One of the major issues that I have always had with laptops is that they always get too hot to sit in my lap for extended periods of time. I decided to give this lap desk a shot so I could use my laptop on my couch without it burning my legs. I have to say that it does seem to work pretty well, but it is just unfortunate that it is so thick and heavy.
When I saw the lap desk online, I knew that it was a bit bigger than a lot of the other lap desks, but it's really hard to tell how you can work with it until you get a chance to use it yourself. While I won't say that I will be replacing this lap desk, I can say that I can't keep it on my lap for too long because it weighs me down a bit.
As far as keeping my laptop cool, I think this product does an excellent job. This is why I would recommend this to anyone who can handle the additional weight. I think that it does the job it was made to do, but I just can't overlook the product's bulkiness.
