Smart Office Not So Damned Smart?

You know that trend a while back towards 'smart offices'? I think that's what it was called -- you know, when nobody has their own desk, and they just snag their laptop and go sit anywhere and somehow they are magically more creative and productive as a result? I'm having trouble Googling up trip reports: can you help me out with links to stories and research about experiences in implementing it (or your own personal experience)? [more inside]

Using birch Ikea dining tables as desks

My partner and I will probably soon be using Ikea's Björkudden dining tables as desks. They're made of solid birch and covered in a polyurethane/acrylic lacquer. Is this a good idea? [more inside]

OneLessDesk-like desk... for less?

I really love the look and idea of OneLessDesk but the price ($750 with shipping) kills it. Anyone have any recommendations on similar desk ideas?

How should I set up our new office?

The company I work for is probably moving away from our parent company into a 3400 sq. ft. building of our own. I have the task (opportunity) to suggest how we can set up this office for our 31 people. The question is, is there a non-traditional option that is better than the standard cube farm, but is still inexpensive and effective? [more inside]

Ikea Desks

I've got a chance to buy an Ikea Jerker computer desk locally for a good price (the closest Ikea store is in Houston, we're in Austin). How sturdy are they? I'm used to early-80s solid-steel welded Steelcase desks, and am wondering if the Jerker will be solid enough for a 19" monitor and Mac G4 tower. [more inside]

Looking for Very Sturdy Desk with Few/No Drawers, Under $200

I've got a rather old and decrepit office-surplus Steelcase desk in my "home office" right now, and am looking for something newer that doesn't have drawers for me to fill up with crud.

Needs to be VERY sturdy (as I may have 2 or 3 large monitors on it at any time) and not wobbly or flimsy at all. I've looked at the IKEA "Jerker" desk, but the closest IKEA is in Houston (I'm in Austin) and buying one mail-order would be prohibitive.

Suggestions? Budget is $200 max.
