I went to CostCo (warehouse store) and got one of the rolling crhome-
plated steel wire-rack units.  Nice, big, rubber casters, and you can 
get extra shelves for them at places like The Container Store (there 
are probably other places you can get them cheaper).  I have my desktop 
towers side by side on one shelf, and use another for the rack-oriented
The other shelves house supplies.

I also have one in the kitchen that the microwave is on; it's also used
storing bulk stuff like cases of soda.

You might be able to get them cheaper at a place that sells used
equipment, as they are used in the food industry.

This is the company that made mine:

Costco's prices were better than theirs.

I thought about racks, since they are pretty cheap to find in Silicon
these days. :-/  But, that was just a little over the edge for me in
of "bringing the work home".  And they are a little more multi-purpose,
I can re-use them if I ever ditch the gaggle of computers...
