table to go along side it as well perhaps?

Homebase have this corner unit which looks quite good: Corner Desk - Oak Finish from Homebase.co.uk

Have a search for some second hand office furniture places, there are some real bargains at times and it tends to be better quality than the home office furniture.

I got a 6 person glass dinning table. Works a treat.

I think that couple of desks are probably a bit small. I have 24" and 23" monitors so they would probably struggle to fit.

TORSBY Dining table - chrome-plated/glass white - IKEA
dual monitors, multifunction, s&s steelpad, not much space left

I got one of GALANT Corner desk left - birch veneer, T-leg - IKEA
Large enough for 3 24" monitors, 2 large speakers, amp, 3 desktop computers.
Height is only really adjustable when empty, and you have to spend a while getting all 3 legs the same.
It's been great, had it a year or 2 now

I can keep an eye on the skip outside the office here. They often bin old (but perfectly serviceable) desks for no apparent reason and they are BIG. Mind you, the fuel costs from here to Aberdeen largely negates that. Sorry, bad plan.
