    Laptop Desk

    Posted

    The laptop desk provides good support while sitting to work. Since they say you shouldn't have a laptop on a fabric surface, it is better that it is on a hard surface to prevent fabric fibers from being sucked into the laptop; could cause damage to the laptop, overheating, etc.. I just wish it had a ledge to keep it from sliding down when sitting with it on an angle (knees bent), when sitting on the floor. A little larger surface would be nice to allow for an external mouse to be used.

    I bought this product primarily for my wife to use. She has an older MacBook laptop computer (2008) which get's hot, and is uncomfortable on her lap. The Lap Desk gives her a surface to put her laptop on, that also keeps the computer's heat from reaching her. However, when I've used the product I don't find it very comfortable to use on my lap for a long time. The problem appears to be that it has 2 cushions on the bottom with a gap between them. So, depending on where your knees hit, sometimes they end up in-between the cushions, and it's not very comfortable.

    I never thought I would need one of these until I used it, then I was hooked. Not only does it allow you to work on a flat surface wherever you want, but when using it with a laptop, it doesn't matter how hot your computer gets, the lapdesk protects you! It's also great if you are video chatting someone for a long time and you have your computer on your lap.

    Functional Support for Laptops

    Purchased for wife along with a new Samsung laptop computer after several attempts w/ other types of supports w/ her previous computers. She actually uses this one consistently w/ her new computer! I am not sure if it is the padding offered underneath that lets this one sit properly on her legs or what else but all i can state is this pad has not moved from the bottom of her laptop since we brought it home!

    This is a great Lap Desk, it is very comfortable and it keeps me comfortable and cool. I am comfortable that it is very stable and will not let my laptop fall.....it has a nice flat surface with little micro-beads that are very comfortable to my lap and is great to sit on a little stool I have near by that I can watch an ESPN 3 Basketball Game while watch Television......A must buy.

    I bought this for my girlfriend because she always seems to leave her laptop on her bed (which heats up to VERY HOT LEVELS). I kept telling her it wasn't good for the laptop nor the bedsheets, so I finally bought this for her as a small gift. Needless to say.. she uses it all the time everywhere! including her desk and in the kitchen.

    This is a perfect size to hold a Wacom tablet to digitally paint, or for a laptop. However, the surface needs to be more static and less slippery surface. I use it to hold a Wacom tablet pro to digitally paint, so I had to place a thin strip of Velcro near the bottom, and a thin strip on the Wacom tablet so it will grip while I digitally paint.

    Its an ok lap desk, it feels very comfortable it feels good on your legs but the big problems is with the computer sliding out of the lap desk. I have a Macbook pro and it doesn't have a grip. i check my computer at the bottom and its a bit scratch. :( I would recommended if you have no problem with the slide ;) or your computer has a good grip

    Adequate lap desk

    The Lapgear lap desk provides an adequate solution to using a laptop while sitting on the couch - ensuring sufficient cooling. However it would be better if it had a lip or ridge on the bottom edge to keep the laptop from slipping off - it would also make it more practical when used as a writing surface.

    This is a great lap desk to use with your laptop. It has kept my laptop cool and has not gotten hot at all. It is comfortable on your lap and keeps your laptop level. The surface can be a little slippery but is not a big problem if you can keep the lap desk level on your lap or on a flat surface. I am happy with this purchase.

    The desk is comfortable and keeps my lap cool. But, there is no extra room on the desk for anything else. The laptop also sometimes slides on top of the desk because there is nothing to keep in place. But, it makes a great writing desk too. I don't think the lap desk is necessary, but my husband wanted it.

    It works a lot better than the other lapdesk I had. The other one kept losing the little filler beads (and there were no holes in it that I could see) and they were all over the house. This one works great and still has all the "cushyness" on the bottom pad that it had when I bought it.

    A must have if you ever plan to put your laptop on your lap! Keeps your legs and computer from getting hot, although most new computers have a side vent for heat instead of the bottom vents in earlier models. But it is very comfortable when your laptop is on your lap!

    I had a couple previously that were single fabric with beans on the bottom. They were difficult to position at times. This having an open center is much nicer. It even has two zippered pouches underneath.

    We use this Lap Desk for our laptop when we are using the laptop on our bed. It works great on the lap or just sitting laptop on it on the bed. Allows for better ventilation of laptop.

    this lap desk is a great platform for my I mac keyboard, mouse and trackpad. I just wish there was an ability to adjust the angle I currently have to add a prop to get a comfortable working angle.

    Serves it's purpose, but not in the best way.

    My older one is wider and bullt better. It even has a depression where you can put writing utensils. For the price, I would have expected at least the same features, but most important is the size. Hoping for more options the next time.

    I did not buy this, it was a gift. It's for my laptop, and would be better if surface allowed air to circulate so my laptop wouldn't heat up so much. I would recommend this for a lap desk, but not if being used for a laptop.

    My laptop slides right off this thing. It's like it's made out of teflon! I'm going to end up buying another laptop desk but this one is good for the kids to do homework on. Even has a nice groove to put a pen on.

    This item is well built and works well. The pillows are comfortable even in warm weather. I do use a Laptop cooler between the desk and the computer in the summer, however.
