Computer on top or bottom of desk?
Posted 16 March 2010 - 10:26 AM
So I was reading system builder marathon when I saw that apparantly, under the desk is where computers pick up the most dust and hair. I have carpet flooring and I do tend to shed long strands of hair a lot. Plus this would also expose my computer to more air and allow me to admire it more often.
But I am a little heisitant to move my computer on the top.
My desk isn't the most stable , it sorta shakes if you push it. Having the extra weight could make it worse. Also I am afraid it might fall.

There's only one situation where it's better being on the bottom..........
You have a dirty mind But I must agree
BTW, mines on top. I mean on the desk.

I've always had it the case on the floor or just above it.. makes it quieter and like others have said, the cooler air is down there so it helps out more.
