About to pull the trigger on an uplift v2 standing desk and I live in a 710sqft apt. I'm considering either 48x30, which fits perfectly in a nook beside my couch, or do I push it and get 60x30? It won't fit in the nook, but will still fit in-between couch and the wall. Nervous about moving into a smaller apt at some point and being stuck with a large desk.

If the small one fits now and you anticipate having even less space in the future, no clue what the justification for a bigger desk would be

Pictures?

Moved to a smaller apartment a couple months ago, upsized desk to a 60x30 (Fully Jarvis) - haven't regretted it for a second

No monitors, but I generally have up to 4 laptops open at a time Had a desk before - not sure of exact measurements, just some IKEA table. Might have been 48x30 at the most

I think it’s all about what you need equipment wise. I’ve got personal and business laptops (3 that I use kvm switch), plus gaming desktop (on a separate standing desk). 32in gaming monitor, plus 3 screen work set up including coding monitor. I need the space. But I also spend all my time either working or gaming. So that’s my priority. If you need all that or a lot of space, get it. I wouldn’t get the larger desk in NY unless it’s a necessity.

I got one from Wayfair that actually rests in a table for this reason. Super easy to use and I can move it around as needed.

Get the suction cup one for the window from shark tank. It’s awesome!
