Ultrathin, Simple Lap Desks for Macbooks, laptops, small keyboards, and writing. We use notebooks and iPads around the office and at home and couldn’t find a simple lap desk or platform that offered the performance and mobility we need at a fair price. We don't like the "cooling" decks that have fans (what's the point?) or speakers (really...this is a tray, not a stereo), but we do like the idea of protecting our laps from excessive heat (just in case). We decided we didn't want to use plastics and we wanted materials that would allow us to make a variety of sizes fairly easily. Ultrathin was a big issue for us as well so we dumped padded pillows, too. It's meant for small laptops, Macbook Pro & Macbook Air (both 13 inches and smaller), iPads, small keyboards, and regular writing in paper notebooks.
