          Nice segment but the thickness of that desk either means I couldn't fit the arms of my chair under it or the height of the desk is to much for a comfortable position.....Neither of which is a compromise worth making imo.

                                            It's like they're saying you have to be somehow under the influence of a certain substance to think that was a good price.
