A question for you ROADWARRIORS out there!!!

by SandTiger / August 21, 2005 4:14 PM PDT

Tired of getting 'hot legs' and having to keep adjusting my laptop as it slides around or is not even. I like to work on my chair or couch (even when I'm sitting at my desk) and keeping the laptop on my legs is really annoying.

Anyone tried a good product that solves this problem?

I'm new to the laptop world, my new job will have me traveling a lot, so any other gadgets that make life easier for you road warriors out there?

your help and wisdom is greatly appreciated. =)

See for lapdesk examples (those in $20 range)

Targus is by all means not necessarily the best site in all instances but they do have a lapdesk in the $20 range which has worked well for many. I use the Targus Podium Coolpad on a table all the time to keep the notebook keyboard at an angle (more like a desktop keyboard) and to allow maximum airflow under the notebook.

Note that Target and some other retail stores (Office Depot) carry some Targus products (also Fry's Electronics) but not all so look at the website for initial comparison.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
