Abstract

A desk top Personal Computer stand is shown in Figs. 1 and 2. The stand is designed with a cavity to store the keyboard under the computer when not in use. A finger groove 1 allows the keyboard to be grasped and pulled out. Projections 2 and 3 in slots 4 and 5 detent the keyboard in a typing position, as shown in Fig. 2. An upward and outward movement of the keyboard will allow complete removal. A vertical back panel 6 serves an aesthetic purpose as well as being a safety shield to hide the many wires and connectors. Sufficient openings are left in the bottom, top, and sides for heat removal. The back panel 6 is held in place by grooves and two dowel pins and is removable with a slight vertical pull. The entire unit sits on a swivel, "lazy Susan,"-type bearing with a non-marking pad.
