This time, I have bought a desktop contraption, similar to the one that Hugh posted at the top of this thread -- actually, it is two contraptions: one for my laptop to sit on, and one for my wireless keyboard (set up at a lower height). There is room for my wireless mouse next to the keyboard.
My plan is to have a stint at the standing desk every hour or two, using it until the battery runs down on my laptop, then reverting to my usual curled-up-on-the-sofa position. I'll let you know how it goes.
How do other standing desk users find it, now that some time has passed since the initial discussion here?

Paternal grandfather's Mason sword. He died before I was old enough to know him. The American Flyer trains up on the shelves, the sword and a few other bits of his Masonic regalia, and some of his WWII medals are all I have of him.

So I have now bought the Magic Keyboard instead, and it arrived today. I don't like it much. No idea why Apple have got rid of the lovely slope and thin feel of the previous version. And there was nothing wrong with the old key mechanism, so I don't know why they changed that. This new model feels cheap and ugly in comparison, despite the fact that the price has gone up enormously. Grrrr..
