    Just Awesome

    Man I really don't know how else to put it, This is the best thing since sliced bread to me. I always use my laptop and I've always had to use my lap, which is bad for your legs and bad for your laptop because the fans are sitting on the fabric of your jeans or the couch or bed or whatever its sitting on. I have a high power gaming laptop and this thing just keeps fresh air available to the bottom of my laptop and is just so ultra convenient with the built in mousepad, I wish I had known this thing existed years ago I would've dropped my laptop a few less times, a lot less times since this thing has held onto my laptop and stayed right on my legs even when I dozed off on the couch several times! I wake up and my laptop is just sitting there lol. I think its because the back padding is really thick memory foam that really just sort of conforms to your legs so it just doesn't slip side to side or back and forward at all! Im using it right now and its almost funny how secure it sort of mounts your laptop to your lap. Anyway, just awesome, I love it.

    Seemed too wide for smaller laptops but was ok

    Purchased several lap desks throughout the last 5 years. This one had the right shape (no curves). Not too deep from stomach, with underneath pads positioned so they just fit on my legs (any more distance and it would hang past my knees). It seemed a little too wide for smaller 11" & 13" laptops (I had an 11" and now have a 13" laptop). I understand it needs accommodates a 17" laptop but it worked out ok. Depending on how narrow the seat area is that I am sitting in (arm rest distance or left or right end of sofa with the arm rest), would require shifting lap desk left or right a little and realigning laptop left or right to compensate for the shift, when using a mouse. It has only one mouse pad, on right side only, which is good. The left side (laptop side) has a non-slide design which isn't that pleasing to the eye but holds laptop fairly firmly in place. Wrist pad is not too high with slight padding but supportive. Its height does not interfere when using a mouse. Especially like the Cell phone holder. It is very handy when needing to use notes from cell phone when typing. Also facilitates using notes from cell phone while using landline phone from home and taking hand written notes on top of a closed laptop. All in all, a very nice design. Very pleased.

    Good Lapdesk

    I've had a few other lap desks in the past and wasn't impressed with any of them. I was a bit hesitant about investing in another one, but my needs dictated the expenditure. While this lap desk is a bit more expensive than I had planned on, I do believe it's one of those rare products that's actually worth the price. I mostly use the desk for holding a wireless mouse and keyboard to play games on my HTPC, but I have used it with my 15.6" laptop. The unit is quite rigid and stable, even with the laptop on it. The textured surface keeps the laptop and keyboard from sliding around. The built in wrist rest is comfortable and effective. The built in mouse pad is a bit of a mixed blessing. Both of my mice work beautifully on it, but since this is a lap desk and is seldom completely level, the mouse slides around on the pad freely and is seldom where you left it. The padding on the under side is designed so that the desk is tilted towards you as it sits on your lap. Though it's probably obvious I think I should point out that this lap desk is intended for right handed mouse operation and isn't going to work well at all if you try to turn it the other way for left handed use. Overall, I think this is a good buy. It would be nice if they offered it more colors. Black is boring.

    One of the few choices for massive 17" laptops

    Overall, there aren't that many choices for 17 inch laptops. I have an Alienware 17 r3 and this fits like a glove. There is literally no room left on this lap desk once it's sitting on it. There's just enough room for the mouse on it's integrated mouse pad (not removable) and there's a handy cell phone holder just above the mouse pad. Ideally, the phone holder would be more useful if it were a little wider to accomodate my note 4 with case but without the case on, it's a nice fit. Honestly,, though, i would rather just get rid of that and put in a calculator. I use it as a pen holder. The wrist rest is just OK, it's about the same height as my laptop so it doesn't do much good. The cushions on the bottom do it's job and it does stay relatively cool. The material on top is a vinyl type covering that sort of resembles carbon fiber. It takes minor nicks pretty well but over time, it's been getting scratched up due to the weight of my laptop. The wood is thin, yet, strong enough to keep from flexing. Overall, not a bad product at all. When you have a huge laptop, beggars can't be choosers. I'd definitely recommenced this.

    Necessity for Laptop

    My husband wanted a lap desk so he could use his laptop comfortably in bed or lounging around on the sofa. He has a gaming laptop and needed a lap desk that was a bit bigger than normal. He really loves this lap desk and uses it all the time. It has cushioning on the bottom (soft fabric filled with beads) so it rests comfortably in your lap. It has a handle so it's easy to tote around from room to room. The laptop area is wide and fits his gaming laptop well. There's a place to the right for you to use a mouse if you have one attached, or rest a notebook to write things down. Above this area is a little groove to place your cellphone. It sits upright so you can read the display easily and see any incoming messages, alerts, or calls, without having to pick it up. The bottom area has a cushion for you to rest your wrists so they are comfortable for long-term use. I would recommend this to anybody looking to purchase a lap desk as it works great and has lots of great features.

    I have major back issues that prevent me from sitting in the office chair in my home office to work. So, I bought this Lap Desk so I could sit on my sofa and write on my laptop. This Lap Desk is very lightweight and has soft cushions underneath, which makes it comfortable for your legs. The felt mouse pad is just the right size; not too big, or too small. The desk's large size accommodates laptops up to 17 inches, however, mine is only 15.6 and it doesn't make a difference, it still feels just right. My only complaint (and it doesn't apply to me), is that the Lap Desk is designed for right handed people. People in their right minds (lefties will get the joke) would be inconvenienced with the mouse pad on the right side of the computer. Unfortunately, turning the desk around won't solve the problem because the wrist support is securely affixed to the desk. In the next iteration (if there is one...), the manufacturer should consider allowing a movable wrist support. Who knows, they might sell a few more since they won't be ignoring the left-handed demographic.

    My adult daughter has difficulty sitting at a desk due to an injury. She has a 17 in notebook which requires air circulation from the bottom, thus is not a laptop. Trying different solutions, magazines, books, piece of plywood, etc.. nothing really worked. I found this lap-caddy at BB and at first thought is too expensive even at $10 off. I finally broke down and bought it figuring if it did not work well I would return it. Well, this is the greatest thing since sliced bread. This holds a 17 inch notebook perfectly. It has a non-slip hard surface so the notebook stays in place and allows sufficient airflow just like a desk top would. It also has a mouse pad area large enough that works, and a slot to hold a cell phone. My daughter can sit in a large lounge chair with her legs and feet up and this caddy will balance perfectly on her lap. It has enough padding on the bottom to be comfortable and does not make her legs sore. If she has to get up, the lap-caddy is sturdy enough so it can just be lifted up with everything in place and just set aside. Best money spent on something that is truly functional and has been worth the cost.

    Excellent product

    Bought this for the times I work at home and dont want to sit at a desk. Girlfriend loves it because I dont use couch or bed space with my wireless mouse. Very comfortable. Also takes the heat off of my lap area, although that was never a major issue with my current laptop. Also nice to have my phone handy and quick access to the display for when I get calls. Excellent construction although I am sure the cost of construction is well below the $50 price point that it sells for. Hard to find a complaint with this product. I could only mention that I have a 15.6" laptop and there is no extra room so I am not sure where they get the 17" laptop from unless it was a 4:3 ratio screen (i.e. old). Mouse pad is a tad narrow but my mouse sensitivity is pretty high so I can move anywhere on the screen without leaving the surface. May be an issue for others.

    We’ve been wanting to get a lap desk for a long time, but never really got around to it and had no idea what to buy. So one day, while innocently browsing best buy’s website, I came across the Creative Manufacturing – 17 Series Lap Desk and thought, hmm, this doesn’t look back. I checked out the specs and read some reviews, which were mostly favorable, and then decided to get it in black. What appealed to me about the product, is the cushions on the bottom and the spot where you’d place your wrist. So a little comfort was provided while it was on your lap. I also like that there’s a slot on the side for your phone and notepad. While we don’t use the part for the phone, it has been quite convenient having a notepad right next to the laptop and we don’t have to move much when using it. All in all, this lap desk is great. We’ve had it for almost two weeks now and still can’t get over how convenient it is to have. It’s a good thing not having the laptop and all it’s heat directly on our laps, and we like the leverage the desk gives the laptop, making it breathe a little. I highly recommend this product!

    The perfect portable laptop desk

    I find that this works better than expected. It holds the laptop at just the right height when I'm on the sofa. And there is enough room so that you can have others items (papers, books, etc.) next to the computer as you work. It also has a couple of deep slots. I use those for pens and sometimes my iPhone. The surface is sturdy and surprisingly light weight. It holds the laptop up off of me so that my lap doesn't get hot while using the computer. I find that I use this little desk even when not using the computer. When sorting coupons, there is enough room to spread them out. I use it for paperwork of all kinds. It is more than a laptop computer desk to me. We have played cards on it, kids have used it for a comfortable drawing/coloring desk. This small desk is thin enough to slip between the sofa and the side table, keeping it accessible but out of sight and not under foot. For me, this is my perfect laptop/everything-else-that-needs-a flat-surface desk.

    Start off by saying that this was the only real lap desk by store had. Purchased it to sit my 15in Razer Blade on, plenty of room and space for the laptop. The phone holder is "meh" it's holds the phone but if your phone needs charging you may have issues, a small hole to the bottom of the board would of been nice so you can route the cord to the laptop for power. Other thing is the mouse pad, in my opinion, is a bit to narrow. I understand the need to accommodate a bigger variety of laptop sizes but it's just maybe an inch to narrow. I would rate it all in all 8/10 good buy if you don't mind the 2 minor issues

    Slab of plastic exactly as advertized

    It is a sturdy slab of plastic with a built in mouse pad, wrist rest, cellphone crack thing, and long bean bags on the underside. It is a simple design that does exactly what it was designed to do. I use it everywhere. Not sure why it costs as much as it does, but it isn't likely you will need to replace it considering just how sturdy it is. It doesn't even need to be on a lap to be good. I put it on normal tables and uneven surfaces. The bean bags on the underside shift and shuffle to form to whatever surface I put it on. Surprising how stable it is in the weirdest of places. A must have for traveling.

    Great quality. I thought I’d rather have one on legs so I could lay under it...but I think this is far better. I can set it on my bedside table when I’m sleeping. It keeps my laptop situated and out of harms way. I have a MacBook so it’s like delicate lol. Perfect space for a mouse with a built in mouse pad (awesome) and a slot to put your cell in while you’re working. It also has a handle so you can carry it easily in to another room. I personally use the phone slot for my Apple TV remote. It used to bother me Bc I was always misplacing that tiny remote! Turns out that it literally fits perfectly in that spot! I love it. And since I don’t use a mouse I just place my phone where the mousepad would go. Win win!

    I bought this for use with a 15.6" laptop and it fits perfectly. While the description says it fits up to 17" units I don't think that will work out unless you are willing to lose part of the mousepad space. The actual desk space to the left of the mousepad is 16.25" wide, which is why larger laptops will have a problem. It's light, comfortable, and allows the laptop vents to "breathe." The dual cushions underneath are very comfortable and don't overheat your lap as much as a single cushion would. The mousepad works as it should, and the slot above it for your phone is very convenient. Oh, the wrist rest is just the right height and firm with comfortable padding. I do feel it was a bit expensive, but it had the features I wanted so I picked it up anyway.

    Almost perfect... but mouse problem

    I'm using this while sitting on the couch as I normally would, with the tray at a slight upward angle, and the mouse is sliding down. It's not steep, but the pad really should stick better, I know there's different types of felt that sticks better while still allowing easy movement, I have a pad that does the same thing, though I'd have to cut it and stick it to the pad to use it. Too bad, considering the tray works perfectly otherwise, well, except as a phone stand, because to get a phone with a case in there, the phone has to be at an angle that makes it unreadable and unusable, maybe a 7" tablet without a case will fit there, but the angle of the slot is really too shallow unless the tray is level or angled away from you, which is not likely to happen.

    This lap desk is perfect for sitting with, when you have no table, like sitting in a recliner. It fits my 17 inch laptop perfectly, although going larger than 17", it wouldn't fit I believe. I think it even says on the packaging only for 17" laptops or smaller. Perfect for when your laptop heats up too much for your lap. Provides good circulation for the laptop, just like putting it on a desk. It provides space for an external mouse. Also there is a slot to put your cell phone into. Cons- Cannot charge your cellphone while in slot, unless either your cell has charging cable on the top of the phone or you turn your phone upside down. No drink holder? (? Sounds dangerous actually)

    Purchased this laptop desk as I do a lot of work at home sitting in a recliner due to back problems. It works very well, but wish the cushioning underneath that rests on your legs was fuller as after a month or two, it tends to flatten out and then the hard plastic edge rests on my legs and actually makes indentations on my legs and I have to move it constantly. Other than that is it very wide and accommodates my 17" laptop and has room left over for my rollerball mouse. If you have a regular scroll mouse there is not much room to move it around.

    I bought this after purchasing a gaming laptop. This desk is super comfortable and lets me game for hours without my legs or wrists getting tired. The desk fits a fan and my 17.3" laptop easily with room for my gaming mouse on the mouse pad. The cushions on the bottom distribute the weight evenly and the wrist cushion is the perfect height for me. Without this desk I don't think I'd be able to play my Omen for very long. The weight of my laptop alone is about 13 pounds. Definitely a must have for playing on a gaming laptop!

    The carbon fiber accents make it look sharp and the built in mousepad is usable, at best, for my smaller laptop mouse. Im using this with a pretty big gaming laptop however (ASUS G702 Strix 17 inch) so anything smaller would allow adequate room for mouse usage. All in all I use it either on the couch or in my bed and it allows me to comfortably rest my pc on my lap and either browse the web while watching TV or grab the charger and game for a while. For what it is designed to be this product is very well put together. One minor complaint is that the front "wrist pad" suppose to be there for comfort seems more uncomfortable than anything. Could just be my personal preference.

    Incorrectly labeled for 17, but actually for 15.

    So this says 17 in the description, but doesn't really fit a 17" laptop. I used the smallest 17 inch laptop - thin bezels - so it was basically as small as 17" could be. Was still too big, spilling over into the mouse pad area and over the other edge. However, a 15" laptop fit perfectly. Even the label on the item says 15". I checked to make sure I had the right item, but the sku/upc all matched. Even comparing to the one available in store. Better and cheaper alternatives available.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
