We usually have a computer desk set up with a desktop on it. I didn't want to do that again especially with laptop prices now. A chromebook does all I need (just internet) and they are under $300 so that's what I got. I went to Staples but they price matched with Amazon. I had to request it, they just don't automatically make their prices competitive. I can't say I really respect that. Anyway I have my little office counter in the kitchen. When I'm not using it, I can easily put the computer away. My papers are filed right there on the wall. It makes it so I won't forget about anything since I have easy access to them.
