go with a compact cube

A modest, modern unit with a tiny footprint—great for a kitchen or studio apartment. Meet its many uses: •cubby for a computer hard drive or printer •file cabinet (fits legal or letter-size files) •laptop living quarters

A dropdown desktop (with built-in storage!) is just about as versatile as it gets.
