3.0 out of 5 stars Room for improvement but does the job well., July 17, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Laptop Buddy Laptop Desk and Cup Holder - Blue (72-698006) (Personal Computers)
The lap buddy is almost what I was looking for. I wanted the standard old beanbag lapdesk but no one makes that style anymore. This one comes very close.

The bad things: It was shipped with a defect. A small crack near the slip lip on the desktop. Someone had take a dark blue glue or marker and tried to fix it or cover it up. It was purely cosmetic so we chose to ignore it. Also, the lap desk does get REALLY warm. The fabric used must be a non-breathable one because having this on a lap for long periods becomes uncomfortable whether or not a computer is on it.

The good things: The light was in the pouch as others mentioned. It came with working batteries and it is very bright. It is removable and flexible making it a very useful accessory. There is just enough room to use my mouse on the edge along with my 17.5" laptop. It's styrofoam-bead filled pillow cushions the whole bottom and there is enough space left to squish it so it perfectly fits your lap position. We use the cup holder to park the mouse when the desk is moved.(it's a smaller mouse).

I only gave it only 3 stars because of the heat and the crack. The heat is an easily solvable comfort issue that the company can at least partially fix by changing the fabric. It should never have been shipped with the crack. Since it had obviously been treated this desk should have either never been sold or the damage should have been disclosed and the desk sold "as-is".
