Fair enough, I just think they maximize desk space and are convenient if you have 2 computers (say a desktop and a laptop). Just my suggestion though, I know they aren't for everyone.

My desk is as follows:
one hollow core plain door from Lowes (basically a lightweight reinforced plank that come in many sizes ) which is held up by two wide pedestals made out of octagonal 4x4s resting on some shaped 4x6s

Stain looks a lot nicer... in almost every scenario and it's what I would go with in your case.
Good luck
