Computer desks & prices

Prices range from low to high depending on quality, size and the material it's made out of. If you're looking for a cheap desk, look at small and simple desks made out of plastic or desks you assemble yourself with instructions that are made from metal or cheap wood. Sometimes cheaper desks are appropriate, especially for smaller areas, students or someone starting out, but remember to pay close attention to the construction of the desk as some hardware that is cheap, may cause desk drawers to stick, or the construction of the desk to be less than substantial. More expensive desks are usually big and chunky and are made out of the best woods like solid oak. You can purchase desks that are plain and simple, modern and stylish or elaborate and extravagant.
