Buying Ikea Desk have questions

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm buying the Vika Amon Tabletop 59" and 5 of the curry legs
Says the top supports up to 110lbs, Was wondering do you think it would fatigue the desk if I put my 20 lb monitor on the desk in the middle and the Case off to the side on the right ontop of the posts?

Just looking for input, I've searched and found quite a few people have done this but I haven't seen anyone putting their PC ontop of the desk even right above the legs,

What do you guys think?

These board are 1.5 times thicker than mine and I have a massive heavy 27" Apple Cinema... weights a ton than any other plastic monitor...

You should be fine with those.

As others have said, that desk will handle that without any problems.

That desk looks sleek. Ikea usually makes a quality product for the price, and I haven't really run into any assembly issues in the past. I hope that you going to pick it up in-store, because having that table top shipped will be pricey.

post 10 of 12.

not to sound rude but that thread refers to a different brand countertop made from different materials, unless i misread something how would this help me? I know Ikea is a good company, I was just more concerned with the Amon Series countertop.

I appreciate all input, though I do not see the reason unless you are saying that the photo of yours is an Amon countertop.
Please just clear that up for me smile.gif
