It's got a motor that takes it from sitting height to standing height in a 10-15 seconds.

I have a Varidesk (48") and LOVE it! I did have to also purchase one of those anti-fatigue mats to stand on though (for my back). It made a world of difference!

I have a Surface Pro which is a highly mobile 'convertable' device.

I may back room, the one with 270 degrees of window, I have large work table at standing height. I use it primarily for sewing. Yep, some folks still know how to do that.

This afternoon, I was doing research, watched the cardinals and bluejay squabble over peanuts and did not get that pain in the neck of weariness around the shoulders.

No.  Never been a fan of the concept.  Or the treadmill desks.  One thing I see you're in need of is one of those $120 kitchen mats that are just so amazing to stand on.  Williams Sonoma has them, they take so much pressure off of your knees you will be sending me cookies to say thanks!

I've seen these desks, but I need more space on my desk than that. I just get up every once it a while and it does the same thing, only cheaper. Besides, it would give me a hernia lifting it up with all the things I have on my desk.
