To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It's alright but if there were better alternatives I would go for them instead. The plastic top curves easily and as a result I have to be careful to support it by the edges. Pressure on the middle results in blocked laptop vents which defeats the whole purpose.
Also, the beads are Styrofoam and although they might theoretically be recyclable, that's clearly not going to happen. So a lot of waste will be produced. Considering using a hard bamboo cutting board and attaching a cushion to it instead :/
I purchased this for my grandmother and she loves it. She didn't like how hot her laptop made her legs to I got her this. She said it's comfortable and much cooler than having the laptop sit directly on your legs. It's fairly small though. She has a medium side laptop and the phone holder is covered so I think 12 - 13" laptop is the biggest you could use if you want to use the phone holder but otherwise fits a 15" laptop just fine but with the phone slit covered.
If you have an older Thinkpad (like a W520), you're not gonna enjoy using this thing. Especially if you sit on a low surface like a futon, only propped up by a pillow as I do.
This lap desk is far too tall for that. My lap makes for a better desk than this thing when I slouch down on my bed, which defeats the entire purpose of this product, but oh well.
Anyway, my Thinkpad sits awkwardly on this thing. It's snug, but the battery juts out at the back. When I take the lap desk with laptop off my lap and put it beside me on the bed, the whole thing tilts back. Which makes using it on the bed while laying down next to it impossible. Again, it would be easier to just put the laptop directly on the bed; at least it won't tip backwards.
Oh, and there's a gross sticky portion near the top of this lap desk. Somehow adhesive got on it and created a disgusting sticky spot. Yuck. I did my best to scrub it off using rubbing alcohol but even that didn't work. So I'm guessing this thing is made of of awful, cheap plastic that you should not stick anything onto.
I suppose this thing is only useful to me if I'm sitting on a couch upright. Which defeats the whole point of this product for me because I want to use it on my bed.
This laptop cushion is well designed, comfortable and much more attractive than I expected for the price. My MBP fits perfectly into the small retainers so it can't slide around on the tray, and my phone has a sturdy and convenient "home". The black top surface has a nice feel to it and the cushion is comfy. This is excellent value for money!
I've used this thing for a few months and I absolutely love it. But unfortunately the cushion filling is starting to flatted out and it's not as comfortable as it used to be. They need to make a more durable filling.
It is just perfect: It is light, sturdy, just big enough and comfortable. The slot for the cell phone is practical as well as the anti-slip rubber strip. For me, It's not essential to have but it's one of these little things that once you use it you do see a difference.
