Portable Laptop Desks That Actually Work

Having a computer on top of your lap while you binge watch TV is as common nowadays as wiping your butt after you poo. It’s something that is second nature to us all, however, it comes with some annoyances. After a while the laptop overheats which can lead to malfunction of the computer or overheating of your body.

For those who prefer a mouse while using a computer, having it sit directly on top of your legs leaves no space for the mouse to function. This is where the genius of a laptop desk comes into play.

Portable Laptop desks provide much-needed comfort to both adults and children. They aid in the functionality of things such as:

  • Air circulation for the hardware of the computer
  • Space and surface area for people to keep important work items such as a notebook and pen
  • Hard surface for a mouse to move around
  • Ideal positioning of the computer to the body so people can practice proper body posture while typing and web surfing
  • Positioning the computer to ideal eye level so people aren’t ruining their eyesight
  • Help with cable management
  • Place to set your phone so you can have dual work devices going at once

Portable work stations can be used on your lap in front of the TV or even on top of your desk at work. If you travel they can be very beneficial for getting work done at the airport or on the train. Don’t do work that requires a computer? No worries, they can still benefit you when watching TV or in the kitchen when you have to follow a recipe via Pinterest.

Let’s dive into a few of my favorite workstation desktops below, and perhaps you will find one that suits all of your needs as well! What are you waiting for? Scroll on down Linda, you know you’re interested.

Portable Desk 

Bamboo Stand This product is like the magician who keeps pulling rabbits out of his ass, I mean hat.

At first glance, you will notice the overall product used to make this is bamboo. What might be interesting for you to know is that it is %100 bamboo, which means it’s better for the environment and will last longer than portable laptop stations made from plastic.

Legs are wide enough to stand on multiple surfaces, even soft ones like the couch, recliner or bed. Table height is adjustable with knobs you will find on the legs themselves.

A unique feature you will find with this product is the ability to adjust the tilt degree of the table top itself which means you can adjust the screen any way your little heart desires. You like your laptop tilted with a nice little slant for your keyboard, boom that’s possible.

On the right-hand side is a small drawer that is kept close via a magnet, so the drawer won’t’ open while you readjust your butt cheeks. The surface above that has a built-in cup holder so you can set your cup down in confidence knowing it won’t spill onto your lap.

The left-hand side has two built-in fan holes to keep your computer nice and chill.

Lap Desk 

Lap DeskUnlike the previous products we went over, this little guy sits directly on top of your lap.

Dual bolster cushions allow this portable lap desk to sit on any leg shape comfortably and steadily by adapting to the surface it is put on, or in this case the leg it is put on.

A wrist pad lines the bottom of this which is multifunctional; it keeps your laptop from sliding and works as a nice wrist cushion for typing.

A few built-in options are found on top that includes a built-in mouse pad, pen holder, phone holder, and tablet holder.

The only thing you won’t find wit this product is a built-in fan hole to help cool your computer down. A simple fix to this would be putting the bottom of your computer on top of the wrist cushion or putting an extra cushion in the back tablet holder, as to create your own ramp which would allow airflow.
