Since I'm on an Ikea kick with the Benno faux-mount TV stand, I thought I'd bring you another useful piece of home tech.

The Mikael desk would fit right into my place — I still love the convenience of my Dave stand, but sometimes I really get more done sitting at a desk.

And though the pic shows how great the Mikael is for a desktop computer, I'd use it for my laptop, and totally increase the usefulness — when I'm not laptopping, I can do my bills there or use it for my sewing machine!

And seriously — 40 bucks?! Great for a small apartment, dorm, or small budget. In red, birch, pink, blue, white, and dark brown.
