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 up to 15 inch laptops, Macbook Pro & Macbook Air (both 13 inches and smaller), iPads, small keyboards, and regular writing in paper notebooks. The Grifiti Travel Deck 15 does all you need with a simple design: A rigid, lightweight aluminum plate sandwiched in soft non-skid textured neoprene. The plate provides the support you need. The grippy neoprene has great traction to keep your notebook or iPad in place and provides an effective insulation layer against toasty hot laptops. You won't get any nasty laptop skin burns when you properly use our Decks. At 15 x 10 x 0.35 inches and a little over 1 lb. (that’s just about .46 kg’s) it’s small and light enough to stuff in your bag and take with you. Then again, power users might buy a couple of these to keep one at work and one at home.
p.s. Check out our other Deck sizes (Travel Deck 12 and Travel Deck 13) and our Grifiti Deck + Wrist Pad Combos, Platform Wrist Pads, which combine one of our Decks with a Fat Wrist Pad or a Slim Wrist Pad for even more functionality!
