eNook

Just about everybody I know would love the eNook. Part furniture, part storage, and part gadget, the eNook is a one stop recharging station for all your electronic gear. Keep it open to use as a temporary desk, or close it to eliminate visual clutter. The eNook comes in 3 finishes. You can even customize the inside fabric. Available at Anthro for $399.

I like the eNook concept. I only have a small, narrow space to work with. Do they also make an eCranny for such a situation?

Maybe you can rig a medicine cabinet into an eCranny.

True, but when I open the door, everything slides off.
I guess I could use magnets, to hold things on to it.

Do you think it's very ergonomic if I have to constantly tilt my head to read my laptop strapped to the door?

Are you messing with me? Do you live in a closet? Ikea also sells this table that can be folded into the wall, but I also think it's too big for your space. Why don't you just sit in bed and put the laptop on your lap? Thus, the term, "laptop."

What about these "C" tables from Crate and Barrel and West Elm. They can go under a chair and when you're not using it, you can make it a side table.
