This is worthy of an equipment thread. I'm sitting at a desk so much now I'm dreading it. There are adjustable desks out there and I'm wondering which of them might be worthy of consideration. Anyone here have experience with any of the many available?

Mark Sisson was promoting this one.

I think they make a Kangaroo and a Kangaroo Pro. I haven't looked into them seriously enough to know the difference though. I should probably get one though, I sit on my rear all day :D

Those are cool if your need for desktop space is not immense. Since I'm working with engineering documents the space hast to be huge, even bigger that what is shown in the pics here: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/22/technology/personaltech/22basics.html

$500 for a desk "top". Wow.

If I was going to pay that much for a standing desk, I might get this one: http://www.geekdesk.com/

Since I use a laptop, this might be best for my office: http://www.anthro.com/computer-furniture.aspx?desk=adjustable-laptop-cart

I like the anthro and the geekdesk too. But, I think I've found what I'm looking for and the price is much better than what I've seen so far: http://www.ergodepot.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=ad111hd&click=1147 for $1,195.00

This is pretty cool: http://www.simplifiedbuilding.com/blog/how-to-build-a-custom-ergonomic-computer-desk/ Built from scratch and with a couple of tweeks it could be made adjustable!
