Stand and Deliver

Posted Feb. 28, 2008
If you use a laptop as your primary computer, chances are you’re spending a lot of time straining your neck when you peer down at your too low screen. That’s why laptop stands exist: to raise your screen to ergonomically correct eye level. When used with a separate keyboard, a laptop perched on a stand can be as comfortable to use as a desktop computer. The new LapWorks Attaché Laptop Stand does double-duty by not only elevating your screen, but potentially extending the life of your laptop by keeping it from overheating. It’s got four different height settings, a heat-dissipating concave aluminum faceplate, and two virtually silent built-in cooling fans that are powered from your laptop’s USB port. It’s also got a four-port USB 2.0 hub, so you can keep more stuff—printer, iPod, PDA, digital camera, whatever—connected to your laptop all at once.
