I bought a Lapreader as an adjunct to my newly purchased Apple, 13-inch laptop computer. I was impressed with your stand's design in your catalogue; I am even more impressed with using it in-person!
.
The stand keeps the laptop at a very comfortable angle. The curled bottom rail works well as a wrist-rest. An added benefit is its function as a dolly. My laptop normally resides inside a drop leaf type desk. The Lapreader acts like an aircraft towing tractor ; I "wheel" the laptop in and out of its "hangar" minimizing disruption of power cords, USB cables, etc..
.
My only less than positive criticism concerns the pen and notepad slots in the back vertical member of the stand. The vertical is perpendicular to the desk flat surface. And the pen holes and paper slot are centered and parallel within the vertical. The problem? When fully opened at 135 degrees, the top cover of the laptop PRECLUDES my putting pens in that vertical! By sliding the laptop flush with the left edge of the stand, I can position ONE pen in the right-most pen slot.
.
Constructive suggestion: you could increase the utility of the stand by changing the ANGLE of the pen holes and paper slot. Now they are perpendicular to the desk surface. Is there a way to bore them PARALLEL to the maximum opened angle of a laptop top cover? Or change the angle of the vertical from perpendicular to acute?
.
My uses for a laptop require pen and paper. The stand would be much more helpful to me if I could store several pens or pencils and paper in the vertical. Note: the typical ballpoint pen is 5-3/16 inches in length. I like using ballpoints [like your Tru-Grip, one of my favorite pens and the one I keep in the vertical of the Lapreader! Can your designers review the specs, please?

This item may be fine for computer use -- which is what most reviews cover -- but is not good for reading. Especially for long, heavy hardback books -- the kind you need a lap desk for -- this product is totally insufficient. The book lies almost flat in your lap, not tilted up to be read. When I tried to return it I find I must pay about 25% of the purchase price for return shipping. This is the only company I deal with that does not provide some sort of low cost return label. This is the last time I will buy from Levenger.

I bought the Lapreader for my wife, but I use it myself at least 5 hours a day!!! It is great, and I can see I'll need to buy another one for my wife.

What an awesome lap desk!

By 

from Mid-Atlantic, USA

Site Member

I LOVE this lapreader/lap desk. I use it for my laptop or tablet, as well as reading, and love the removable round cushion to be able to hold a book or my planner in the curved edge, or have it above the curved edge with the cushion. Genius!
It is very comfortable on my lap, too! Too soft cushions often get bunchy in your lap after awhile or have a material that can make you hot, but not this one! Even with my touchiness at times with Fibromyalgia, I can still use this lapreader. The pen/pencil and notepad holders make keeping those readily available and I am not having to find them on the floor. Totally awesome overall! I bought THREE of these for all of us in the house. Even OCD/discerning hubby liked it and said it was very well constructed. If we have guests and can spare one of these for the guest room, our guest(s) will be able to use it also. If you think this is too expensive, sign up for the sales and wait for one of them - you won't be disappointed!

I use this Lapreader everyday with my laptop. Laptop fits perfectly. Love that the laptop sits on a slant to better access the keyboard. This Lapreader is well-designed and well-built.

I use this mostly when sitting or in bed with my laptop. It provides a stable work surface and keeps my laptop at the correct angle. It keeps my lap cool and is made of a nice quality bamboo. It is well-designed and well-built.

Perfect Size and feel for 15 in Laptop

By 

from Pennsylvania

Site Member

After thoroughly researching lap desks, I am so pleased that I purchased this one. It is lightweight and sits very comfortably on my lap. It adds a sturdiness to my typing and sits just right, so I don't need to cross my legs to lift it to the right height anymore. I love the pen and paper slot. Perfect for those little notes and always have a pen handy. My cord nestles easily into the pen slot, when not plugged in. The laptop and desk sit nicely on a side table when not in use. So easy to pick up together as a unit after I sit down. Well worth the money!

great quality

By

I was so pleasantly surprised when I received this lapreader. I use a large Kindle and it fits perfectly and still allows plenty of room on the side to take notes. The foam holder for my pen makes it perfect. It's so much more comfortable than propping my book on pillows and having pad and pen on the sofa. It's very well made with quality products and details. I loved mine so much I got one for my real estate friend who has held her iPad for years. She loves it too!
