I have small, irregular – cashew shaped working table. And there is really not enough space for full-size mechanical keyboard, mouse and a laptop (monitor is already on the wall). Keyboard and the laptop are always on the collision course.
So I decide to buy a laptop stand, after short research I selected Griffin Elevator laptop stand. It is aluminum, elegant, minimalistic, comes in wide variety of colors (black, silver, gold and space grey). And, most importantly – its base is not large – so it will reduce laptop footprint and take less desk real-estate.
It comes disassembled in a small(ish) box. Assembly process is easy and tool free.
Although is targeted at the Apple users – it is more then firm to hold my Dell 15” Inspiron gaming laptop.
Its base is about 26*23 cm, while laptop size is about 39*27 cm – and that makes all the difference. I can finally put the keyboard in the ideal position, now when laptop is not in the way. Raised laptop screen is more comfortable to look at. I even removed the top arms clips – since the Elevator’s grip pads have enough, well, grip. 🙂
If you already don’t have a laptop stand – I highly recommend the Elevator.
