    Excellent Investment

    I purchased this for my mom and she absolutely loves it. She has a 17" laptop, which I knew when purchasing this model was going to be a tight fit, but after researching a variety of different lap desks there was no doubt this was the one. I've used it a few times also and after finishing up this review will be purchasing one for myself as well (I have an 11.6" laptop). You can't go wrong with this lap desk! ***Please note as some other reviewers have also stated, the color of the lap desk in the photos looks blue, but it is in fact purple.

    Decent Lap Desk

    I am satisfied with my lap desk because I use my laptop most of the time sitting on the couch. The lap desk keeps me from feeling the heat after I've been using my laptop for awhile. I also use it for writing at times. It has a piece on the front that is suppose to keep your laptop from sliding forward, but it doesn't work so well & I have an ultra book which is super thin, so if it cannot keep that from sliding, I doubt it would keep a normal size laptop from sliding. The handle is convenient moving it from place to place. Bottom line... I needed something to put my laptop on while using it sitting in bed, on the couch etc. and for that, it fits the bill.

    I bought this item for my girlfriend for Xmas and she loves it. Originally neither of us were overly excited about it because it's just not one of those big ticket items that get big reactions under the tree, but recently she has been using it a lot and has expressed her appreciation more than once. This item is indeed very good for keeping a hot laptop off of your legs while on the couch or in bed. She has also used it with her nook, but again, some laptops become very uncomfortably hot and the hard surface and padding keeps her comfortable and insulated while using the computer. At $30 this is a good buy.

    I bought this laptop pad because I was playing a lot of World of Warcraft and my laptop would overheat to the point of almost burning my legs! I do not have a nice gaming laptop, just a basic Dell, so this has helped a lot with the ventilation issues. I can be on my laptop for hours without it overheating and it hasn't gotten too hot since I've had this product! Definitely recommend to any gamers who use laptops!

    I really like this laptop desk. It is comfortable and conforms to my lap well. I still had the problem of my laptop overheating even on the laptop desk, but I think that it was because the rubber feet fell of and the cooling vents were unable to move air. I use it all the time with my Macbook Pro and it holds the computer steady on my lap. It works great and is worth the cost, although I still think it could cost a little less.

    The lapdesk is a nice flat surface for the laptop.

    I like the nice flat surface so the laptop sits level. The bar at the bottom keep's it from sliding down if it's on your lap. You don't feel any heat from the bottom of the computer no matter how long you have been on the laptop. I also, love the handle it makes it easy to move around with or take to another room. I really like the soft bottom and very pleased with my purchase.

    I basically bought this for my wife,but I have begun to enjoy it also. It is easy to take with me because of the convenient handle. The small bar on the front keeps my laptop from sliding down onto my lap. My wife has been looking for another one but in the color pink. But that doesn't keep her from using mine. Thanks But it would be great to find her one in pink and surprise her with it.

    I bought this to use in bed in anticipation of my gallbladder surgery last month, so I didn't have to balance my iPad on my stomach while lying down. I'd been eyeing up this lapdesk for a few months, but it just felt like the right time to buy it. The color is gorgeous - a lovely shade of metallic blue and glittery to boot, and is very sturdy. I'm very happy with this purchase!

    The best lap desk so far

    I've tried a few different lap desks for my computer. Most don't have enough padding which causes the desk to create pressure in wrong places. This one doesn't let the fill shift around to where it causes that problem. It's a good size and shaped well. The only thing slightly off about it is the high gloss finish that leads to glare at times.

    Excellent lap desk for your laptop

    I have a widescreen laptop and it easily fits on this lap desk. I get so many compliments on the design of the lap desk. Not only is this lap desk attractive; it's functional and keeps my laptop cool (as it should be#. No more hard drive crashes #fingers crossed) with this lap desk. I give the lap desk two thumbs way up.

    Great price and product is very sturdy made. I like that it is curved in the front. The bad is I find it to small to be able to use my wireless mouse on it unless I have the laptop hang off the one end of it about 3 to 4 inches. It would be great for someone who uses the mouse that is on the laptop itself though.

    We just got our first laptop and found that the bottom gets very warm after using it for awhile. This lap desk is so great for keeping that heat off your legs. It's just the right size and can be used for many other things as well such as when reading a book or playing cards. Those are just two examples. We just love this thing.

    Keeps lap and laptop cool. Big enough for laptop and mouse (if you use one), unless you have a larger 17" screen. Comfortable and sturdy. Can also use for writing surface and as a snack tray. It even has a handle to carry it with you. I have three of them scattered about the house and family members use them al the time.

    Best product for the price. Fits comfortably on your lap and holds anything from your laptop to your smartphone. The cushion underneath keeps it in place while lounging in bed and raises the height of anything you put on it to a comfortable height. Stores easily on a nighstand or endtable for easy access.

    I love this lap desk. I use it at home while sitting on the couch with my laptop. It lifts the laptop so it's at a more comfortable level and is comfortable on my legs. I had a different one where the pad didn't cover the whole bottom and it cut into my legs. This one doesn't do that and it's very comfortable.

    Good for a 15", a bit tight for a 17"

    Bought this for my wife for Christmas but tried it out on my 17". It fits but is a bit tight and no room for an external mouse.....just FYI. Fits the 15" laptop no problem but still little room for an external mouse so just keep that in mind if it is important to you.

    I primarily use it with my laptop and it allows me to use the computer a lot longer in comfort. Keeps my lap cool while also positioning the laptop at a more comfortable level for typing. I could have spent a lot more for the same comfort and functional performance.

    I am able to use by Surface 2 anywhere since I carry my own table top to place it on. The top of the lap desk is easy to clean. The padded bottom is comfortable on my lap and does not get hot sitting there for hours at a time. Love the light weight and ample topside to work on.

    The lap buddy was a great buy for use with my laptop. I can place both on my lap and see the screen as well as not hurt myself typing on it. It is soft and cool and is great for when I can not get off the couch or out of bed but need to do work on the computer.

    I use this on my lap so that I can have my tablet open and write notes at the same time. This gives me plenty of space. It is also quite comfortable on my lap because the cushion on the bottom has just enough "give" to keep this Lap-desk from sliding.
