Jerker Notes

Ikea's Jerker computer desk really is a lovely piece of design. For my needs, it's easily as customizable as an Anthro desk without the rather outlandish price tag. Anthro does make some great stuff, but for my needs it's well above what I'd consider paying (even with the lifetime warranty considered). Perhaps if I ever started raking in the big dough I'd reconsider, but at present the under $200 that have outfitted this desk is far more than satisfactory. (For comparison, a base unit from Anthro to compare with the way I've configured my base Jerker is $949 -- and it's both 5 inches lower than my $129 Ikea desk and short a shelf.) Tip for the evening: a 12" Apple notebook will fit perfectly in one of the Jerker magazine holders. So if you're the owner of a 12" iBook or 12" PowerBook and a Jerker desk, shell out the $10 for the magazine/CD holder set and have a handy place to store your 'Book without taking up desk or shelf space. Heck, you can even leave the power adapter connected so it's charging and ready to go. For extra protection, grab a RadTech PowerSleevz to pad your laptop in its new nest and prevent scratching.
