NOT for reading!
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.

This solved my problem for a study, comfortable laptop stand. I enjoy doing art projects on my laptop and this was just what I needed. So handy to have a place that holds my various stylus, too.

Needed to get my laptop elevated on both my desk and lap. This does the trick. Nicely stable, good looking, easily portable. I got it during the December sale so I was happy with the price. No complaints here.

Versatile and attractive
I've been contemplating this purchase for a long time and I'm glad I finally took the plunge! I love the look of the bamboo, the way the desk sits firmly on my lap or the table, the storage in the back (I've stopped losing my pens!), and the ability to adjust the laptop angle with the small roll pillow. My only improvements would be to offer some different colors and to make the back slot wide enough to hold my TV remote....

A Lovely Gift!
I ordered this product as a gift for a colleague and she loved it! It looks really great and she was thrilled to receive a gift so suited to her style. The pen holders are very useful!

Solid and Stable
I exchanged the Laplander Desk which has a very "mushy"glass bead bottom cushion that was very unstable with my laptop for the Nantucket Lapreader. Best decision I made! The Nantucket Lapreader is perfect for my laptop and tablet due it its solid stable construction and very comfortable cushion.

I bought this for my husband, and he loves it. When he is not using it, I steal it away & use it as well. It arrived well packed and in good shape, and has held up well. We love the bamboo, and he likes that the vents keep his laptop cooler.

I just got this lap desk a few months ago and 2 of the slats that the computer rests on have already cracked and broken. It doesn't affect how it works, but I expected better for the price.

Love My Lapdesk
I do a lot of work with my MacBookAir in my lap, and although it never feels particularly hot, over time I thought I might be hurting myself. As I feared, the cushion also got warm, so I don't use it, but the desk without the cushion works great and I am no longer aware of the heat. The part that rests on my knees is solid and sturdy. I think with a simpler form, like the Nantucket, I might feel that it was balanced precariously. I don't feel that way at all.
