Look on ebay or on craigslist for the jerker. I got one, and it's the best computer desk ever.

You're lucky you cleared things up by saying computer desk.

Anyway OP, check to see if you have furniture outlet stores around you. You might be able to pick up an even nicer desk for the same price.

I can't help it if Ikea names their products with idiotic names :p

That looks like a pretty generic desk. I would guess you could get that same thing in Staples, Office Depot, Office Max or any other office supply store.

What about just getting a regular table with the folding metal legs?

http://www.staples.com/webapp/...ing+%26+Banquet+Tables

I have one and it fits a lot of stuff. My tower, two 24" monitors, speakers, and my multifinction printer. If you choose to go this route do NOT get tables made from plastic. These will sag in the middle with all that computer stuff on it.

Got a local used office furniture store (liquidator) near you?

Outside of that, I'd for the recommendation of craigslist, also.

Thrift stores never seem to turn up anything in terms of good furniture for me.

I used to use desks until I started using a table like this one.

Just go to a furniture store and buy a plain old solid wood table. You'll have plenty of room for everything.
