Mobility is the name of the game in this fast-changing technological world. No wonder the popularity of laptops is on the rise. Allowing you to take your computer to and from work, on planes, on camping trips and practically anywhere else, a laptop is the way to go. Yet, laptops are less ergonomic than desktop units. Some people find themselves bending over their laptops, which can cause neck and back injury. A recent study by Logitech says that nearly 60 percent of people who use a laptop at home use it on the couch so they can be with their families while browsing the Web, e-mailing or chatting. In addition, 36% use a laptop on the bed and 16% while sitting or lying on the floor. That pretty much covers how I use mine. Some people use a pillow or book in an attempt to provide a barrier to the heat released from the laptop, but those solutions often end up trapping heat, making it even hotter. To make your laptop experience more comfortable, wherever you use it, Logitech has added the Comfort Lapdesk to its line of notebook accessories to provide a stable base for relaxed laptop use. The new Logitech Lapdesk has a thoughtful design that will help protect against laptop heat whether you're working from the comfort of your couch, relaxing on your bed or reclining on the living-room floor. The Comfort Lapdesk features a four-layer, heat-shielding design. The bottom layer's fabric and an air-flow chamber between the Lapdesk's base and top combine to further minimize heat. Plus, instead of the whole laptop lying flat against the body, the arched base makes contact with the legs in just four places, improving air flow. Its cushioned base allows users to relax their legs instead of locking the knees together to support the computer. In addition, a non-slip glossy finish on the top of the Lapdesk helps prevent the computer from sliding around. When you're done using the computer, you can easily slide the Lapdesk under a couch or bed for storage. The Logitech Comfort Lapdesk for Notebooks is expected to be available here in January for a suggested price of NIS 200.
