    Good quality lapdesk, but not for everyone

    This lap desk is made of good quality material and has clean construction, not to mention a very nice design and is relatively light in weight. However, it fails in two main areas. The first is heat shielding. I had first looked into getting a lap desk because the heat from my laptop was starting to cause some serious irritation on my legs to the point where i started using pillows under my computer to shield myself from the heat. This lap desk does not do a very good job of shielding that heat and part of the reason is that the material covering the cushion on the bottom is made of 100% polyester, which (if you know anything about fabrics) traps heat and gets warm itself instead of distributing and dissipating it. The other problem i had was the relatively small bumper lip at the bottom of the upper surface that is supposed to stop your computer from sliding down. My laptop is a 15" and it would actually side over that bumper anytime the lap desk was raised or angled past maybe 40 degrees (which is similar to slightly arching your legs while having your computer on your lap). A thicker bumper or different design would have done a better job of preventing the laptop from sliding off and down. My point is that it's all about how you use it and what device you use with it which will determine if this item works for you or not. If you use a tablet or just a book or a keyboard or a small thin laptop that is not too heavy and doesn't give off noticeable heat then this will work well for you, but anything past a 14" laptop will be too heavy and produce too much heat for this item to be effective or comfortable. Unfortunately, I will be returning mine.

    These are just the BEST! There are a million similar type products but this SPECIFIC ONE is the BEST. Here’s why. It is comfortable on your LAP. It doesn’t make your lap hot and sweaty because it is light enough that it lets you feel comfortable. Also. It has a spot for a pen and a little slot to put a phone or calculator in. It’s just the perfect basic everyday item my husband and I were looking for. We bought two. They are great for working while watching tv or working on a jewelry project or lots of other things. I also wrote Christmas cards on mine. I pay bills on it. It’s something we use nearly every day. Love them. Thank you.

    The looks and quality are great. The materials used seems tops. My issue is my MacBook Pro (which the same model is used on their packaging photograph) slides all over the place, and most important, slides right over the plastic stop designed to keep your computer from sliding off. Defeats the purpose of having the stop. I have to constantly be aware of the angle as i shuffle, and it takes little effort to make my laptop slide over and into my lap. My advice to LapGear; make the stop wider and of a sticky material (rubber?) and test test test!

    Bought it for my girlfriend so that she could use her laptop on her bed to watch shows, do hw, etc. She loves the design and the small slit for her phone. After comparing it to my lapdesk, I still wish that the material was a bit softer and contained memory foam for the price it was being sold as. Still, it's a working lap desk with the functions I bought it for, and since my girlfriend is happy, then so will I.

    The size is perfect for a larger laptop and the ledge at the bottom is perfect for keeping it in place. The problem is the stuffing they use for the back. It's those microbeads, and they just smash up and move around so you get very little padding. I'm constantly having to shift it around.

    Very comfy laptop stand (LapGear)

    I love my LapGear! It is very comfy and I love that it has a little piece in the front edge area to keep my laptop from sliding off. The round edges are just perfect. CON: The flat surface isn’t wide enough. When I put my laptop on the surface and my cellphone in the white compartment, I can’t actually see my phone because of the laptop hides it. It would be nice if the LapGear was a little wider.

    I absolutely love this! I do a lot of work from home, specifically in the living room so I can still hang out with friends and family comfortably! I love the design, and even with the paisley decorations it's still fairly neutral. It isn't too large or heavy, there is enough room on the top to have a wireless mouse which I use all the time. I also love the holder for my phone or a pen. It's great, 10/10!!

    I’m a console gamer and I have a wonderful gaming chair, but don’t have a computer desk. This lap desk is perfect for my tablet or a 5 subject notebook and my phone. It’s extremely comfortable for extended use whether playing in a marathon gaming session or writing in a notebook. Definitely a great purchase if you’re in need of a desk but don’t have room for one.

    I need a lapdesk for eating at my desk primarily. My bf had one from iKea but i wanted something cuter. Found these on Bestbuy and in grey no less..which gives it a sophisticated look and i had these little grooves and docks for my phone or my laptop if i needed to be on my bed to do other stuff...that it added a whole new innovation that i can utilize it for. great buy.

    I would give this 5 stars but for 2 things. The guard at the bottom to keep your computer from sliding off the bottom should be a little higher. I would help. Also, the surface is very slippery but I found a fix with using rubber-like shelf liner for my computer and a little one for my mouse when not in use.

    This product was awesome and my wife loved it. She used it for homework, painting her nails while she watched shows, and coloring with our daughter. After about a year one of the stitches came out and slowly leaked out the little beads inside, but it was great up to that point.

    Great and adaptable for nights when I want to write papers before bedtime. My husband also utilizes his when he’s gaming. This lap desk is easy to carry with an attached handle, easy to keep clean, and if you need to wash the bottom portion it is easily detachable/attachable.

    My daughter at 12 years old has started to learn to animate. She needed a separate pad to hook up to the laptop and this lapdesk works great for it.It also works amazing for the laptop as well and is very comfortable to use. I started using it myself with my iPad, it’s such an amazing device and helps relieve my tennis elbow from freeholding my device.

    I bought this for my girlfriend who uses her laptop a lot. I've never asked her how she likes it but I've never seen her laptop away from this since she got it. She carries it everywhere so I assume she likes it. She did mention it was comfortable. She is not one for many words so this is significant!

    If I'm on my laptop for any long period of time, this is a must. It keeps the laptop cool, me comfortable, and has a slot for my phone which was a bonus ; HOWEVER, it's surface is SLICK-i WISH it had small side stops so if I suddenly move, the laptop doesn't go SLIDING AND I'M CATCHING IT.

    It’s a nice size for the daughter that has a Chrome book for school and insists on working in a chair or in her bed with it. The slot for phone fits a regular size iPhone landscape and larger size portrait. If you need more room for mouse, get a larger size. For students it’s great.

    Now THIS IS PERFECT for us! My husband and I use these ALL the time for Many things. He uses his for work. I use mine for work, crafts including jewelry making. I also use more be to watch movies on with my iPad Pro. It’s SUPER comfy but also stable NOT wobbly or flimsy like some other brands. Love these!

    OK for the price, but not the best

    This LapDesk is ok for the price; however, because of the extremely smooth surface of the LapDesk, the laptop slides around and the lip on the LapDesk does not help. I use a 15" MacBook Pro Touchbar and prefer my old lapdesk that has a nonskid surface. Maybe the LapDesk would be ok with a 17", but nothing smaller.

    Good but heavy

    This is a large lap desk so it is heavy. I use this while sitting up in bed or in a chair. But it is sturdy and heavy. The lip on the bottom should be a little larger to hold the laptop in place while the board should be thinner. I don't recommend this size for smaller laptops.

    I debated if I “needed” this or not but finally decided to cash in my rewards certificates to get it and I love it. I do a lot of college homework in bed whether it be on my laptop, iPad, or even my books and this just makes it a bit more comfortable and organized. Plus it’s soooo cute!
