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.
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.
I bought this because I like to watch movies on my laptop in bed. I need a hard surface so my computer doesn't overheat. This was an excellent find and worth the money. Unfortunately, within a day the rubber grip started peeling off so I had to use a stronger glue to secure it.
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 very thin and could use some more “stuffing”. I guess I should have expected that for the price. You only get what you pay for, so in that case, it is pretty good. Also, I would prefer the raised bit to only be at the bottom.
