Their unadjustable screens sit so high over the desktop that the top of the screen of the 27” iMac is over eye level for me, and that’s not good for my old neck.

A few years ago, I solved the my personal ergonomic issues by building a very small rolling desk just 23.5in high that I can place in front of my recliner, supporting monitors at the right height for me and with the mouse at a non-destructive height relative to the recliner arm. I used part of a sheet of IKEA birch butcherblock to build the entire project, width 34in, depth 20in. I don't expect my knees to fit under it, but the setup is very comfortable and has worked well for me for the last ten years. Normally, I use the wireless keyboard on my lap.
