I find an L-shaped work surface to be very useful, and I didn't have one. I was always having to move my laptop out of the way so I could use my desk to work on, and vice versa when I needed my laptop. So I ordered this laptop cart and now have the equivalent of an L-shaped work surface. I use it every day at the office. The wheels work just fine, so when I need to get up from my desk I just roll the cart away to give me the room I need. The cart arrived sooner than I expected, and even I was able to put it together. Directions were pretty easy - I often have trouble with stuff like that. Parts and hardware were very clearly numbered and lettered. The only things I wish were different are 1) wish I had a few in-between-what-is-there height settings; perfect for me would be right between two of the options; 2) it's a bit wobbly - when I'm typing a lot and quickly, the desk wobbles. Neither of these are huge problems. I like it!
For the money, this is an excellent buy. I'm an elderly Lady, and I put it together my self. The instructions and hardware is really made simple. Good weight, not flimsy. I should get years of good serviced.
I had seen these lap desks previously on the net but I could never find a UK supplier. As soon as I saw this one on the Overstock site I ordered it. I recently bought a Samsung netbook and had been using a lap tray (the sort you have your dinner on) as a desk. I prefer to sit in my armchair when surfing the net. However the lap tray was pretty small and there was little room to move my mouse. This lapdesk is brilliant. The curved shape means I can pull it in far closer to my body and the space I have on the top surface is huge. It fits neatly between the arms of my chair, I have detached the pull out mouse pad thingy as it would make it too wide. However with my netbook being so small I have tons of mousing room. One thought. The photo of the lap desk on the Overstock site seems to show a silver mousepad, Should one have been included in my delivery? No matter as I would not be using it anyway. I like the idea that the cushion underneath is removable. It seems to be velcro'd on. Overall I love it. It is nicely made, has lovely round edges and fits the bill perfectly. Nice one.
I tried three different laptop "desks" including the plastic types with built-in cooling fans only to find them unstable and uncomfortable. This high quality wooden lap top desk is sturdy and comfortable. The bottom cushion is attached with Velcro and can be easily removed for cleaning. This lap desk of course does not include cooling fans but none are required with most newer laptops due to relocation of laptop air inlets/outlets to allow better cooling by internal fans. This desk also functions as an excellent portable desk for work or crafts... especially great for kids during road trips.
