Features of Roll Top Computer Desks

Roll-top computer desks look like traditional roll-top desks, but contain areas for storing your computer and related accessories. The desks are available at a number of furniture stores and outlets and are made from various types of wood. Roll-top computer desks hold both desktop and laptop computers as well as other devices. When you are done using your computer, you can roll the desk's cover, also known as a slat, down to conceal everything inside.

Writing Surface

Roll-top computer desks include a writing surface for placing your computer monitor, laptop computer, mouse, printer and traditional writing instruments including pads, pens, paper clips and other supplies.

Keyboard Tray & Slide-Out Writing Tray

Below the writing surface is a slide-out keyboard tray that has room for your computer mouse. Next to the keyboard tray, on certain model roll-top-computer desks, there is a slide-out writing tray for placing additional supplies on your desk or for writing notes as you are typing.

Slots & Drawers

Roll-top computer desks also contain slots and drawers for storing discs---CDs and DVDs, speakers and other supplies. The slots and drawers are above and below the writing surface. Most roll-top computer desk models include one filing cabinet for storing files, folders and other supplies.

Desktop/Tower Computer and Scanner Storage

On one side of the desk is an opening for your desktop/tower computer and a scanner or printer. The opening also contains a slide-out shelf that is removable if you need to fit your tower computer in the space. If using a desktop computer, you can place your computer on the slide-out shelf or in the space below the shelf.

Various Sizes

If space is an issue, smaller roll-top-computer desks are also available that include a smaller desktop/tower computer storage section and not as many storage drawers.
