Comments about Bestar� Embassy Collection in Tuscany Brown; Keyboard Shelf and CPU Platform:
The mounting flanges are bent outward instead of inward, thus requiring a total horizontal mounting space of 28 1/4 inches. It easily installs and allows for 25 3/8 by 2 7/8 inches of un-interuptable space. My 17 inch wide laptop easily fits with with a thin cooling fan beneath and it's DVD tray still fully opened. Plenty of cabeling room on both sides. It makes a good laptop docking station. The table top above it can cleanly hold a large display and keyboard. For a quick exit with laptop, pull out the shelf, drape disconneted cables over drawer ends, close and go.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
