It's hard to get rid of this feeling in the isometric perspective. No
matter how you try it always ends up looking like strange (I believe
it's because human brain is not used to isometric perspective and
interprets it wrongly in these cases), unless you place the monitor
upwards (which I tried to avoid).

Yeah, I've seen such set-ups but they are really rare, alas the place is
finite and if we go with monitor PLUS computer tower there doesn't to be
any better way of placing those.
