PC or Laptop - A laptop does not require a desk with too many slots. A simple flat top desk is sufficient for the purpose. However a desktop computer requires proper slots in the desk to accommodate all the computer parts. Make sure the desk can accommodate additional computer accessories like printer. Less space is needed for an all-in-one printer but more space is needed if the printer and scanner are two separate units. If you use a landline phone or fax machine then the desk should have the space or slot for such a device.
Desks to be seen from all angles: as mentioned above some desks were always designed to stand against a wall. The original cabinet makers therefore spent less time finishing the rear elevation of the desk sometimes even leaving it with relatively unfinished timbers. Other desks were however always designed to make an impression on anyone entering a room and facing the person sitting behind the desk. In this instance the "rear" of the desks would be highly polished panelled and often decorated or carved. Partners’ Desks also serve this purpose in offering an interesting and usable rear facade.
Size: Does it fit the room? Can you access the desk and other parts of the room? Is it a comfortable height (small adjustments can be made - but only small changes)? Kneehole height and width? Check the depth of the desk so that the work surface can actually be reached?
Sauder - Makes desks that are easy to assemble at home and are often found in stores like Wal-Mart and Office Depot. Their desks are usually made from fiber board but their high end Palladia Collection can be very sturdy and quite attractive.
Desks with Superstructure: very popular in Victorian times and earlier. These desks - which take many forms Dickens desks bankers desks roll top desks Carlton House Desks etc - have a raised structure at the back of the desk with drawers small cupboards or pigeon holes for stationery. Many of these desks were designed to stand against a wall and have a relatively plain or even unfinished rear elevation. Some desks have flat writing surfaces some have raised writing slopes with storage underneath - those with the slope are becoming popular again since the slope provides an ideal "work station" for a laptop computer.
