The Comfort Lapdesk, from Logitech isn’t what I’d exactly call an innovative product but it’s European design makes it one of the more attractive laptop lap desks. The base of the Lapdesk is finished in a sturdy cotton like material while the desk portion is composed of a hard plastic. The space between the two pieces is vented and worked without flaw to keep the laptops heat dispersed and away from the ‘family jewels’.
After extensive use, though, my opinion of the Lapdesk is of a mixed one. The hard plastic surface was a tad too slippery for my 15-inch Macbook Pro’s rubber feet, which consistently resulted in my computer slipping down onto my lap while sitting reclined on the sofa. It would have been nice if Logitech had tossed in a lip or bevel to prevent this. Some might recommend a softer surface that would prevent any possibility of slippage. But as I discovered the hard surface doubles as a desk if you’re trying write with a pen onto paper. The angle at which the Lapdesk presented my laptop was perfect and was easily adjusted by simply bending my knees if I reclined further into my couch’s pillows. What I truly would like to see is a Lapdesk that offers both a hard and soft surface.
