Mounting an Articulating Arm for Laptop & LCD Monitor

Has anyone mounted an articulating arm for a PC monitor and laptop? I don't have an RV yet, probably a Newmar DSDP 4381 next year. But I was thinking...

Ultra wall mount for your LCD and keyboard - ICWUSA.com, Inc.

or

Monitor Mount with Laptop Stand, Dual Arm 2 Link Articulating


This type of arm lets me mount a 28" monitor and have my laptop right below it in a second tray. I am a heavy PC user, working, video games, and just relaxing.

I was thinking of getting a recliner or reclining sofa with a cup holder in an arm then sticking the pole in it when I am settling in a new place or i know I'm gonna be using it for a while. When not in use, unplug it and stow it under my bed.

Any other ideas?

I looked at a lot of RV computer desks and most of them were overpowering -- just too big.

I wanted a setup that could be "minimalized". That's why I have the monitor mounted so that it can be folded away.

I think I'm gonna do this, it mounts underneath the passenger side front seat.
