LapDawg Laptop Stand
We covered Belkin laptop accessories in January and appreciated the fact that its designers had taken into consideration the needs of home laptop users. To further heat up the competition in this segment comes a new entrant - the LapDawg Laptop Stand. The company behind the product claims that the lapdawg is "designed to change the way our body interacts with laptop computers by simply holding our laptops to a more comfortable, natural angle." Essentially, with this stand, you can comfortably use your laptop, without the use of your hands or laps to prop it up, while in bed or outdoors or any such traditionally unconventional laptop position.
The Lapdawg (I would have personally preferred a less canine sounding name) is made out of durable yet light-weight wood. The stand weighs only 1.5 lbs and that's a big plus. Moreover, in the looks department, it scores very well with its classy mahogany finish. If you are not in the mood to work on your laptop while in bed, you can also use it as a book holder or a bed tray. The best part, for a mobile person like me, is that you can just collapse it and stash it in your travel bag with the least fuss. All this comes at a premium cost though - a cool $99.99 (includes shipping).
