A few random thoughts on this subject...

It is entirely possible for a determined person to create
a 400 page manual with "with graphics, tables etc." in MS
Word. In the days before programs like Quark and FM, we
used to do docs like that using WP software all the time,
and before that, on IBM Selectrics.

This incident says as much about your manager as anything
else. Apparently, you complained about your working
conditions to HR rather than your boss, moved another
employee's "stuff" instead of waiting for that employee
to move it himself after your boss told you the other desk
was going away (presumably, without your actually having to
move it yourself), and your boss still went to bat for you
with another manager and got you a new monitor instead of
dumping you and the entire situation at HR's doorstep.
Count yourself one lucky employee.
