Computers in the Bedroom? Next to the Bed?!

It's usually a last-resort spot that's result of a too-small bedroom or an awkward floor plan. But are there any advantages to keeping the desk next to your bed?

In college, due to the unfortunate constraints of a too-small dorm room, I was forced to leave my horribly ugly dorm-issued computer desk right next to the head of my equally ugly dorm-issued bed.

The flickering ambient light from the different switches and indicators on my always-on-standby computer really annoyed me. I'm not a total-darkness-or-nothing kinda girl, but when they're glittering right next to your face the lights tend to become bothersome.

But in this era of streaming movies on Netflix and watching TV on Hulu.com, we see there might be an advantage to keeping a monitor close by. What do you think, Unplggd?
