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
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!

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!

Great Reading Aid
The Nantucket Lapreader is beautifully made and a pleasure to use. It is comfortable on my lap and holds my book in the perfect position.

The Nantucket line is one of my favorites!
I have purchased one Nantucket product after another because they function well and are attractive. I do not find the lap reader to be hard on my legs as other reviewers have stated. I wouldn't change a thing and in fact, have to keep moving it back to my study when it is borrowed by other family members. Great purchase. Also own the other Nantucket pillow-bottom lap reader which I use for my iPad, laptop or letter writing in front of the TV.

Lap desk perfect!
Bought this as an inclined writing surface for my junior planner at work. Ordering a second for the house. It is perfect in size and comfort. Love it!!

Designed for a laptop...
This is a beautiiful item and seems well made (early complaints about the computer sliding under the curve have been resolved by the inclusion of a blue roll cushion).
One concern is stability. At one point the laptop slid off and fell on the floor (the laptop does still work, fortunately). A large woodworker's rubber band now holds the laptop to the desk (between the cushion and the desk) and prevents it from sliding around. It works well, but does not go very will with the design!
Not useful for reading because of the angle. Flip legs in the left and right back would be helpful, or perhaps a hinge along the back of the desk.

I was replacing a long-owned laptop desk and thought this looked good in the catalogue. The quality is disappointing for the price. My previous one had a soft cushion, and this one is very hard. The wood at the front end cuts into my leg. My laptop computer hangs over the side edges. It seems I need something with a combination of the mini, the larger uncushioned board, and this one. Wish I could design my own!

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.
