LapLander with Ledge
I too at first thought that the cushion was over filled until my toddler decided to use it as a stepping stool. That is when I noticed that the cushion with time, a couple of days, kind of molds itself to fit your lap just right. I love it and use it daily. My only problem was that the open slots for the slings were a bit sharp at first but I notice that even those seem to dull over time. It's beautiful and very well crafted. I can place my Circa letter size notebook and my IPad or Microsoft surface on it side by side which makes my writing and research a breeze. I love your products.

I recently got rid of my computer workstation to help in reducing space in my new one bedroom apartment. I connected my computer to the TV, When using the keyboard and having pens and paper all over the center piece was not very organized and leaning over to type was hard on my back. I did some research and found this lap desk @ levenger.com with great reviews. The reviews were accurate and love my new lap desk. A great quality product that has helped me organize my space better, relieve back pain and transition to a relax couch workstation environment...

Purchased this lap desk as a gift for my upcoming middle schooler because she likes to sit on our sofa to write her papers and do her homework. It is of beautiful quality and the elastic straps are so handy for holding pencils. Originally purchased the Levenger Lap desk because of the nice size, but she is accustomed to a cushion underneath, so exchanged it for this. Only problem is, the cushion is not flat or "squishy" enough to mold to your legs to keep it nice and secure. It is hard, round and small and falls off your lap! We will have to fashion another cushion for it to work. The big Levenger one needs a nice cushion option, then we'd be happy! Will keep the Laplander, though :) Please fix the cushion and add a cushion option to the Levenger.

Great multi-funtion lapdesk
I debated between this and the Levenger Lap Desk and am so happy that I selected this one since you are not tethered to a chair armrest. This is more versatile and can be used anywhere, table, chair, sofa, bed and the best feature is the detachable pillow - if you want to balance it on crossed legs. With the pillow it gives you the right height and support no matter where you decide to work. Large enough for a 17" laptop, and also useful as a reading, writing and iPad surface. I love the elastic straps to hold misc items especially the one with 2 pen loops built in.
The ledge is handy as no worries about papers or tech gear sliding off. Easy to carry handle and very attractive in the natural cherry. The size is perfect for an array of activities and even using a laptop there is still room for a mouse and papers. LOVE this and didn't realize how handy it would be until I began using it. It is also perfect for those times that you just don't feel like sitting at your desk and still want to be productive. I didn't know how easily I could work (comfortably) on my sofa or in bed, before this. My only quibble (minor) is that I wish the cushion was offered in black with the natural cherry finish but I do like the lighter wood color. As always another quality Levenger item

I found it very comfortable to use. It works well with my iPad, Kindle and book.

Not What I Expected
Unfortunately I cannot match to positive reviews of this product. It works alright. However, using as a true lap desk vs. having the sides touching arm rests on a chair proves cumbersome. The desk is large and unwieldy and the padded cushion is overfilled so makes the desk wobbly. I cannot adjust it to a comfortable position. Also the ledge - which is good for holding an iPad in place makes writing a challenge. My wrist rubs against the ledge and I need to turn my pad of paper on an angle to write - thus making me have to hold it in place. The desk looks very attractive but overall it does not serve the purposes for which it was purchased.

High Quality Lap Desk
I was searching for a lap desk to replace an older lap desk (different brand) that had belonged to my mother. While using the older lap desk to prepare taxes, I had my calculator and pens roll off and my laptop slide off. Then I discovered the Laplander Lap Desk. The lap desk provides a large work area, has straps to hold my pens and calculator, a ledge to prevent my laptop from sliding, and a shape that is comfortable! The cushion, however, is small and much too high. With the cushion attached, the lab desk was so high that my laptop computer keyboard was at an uncomfortable level. In addition, I had to hold onto the lap desk when using my computer to keep the lap desk level. I tried to reshape the cushion without success. When I let go of the lap desk to pick up a document next to me that I needed, the lap desk and my laptop computer flipped off my lap. I caught both before they hit the floor. When this happened again later, I removed the cushion! I suggest replacing the cushion with a larger and flatter cushion. If no change is made to the cushion, I would recommend the lap desk for small and lightweight laptops. My laptop is a 15-inch model. I went back to reread the product description. Although the detailed description mentions laptops, the bottom line in boldface mentions only tablets and books.

Great product, one small request.
Ours is a Levenger household and I have even brought Levenger to my office. Several years ago, our daughter received the Laplander desk. Hers came with a thick but evenly flat cushion. Later I ordered one for myself and a few months later ordered one for my husband. Both of ours came with thicker black leather cushions. For us, the cushion is a bit too thick and doesn't seem flat enough in that the desk rocks a bit on the lap. Will this stop me from using it and loving it? No. But I wish that Levenger would make additional cushions that one could purchase. This would allow the user to "customize" the desk to his or her preference. Thank you Levenger for the good quality of all of your products. If I could rate this four and three quarters stars, I would do that. Not quite a five, but not troublesome enough to be a four.

Great buy, better service
I purchased the Laplander so that I could do more work away from the desk. This product is perfect for what I need. I not only would recommend this product, I've already done so to the person who introduced me to Levenger. This is a fantastic buy, and is well worth the price. It is actually much lighter than I'd expected, yet sturdier than I'd anticipated as well.

Very Good for Bedtime Reading and Writing
As stated in the title, the Laplander lap desk is very good for reading and writing in bed, or on a lounger. The table is just the right size, and the pillow is removable.
