We bought a new house today and I'm trying to figure out where I'm going to put the 'puter. I don't want it in the guest room/office anymore b/c I want to use my grammy's furniture that I inherited (currently in storage) and make a proper guest room. The other bedrooms will be for DH and me, DS, and my future nursery. So, that leaves our room, the playroom, or the family room.

Thoughts? I thought I'd be nosy and see where y'all keep your 'puters. We won't move until Jan so I've got some time to think about it.

Ours is a laptop so we keep it in the briefcase unless we are using it. I would vote for your room. It is easier to keep small, curious hands away from it.

We have ours in the family room, so that i can keep an eye on the kids while they are on it...what they are doing, what they are playing, etc.

Ours is in the dining room mainly because the DR is bigger than the LR and we don't have a family room. I don't want a computer with internet access in the boys' room, so that is why we have it in a common area. We also don't have any place in the kitchen to put it.

we have ours on a really big corner desk unit upstairs in the den. our living area is downstairs along with our bedroom. the steps to upstairs go up from the back of the house, so at the top of the steps is an open area with three bedrooms and a bath off of it. the foyer is two story, so that part of the den is open to the second story of the foyer. the reason we have the computer up there is, i want it out of view when we have guests, and while it is out of the way, i can hear if the kids are on it, and whats going on up here. its a common area out of the way.

at this point, we have lots of room, because two of our kids have moved out. i would put it in one of the spare bedrooms, but i dont want ds2 going in and shutting the door. hes been into too much on the computer already without the privacy! LOL.

We have a home based business, so our computer is in the office. The kids' computer, with no internet access, is in the spare room/playroom.

Currently it is in the dining room, which is connected to our living room through an archway.
