Tooling around the house with a notebook these days still leaves something to be desired. It’s fine during the winter months, when I don’t mind the extra heat, but it can be a drag during a hot summer day. Logitech’s new Portable Lapdesk N315 might be of help. The $29.99 rectangular slab provides a flat work surface while protecting your privates from the tropical temps of a hot device. As if that weren’t enough, the Logitech N315 has a slide-out mouse pad if you’re opposed to trackpads.
These days I only use my lapdesk solution with a netbook and that’s more due to the size of the device. I’m finding that standard notebooks sit pretty well on my lap, but the smaller base of a netbook doesn’t. What’s the consensus out there: play it safe and smart with a lapdesk or go crazy with a computer right on your lap?
