They're not pretty, but comfortable

Attach your computer screen to your favorite easy chair

Finally, something we can use. We've been drawn to the idea of chair-mounted computers for some time, but the set-ups we've seen have been too fancy for our taste. (Translation: we're cheap).

The Easy Chair Mount isn't exactly chump change either ($285), but it does look sturdy enough to hold up in an earthquake, which is no small consideration when you're talking about 20 pounds of glass suspended over your lap. And you'll want maximum structural integrity if you opt for the dual-monitor version. Best of all, the manufacturer claims that this can be assembled in less than 5 minutes--leaving maximum time for lounging afterward.

(Not included: The counseling bills when your spousal unit or significant other finds out about this.)
