Staples Cormac Computer Cart, Maple

As so often with any new technology purchase I make, there is a lot of scope creep...where I end up buying lots of other things associated with the purchase. Sometimes a bunch of these things come into the process before I even get around to the actual piece of technology.

This is one of those times. I still haven't gotten to the new computer, and I'm buying stuff due to it.

Since the Staples Desley Mesh Task Chair had gone so well, and the printer stand seemed so inadequate in the space (and ill suited for the task of being stand for old computer), I took a quick peek at Staples.com to see if there was an inexpensive desk that would fit the space and fit the bill. I had bought the chair last week, during last week's Weekly Ad sales....well, this week in the Weekly Ad was a sale on the Staples Cormac Computer Cart for $29.99 ($40 off).

After some measurements and having freed up extra space...it seemed like it would be a good fit and I went for it. Timing it so the delivery would happen today (Wednesday)...thinking that I would be home to receive it after a doctor office visit and before heading into work. Well, UPS was running slow today....it happens, especially this time of year, I guess. So, after waiting a little bit longer than intended, I headed in. I figured I could stick a note tomorrow for it to get left if it didn't get left. Its a 40lb box...it should be safe by my front door for a few hours, despite recent news of people stealing UPS packages...even following UPS drivers and signing for other people's packages.

Well, it got left, along with a few other packages....the box that the chair mat that I had ordered to get the order over the $50 for free delivery threshold. I didn't really think a chair mat would work in the space and I didn't need another one, but I couldn't find anything else on staples.com that struck me as something that was immediately available and could fill a need.

After settling in at home, I set out to assemble the desk. The only thing not included that it needed as a philips head screwdriver....it all went together quite well. And, of reasonable quality...given its price, etc. The mesh was dinged in some places, but only noticeable up close. And, the removable shelf came with two same side brackets, even though the instructions showed a left and a right. The parts list gave no indication that there should be a difference, as it was two part K's (unlike the sides of the keyboard shelf glides which was clearly a part L and a part M....conveniently part L was the left side) The problem with both part K's being the same is that the shelf only looks 'good' if used on the right side of the cart. In my current arrangement, I have it on the left side (since right side is into the corner of the room...) Though that may change as I position my computer in...since in normal setup, I have the computer to my right, and might move the desk away from the corner enough for it to tuck in on that side. :hmm:

In the current arrangement, the new chair mat doesn't fit into the space. It would if it was just the printer stand (which turned 90 degrees compared to computer desk, but not an L arrangement...the space is a cramped rectangle). I probably should've measured the the space to see if the chair mat would fit.

Perhaps I'll get it to fit when I get around to the reorg project of the other bedroom/storeroom/computerroom....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
