I’m pretty tall — 6 ft 4 inches (193cm) when I’m not stooping. I’d been wanting to try a switch to a standing desk for a while, and a recent move to New York meant I needed a new desk anyway, so it was the perfect opportunity. I had a few requirements for my new office-space:
- Must be able to support an Apple Thunderbolt Display (23.5 lbs or 10.8 kg)
- Need some space (didn’t have a specific lower bound, but saw a bunch that were too small)
- Adjustable workspace height, of primary concern being that I could put the main one at (my personally determined height of) 47 inches (119 cm)
- Storage space for random “desk stuff” that I’d prefer wasn’t on my actual desk, but would like nearby.
- Not crazy expensive.
