Varidesk Pro Plus 36 Standing Desk

Sitting for hours on end may slowly kill you, but the steep cost of acquiring a standing desk will have most settling for the former regardless. The Varidesk Pro Plus 36 Standing Desk is a solution that’s a little easier to swallow. Instead of replacing your existing desk entirely, this solid contraption sits atop it and by default provides a small boost in height for your laptop, monitor, or dual screen setup — something most of us could use while sitting, anyway. When you’re ready to stand, a spring-assisted lifting mechanism rated for 35 pounds raises the display surface by nearly 18 inches in just a few seconds, along with a platform for your keyboard and mouse. Best of all it comes fully assembled right out of the box, meaning setup is as easy as placing it on a desk and loading on your computer rig.
