    Desktop PC on the desk?

    I saw a few pictures today ont he BF3 batlog of people having their desktop actually on their desktop and it go t me wondering is it common and how many of us at PSU do the same?

    My desk is too small but even if it was alot wider I wouldn't do it, it somehow makes me feel cramped and confined.
    In the pics I saw the PC is nearly always on the right side where their mouse is coupled with a tiny mouse mat, now personally I want alot of space for my mouse so I can move freely.

    Thesedays cases can be huge, mine is as follows which is considered midi tower.

    (W) 210 x (H) 415.5 x (D) 505.0 mm
    (W) 8.3 x (H) 17.8 x (D) 19.9 inch

    Having something that large right next to me doesnt feel right to me.

    My mouse mat is wide as my case is high.

    lol my Antec 1200 case is far too big to be on the Desktop hell I don't even have a PC desk my PC is in my living room about 2 foot from the sofa with my monitor on and old portable TV stand as it's the perfect height for it tbh you only ever see that done in Offices these days.

    My friend dose that. I find it strange too. For me it's always been and will always be under the desk. Above is for the screen and 'work materials' (ie food books just non cluttered feel)

    Maybe I'll do that when I have some money to throw away. Looks pretty awesome.
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.
