I was browsing an old issue of Popular Mechanics when I found this piece on how to build a computer station that hides that pesky machine when not in use. Ergonomically it probably works better than just about any desk I ever had in the 1980s and I can see how once sealed your computer would be out of sight. My issue with this, and all hideaway models, is why would I ever want to put my computer away? I felt that way since my first computer and I feel that way now. Sure I like to minimize wires and unnecessary components, but I always wanted quick access to my machine. This rolltop just wouldn’t do, although I can respect that other people might want to do that, especially with the clunkier machines of the past.
