Portable desks to support your notebook on your lap:
our bargain unit
"Our very first lap desk and perfect when all you need is a portable lap tray for your lap. It's identical to our Laptop Desk 2.0 in design, material and construction except it has no support arm for creating typing angles. The Laptop Desk 1.0 is true black and pewter gray rubber and weighs 1 lb. 4.5 oz."
The Laptop Desk Original is also our strongest unit and known for its strength as a portable lap desk. It’s so strong that it can support the weight of a 12 lb. bouncing bowling ball. (We know we tested it repeatedly.) It’s not likely you’ll be bouncing your notebook on the 2.0 but if you ever do, at least you know it’ll take the beating. It’s strong because it’s made of Polycarbonate plastic - the strongest natural plastic on the planet. And the heavy duty hinges won’t give even under the weight of a 12 lb. bouncing bowling ball.
The Original was our first single purpose, fully portable lap desk. It has strips of no-slip rubber on top and bottom for maximum gripping – a total of 66 square inches of gripping rubber on the top surface alone. The Laptop desk Original also has a series of ventilation channels that allow the heat that’s radiating from the bottom of your notebook to escape and draws cool air in to reduce your notebook’s heat build-up. On your lap the Original reduces the heat build-up in your notebook by up to 10%.
As a lap desk the 2.0 completely spans your lap at 20-1/2” long. Its ergonomic benefit is that it allows your legs to relax naturally so they don’t have to strain being squeezed together to support your notebook. The more relaxed your legs are the longer you can work in comfort and reduce the ergonomic hazards of poor body posture with your notebook computer.
An additional benefit of the Laptop desk Original is that it acts as a barrier between the heat source of your notebook and your lap. Most of you have heard the stories of people suffering burns from overheated notebooks. The Original prevent the heat from attacking your lap and makes working on your lap more of a pleasure than a discomfort.
The colors for the Laptop Desk 2.0 are black – both the plastic and no-slip rubber. Opened flat the 2.0 measures 20-1/2” long by 11” wide by 3/8” thick. Folded in half the Futura measures 11” by 10-5/8” by 5/8” thick and weighs 1 lb 6 oz.
