LapGear Smart Media Laptop Desk Review

If you have a laptop like I do, then you know how hard it is to work on it if you are sitting on the couch or anywhere else for that matter if you aren't at a desk or table. I was so very grateful to get the opportunity to review The Smart Media Desk from LapGear. I love how rich looking the wood part is because it makes it look expensive and nice! It looks like you can get it in Black also if you don't like the maple grain.

Product Description:

  • Perfect for tablets, smart phones, eReaders and laptops
  • Media slot holds tablets and eReaders firmly in place
  • Grip pad keeps phone from slipping off desk and in the perfect place for quick access while working or gaming
  • Ergonomic wrist pads support wrists while typing
  • MDF wood finish w/ wrist rests and phone pad
  • 100% Polyester
  • 100% Polystyrene Foam Beads
  • 19" x 3.0" x 14.75"( For hands free use with ALL eReaders, Tablets and Laptop computers.)

  • They also have a 90 Day Limited Warranty that will guarantee:

    Against defects in manufacturing and workmanship. This warranty does not, however, apply to items subjected to excessive wear, abuse, or physical damage whether accidental or otherwise.

    Now, the only thing that I had to do because I am usually sitting up in my recliner when I am on my laptop and the computer tends to fall down so I got some of those grip holders like you use to open cans and jars and placed one on each side of the Smart Media Laptop Desk and it works perfectly. I would think you could use anything but I thought of these because they are the same on both sides so it works against the wood and against the computer to keep it also in place!

    This is the backside of the desk which will go up against your lap. It's pretty thick and my old one was also so I never had any problems associated with this heavy thing being on me. Plus having Fibromyalgia and RA doesn't help so I need all the cushion I can get! You will be very pleased with how this feels. 

    As you can see, it's pretty portable and can go just about anywhere that you go. You will also notice that the man in the picture has his cell phone right next to him. Underneath that is a velco like material that holds onto your phone.

    LapGear has quite a few models to choose from if this one isn't to your liking. They have products that can hold almost all of your electronics right within easy grasp. Since I don't have to worry about things like that, my Smart Media Laptop Desk is exactly what I needed! They even have Pillow Tablets for those of you who need one of those.

    I still use a cheap one so I should look around for an update. I'm sure some of these have gone down in price. Mine has a place to carry it and it has sort of a bean bag pillow on the bottom. Not much to look at but it's functional.

    Constantly being on laptops is also affecting our health in more ways than one. This is why laptop desks come in handy -
