Over the years, you've jettisoned your giant computer monitors and clunky hard drives, opting for sleeker, flatter screens or downsized into compact laptops or netbooks. Still, despite these upgrades, you have the same over-sized desk from your childhood bedroom with built-in file cabinets and a swivel chair.

But, now, with many retailers offering petite laptop stations -- some with adjustable surfaces and heights, it's easy to streamline your old desk into a new flexible, convertible piece of furniture.

Learn where to find the kind of stations that perch up against your couch like side tables or those that can be pulled up in front of your favorite chair.
