The Good Lightweight; works as both a lapdesk and a laptop stand.

The Bad Custom colors cost too much; no room for mousing.

The Bottom Line The latest from Lapworks, the Futura Laptop Desk, does effective double duty on the lap or desk, but we miss the room for mousing that earlier versions had.

Laptops are designed, theoretically, to sit comfortably on a lap, a desk, a coffee table, or any place we need easy access to a computer. In reality, we're often at the mercy of overheated systems, non-ergonomic angles, and wobbly knees. This leads people to use a variety of methods to get their laptops propped up the way they like them, from laptop desks, to pillows and pads, to little rubber feet.

One option is the $29.99 LapWorks Futura Laptop Desk (ours added an optional paint job for a total of $49). We've previously looked at--and liked--the LapWorks UltraLite and Laptop Desk 2.0 models. This new model is substantially similar, made of plastic and hinged in the middle.
