Questions on the Ikea Linnmon Table top

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I was wondering:

- Is the table wide enough to hold the monitor and keyboard without being to close? If not, does Ikea have a keyboard tray or I should improvise or something?

-I was looking through some setups here and found something that I really liked. Unfortunately, the member that posted that photo hasn't logged in for years so I'll ask here. In the photo below, does anyone know where I can get that cabinet on the left? I couldn't find it on the Ikea website.



That's all for now I guess. Thanks for any advice given.

The long one (I forget the length,(maybe 8 ft?) but it's about 24" wide) needs a center support. I was going to buy that one, but I became discouraged for the lack of width and that it needed a center support if you were going to put a computer on it. Keep in mind that these table tops are basically cardboard. The innards are honeycomb cardboard-like material and the top appears to be a dense cardboard-like material, and I will assume there is a block of MDF where the legs go.

I ended up getting the one that is a bit shorter...about 5 ft, and its about 30" wide. If you need more space, get 2 of them.

The Alex drawers will work as legs.

Thanks for the info.

I was thinking of just getting the shorter one and place the computer on top of one of the Alex drawers. Still deciding on what type of system but will either be a micro-ATX or mini-ITX case. Is the shorter one though wide enough to use without a separate keyboard tray or will it be too close to the eyes?

Also, do you happen to know that "cubicle" like thing on the left?

Here's mine with my 27" Acer monitor (144hz 1440p IPS Gsync), H440 tower, and G710+ keyboard with Alex drawer.

I'm now seriously considering the Linnmon corner table top along with the Alex drawer but will keep the drawers separate.

Anyone know what color is good and what legs to get?

Is the desk a good viewing distance without a keyboard tray?

Anyone?

The desk is about 30" deep. I have plenty of room and I think the distance is perfectly fine.

I got the standard legs that are like $4 each. Works fine. They are the same height as the Alex drawer. The $4 legs can be adjusted a little bit for height/uneven surface, but not a lot.

The depth of the desk/table varies depending on what width you go for.

We went for the 200cm wide desk, but its only 60cm deep (24 inches), if it wasn't for the specific width requirement I would have much rather bought the 150cm*75cm one as the depth is somewhat of an issue.

My keyboard needs to sit right next to the monitor stand, and then I still find that there isn't enough wrist support.
