This Laplander has some background...a few years ago (2008 0r 2009) I bought several Laplanders to give my teenage granddaughters and one for myself, all of them with monograms. I had another one that dated even earlier. I thought that the Laplander is a great design and I still think it is today. I love it. However, my Laplander cushion, which is attached with Velcro strips, is now dangling from the Laplander because the adhesive that attaches the Velcro strip to the Laplander surface has dried out.On November 9, I called Levenger's Customer Service and explained the problem to the Levenger rep. What I meant to do, was to ask L whether L could fix the Laplander. To my complete (and delighted) surprise the L rep said that L will send me a new Laplander (monogramed as well) and to return the old Laplander in the box, prepaid to FedEx.Four days later, the Laplander arrived.Now, my comments....the new Laplander has a ledge at the bottom, a very welcome addition. I use the Laplander to work with a laptop, iPad or a keyboard and the ledge helps a great deal. The kidney shape is also very handy. Overall, the Laplander is a great accessory, it is light weight and with the cushion is very comfortable. But, I have to sound a note of caution....the Velcro attachment may (repeat, may) dry out over time, as it did to my old Laplander. Only time will tell. Meanwhile, I will enjoy it again. I rated the "quality" at 3 stars for the Velcro weakness...everything else is 5 stars.One final comment, I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the Levenger Customer Service. BRAVO, Levenger, WELL DONE!

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.

Useful, pretty, puffy
This lap desk is very attractive. The ledge (which seems to be rare in lap desks) is very useful, as are the elastic bands with pen loops. The supporting pillow is a little too puffy for my preference, but as someone else mentioned, the bag of microfiber beads could be replaced with batting. I plan to cut a small slit in the bag to let some of the beads out, then sew it back up.All in all, I'm pleased I got it on sale; not sure that I would have paid full price.

This is a great lap desk which was totally made better by the price!! I have never been disappointed by ANY Levenger purchase!!
I can use this in a chair or sitting in bed. It is light and sturdy, and my tablet rests securely.
Love this lap desk
from Baker, LA
I love the size and features on this lap desk. I like to sit in my favorite chair to take care of any correspondence that is needed. I like the straps that hold your pens and envelopes so that there is no need to keep picking them up off of the floor.
Best Lap Desk I've Ever Used
from Santa Fe, NM
...and over the years I've had many!This is a perfect size. The lip is a great idea, for some reason none of my previous lap desks have had one.The elastic straps are the best idea ever! If I am working on a project that requires me to shuffle papers, the papers stay handy and organized. And pens never roll off the desk and disappear into the cosmos as mine often do.I note that some reviewers were not happy with the cushion. I have no problem with it. It doesn't slide around on my lap and is quite comfortable. However, I do have a suggestion for those who find it less than perfect The cushion has a zipper. Just remove the existing pad and replace it with pillow stuffing that you can find at most discount stores (e.g. Walmart) or any craft store. Pillow stuffing will allow you to make the cushion softer, easier to shape to your lap,and adjust the height (thickness) to your taste (and it's cheap too!).
from Richmond, VA
This is exactly what I was looking for. It is larger than other lap desks. The re-positional pillow allows for greater flexibility, However, this is also why I knocked it one star on function. I think they should have included more positions for attaching the pillow; but this is easily resolved by adding more VelcroI use it for my Surface Pro 2 and Dell 15.6'' laptop and for each there is room for the mouse..
from South Bend
I purchased this for husband. He loves it. He uses it for his laptop. The padding is comfortable. My 12 year old nephew enjoyed using it to rest his IPAD on to play games. Good purchase and it looks nice too.
I have an earlier version of this item which is far superior. That version has a non-detachable cushion which is not as puffy and more completely covers the backside of the lap desk , making it much more comfortable. In addition, I find the front lip too low for many uses. All-in-all, this has been a disappointment.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

versatile lap desk
I wanted to be able to write and use my laptop comfortably with extra height to avoid pressure on neck and head. This desk does it all and with care serves as a tray for snacks in a pinch. Looks good, works beautifully.
