Ultra Portable: easy to put into a pocket or laptop case.
Improves laptop cooling: your laptop cooling fan will come on less often.
Easier on the neck and wrists: lifts the screen and tilts the keyboard for improved ergonomics.
The Latosta portable laptop stand for laptop and notebook computers is made in the USA of Anodized Aluminum. Very small and light, it fits easily into your shirt pocket (4.5 x 2 x ¼ in.) Adjustable angle: Lifts the back of the screen 1 ¼ to 2 ¼ in. on an average laptop with keyboard thickness of 0.7 in. Exact lift depends on your keyboard thickness and where you place the stands. By lifting the screen and tiling the keyboard, it is easier on the neck and wrists, keeping the body in a more natural position. Better Laptop Ergonomics means less stress on your body, making long hours on the computer easier to deal with. The Latosta portable laptop stand promotes laptop cooling passively instead of using fans, which saves battery power. Independent tests show a CPU temperature reduction of 22 degrees F.
COMPATIBILITY, PLEASE READ BEFORE ORDERING: This stand is designed for use on a flat surface such as a desk or table only, and is not suitable for use on your lap, a bed, or other irregular surface. For laptops with a keyboard thickness (not including display) of 1 1/8 in. or less. The stand overlaps the top of the keyboard by ½ in., so it is generally not suitable for keyboards who's keys are within ½ in. of the edge. Not compatible with Apple Air or other laptops with beveled or curved edges on the bottom of the keyboard. This product will cover a small portion of the side of your computer (see photo). It can generally be adjusted around a power connection, but may not be the best choice for you if you frequently access the ports or disk on the side of your laptop.

A couple of things to keep in mind: obviously, it is for use on a flat surface, so won't work in your lap. Also, if you must move your laptop often, you will have to hold both the clips and the laptop. Not difficult, but if you don't then one or both will slip off and your laptop will fall. And, to protect your hinge, be careful not to close your laptop all the way.
I have a 15" Toshiba Satellite laptop and I have found exactly one position that the stand can take that actually works well. I have to place it very precisely. If done just so, it works great. I had to reverse the stands, and have the longer leg on top of the keyboard and the shorter ones on the desk. I have to put them in exactly the same spot every time.
If I use them as recommended, with the shorter legs on top, it is quite unstable. A slight jostle would send the whole lot tumbling.
When you have the Latosta legs on, you must be very careful moving the laptop (like shifting it slightly to see the USB ports or moving a touch to the side to make room for a mouse.
When you have them on and adjusted and don't move the laptop around, it is very stable.
No more overheating, either.
So I guess this is a mixed review. I am glad I got them and I do use them daily. I kinda wish I got something a little different that would allow for using the laptop on a less stable desk and still work well.
If you move the computer at all--and I am using an external keyboard, but bumps and someone sitting next to you and moving the PC to one side or the other on the desk--and you have to reset these little legs every time. Even a fraction of a move, and they will need to be readjusted. I would not even consider using the keyboard on the laptop with these in place: the computer will slowly shift and these will need attention. Not good.
They block the USB and other ports on your Macbook. See even the photos on Amazon to get a feel for this.
They DO NOT raise your computer appreciably, so if you are buying this to get your computer at ergonomic eye level, forget it. Why? The photos show a "high position", but to get this, the device must be moved very far forward on your computer (underneath the keyboard). Besides being in your way if you tend to rest on the handrest area of your laptop, there is no stability in the back of your computer. One bump, and the entire thing will topple back. I tested it as far forward as I would feel comfortable using it, and then measured the height off the desk in the back of the computer: 1.5 inches.
Better alternative: get a book and put it underneath the back of your laptop. There will still be good airflow, it's free, you needn't carry it around if you are studying or writing in a library, and it's out of your way. David Foster Wallace's "The Pale King" lifts the laptop as much as this device; if you want even more tilt, try "Infinite Jest".
I gave it two stars only because it is lightweight, it is simple in design (which is good), it may help someone who only wants 1.5 inches of tilt and doesn;t mind the fuss factor, and its made in the USA.Read more ›
