Hi! Before we finalized our plan we decided to go with an iMac, so we just made sure that there was an outlet built into the posting board behind and above the desk, since the iMac has the processor built in to the display. However if you had a computer that had a separate processor in a tower, you could plan to have a small opening in the desk and an outlet in the wall below the desk so you could put the tower below the desk and run cords up through the opening to the monitor. Have fun with your plans!

What are the dimensions of the desk (minus the drawer space) and height of the cabinets above? Thanks

Hi finally getting back to you with your question. The cabinets are about 45" tall total, but the useable space (minus the molding at top) is about 38". The desk is 25" deep, 28 1/2" tall, and a total of 45" wide. Drawer area is 15" wide so take away that and you have 30" wide for the area where the chair goes in. Hope this is helpful!
