None in the Gatwick store, and still full price from their instore order catalogue.

Anyone know of a store in the South East where this is available?

Try the customer services desk in your local store, they can check availability for you.

None left just called, Long Eaton branch wants to know where these are?

It never fails to baffle me why people WANT to bang their ankles on a shelf.

hot deal

And having their arm constantly extended to use the mouse, as well as both arms hovering when typing.

I've just built it without the bottom shelf so that a chair can be put under the desk...seems sturdy enough...for now!...lol.

this is against all laws of ergonomics

They were half way down the aisle opposite the fitness section. The aisle before the one with the scanner cos I got an assitant to scan the other PC desk they had (wooden) but it was £20 so went for this instead. Hope this helps!

The bottom shelf sits on 2 cylindrical bars. All I did was not fit one of the bars. The single bar should be strong enough to stop the sides from splaying. And I've also not bothered fitting the desktop extension shelf as I've put it between 2 drawer chests.

I hate these "computer desks".

They are uncomfortable and unergonomic. They made sense back in the days of CRTs when you couldn't fit the keyboard on the desk, but now there are just bloody ridiculous.

Quoted for truth.

These are a terrible design, and a relic from the days of old - steer well clear !

Am I missing something? This is a computer desk not a design piece. It has a surface area to put your PC, monitor, keyboard and mouse. If you really want to, you can even put a flat screen, keyboard and mouse on the top shelf and use the "keyboard" shelf for something else, eg. hard drives, routers etc. It certainly beats putting your pc on a kitchen table or a chest of drawers etc as I have seen in many houses.

In terms of ergonomics, I would say it would be better to have a decent chair and to have the correct posture if you're really concerned about that sort of thing. Personally, in normal circumstances I wouldn't have bought this desk, but, and it's a big BUT, it was £7!!! I for one, am quite pleased with it and my son is even more pleased with it.

You are entitled to your opinion and it is obviously not to your taste but I'm sure there are many people who would prefer this to a plank of wood especially as it costs a little more than that piece of wood! (Apologies for the rant if it comes across that way, but we all have the right to different opinions. It's called human nature).

Amen to that! Who gives a damn about egonomics when it costs just £7!

Wish I could get one for that price...
