          Aight, this is my setup: TV in front of me, 2 monitors to the left one to the right, livingroom table as a ''desk''.. Oh, did i say i'm siting in a couch and not a bloody chair? Yeah, i have my setup in my living room.. I wanna play some shooters or an MMO, work, research or something? no problem, pillow behind my back, and everything is comfy. Wanna play some Playstation or watch a movie/series? nooo problem, just lay back and i'm suddanly super comfy.. So, this ''gaming desk'' doesn't make sense to me xP

                                          I have a gaming desk and a gaming chair. They are off-brand inspired by famous ones, which is why I have them. My desk was literally the cheapest unit in an otherwise office-centred store. So was my chair. My desk is very good and my chair is okay, but they were both cheap, so...

                                          What makes no sense is *paying a premium for **_gaming_** hardware.*

                                            what they meant by elbow rest is that some players like to tilt their keyboard (some even complete 90 degrees like mongraal) for mouse space and they say its comfortable if u do that. You can check Mongraal`s handcam and understand what they mean

Also the desk shaked when he fake lowkicked it, all the money went into the design, when they should have covered function first. Best gaming desk is an L-shaped office desk, adjustable in height.
