lapvantage-loft.jpgIf you’re like me, you use your MacBook/PowerBook on a desk connected to an external monitor and keyboard. The problem with this setup has been what to do with the notebook computer on the desk. Perching your notebook on a desk makes it too low to see effectively and also makes it run hot due to inadequate airflow below the unit.
This problem has spawned a cottage industry of podium stands for notebook computers that are used on desks. Back in 2002 I wrote about the Lapvantage Dome which I used on my desk exclusively until yesterday when I replaced it with an updated version, the Lapvantage Loft (US$80).
The Lapvantage Loft is an ergonomic laptop stand that supports up to 15 pounds and fits most notebooks with 15-inch displays. Other notebooks will also fit although they may hang off the sides slightly.
The Loft is available with either a black or a silver pedestal and the polished acrylic platform is available in either blue, clear or white. Pictured above is the silver/blue configuration. The Loft is different from the Dome model in that it leaves space underneath the platform for storage of things like keyboards and other desk clutter. A built-in swivel base rotates 360 degrees for easy screen sharing.
The Lapvantage Loft is extremely ergonomic, looks cool and will clean up the look of your desk in a hurry.
