Product Description

Color: Brushed

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.

I cant believe how great this little purchase turned out to be. I got my very first laptop (Dell Studio 17 with all of the bells and whistles...an EXCELLENT purchase that I highly recommend..and ladies..it comes in pink....beautiful! I will leave a review for that elsewhere) when I got it I immediately began the search here on Amazon for a product that would be portable, inexpensive and practical for keeping my laptop cool and at an angle. I searched and read everything on every product..and even ordered the $60. Aerogel lap pad that is falsely described as a lap desk (there will be a review on that thing elsewhere also). I decided to start at the bottom and work my way up on cost and practical use. GLAD I did! This two little metal braces are so simple to use and fit nicely in my laptop accessory bag. NO HEAT has been noticeable since the very first day I began to use them. NO slipping whatsoever. I consider this one of the greatest finds here on Amazon. I sent back the expensive product as soon as I took it out of the package. I would highly recommend this product and I think I will buy another pair of these in case for some reason I lose one or need another to leave in the house while the other pair stays in my travel bag.

A friend gave me this product as a gift. At first I wasn't sure that I would use it, but after trying it out I can't believe I ever lived without it! I spend a lot of time traveling, and use my laptop on all my trips. I love this tool, it's small, portable and can be used anywhere. It takes the pressure off my wrists, which helps with my carpal tunnel. It's a great tool, I recommend it for any laptop user.

sure this is a great product, but it doesn't fit all laptops, if you have a laptop that has a flat bottom this will work perfect for you(macbook users) but for my laptop( asus g1s) the bottom has a curved edge, the stand doesn't lock in place

As the other reviewers have noted, this simple gadget works very well and is very convenient to travel with. It's a great alternative to a larger, more expensive stands. The small rubber tips grip the laptop sides securely, without any marks.

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 been using this laptop stand now for the past few months and have found it exceptionally handy. One thing I love about it is the fact that I know it to be practically impossible to damage as it is constructed of stainless steel. It is super light and portable so I always have them in my laptop bag when I need them. I have used them frequently, especially in circumstances when I know that I will be at the keyboard for an extended period of time--taking pressure off of my wrists. A brilliantly simple product...it's only design limitation is that it may occlude some external ports, however I found it easy to circumvent by adjusting the laptop stand position. All in all, well worth the money if you need a space efficient and light laptop stand!

I love the portability of this laptop stand. It allows me to comfortably use my computer for long periods of time when I am away from home. The stand puts the screen closer to eye level and the tilt of the keyboard makes for more comfortable typing. I did not realize what a difference a laptop stand could make before using this product.

I have had the Latosta laptop stand for several weeks and have used it daily. It was very frustrating to start.

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.

Using on a 2012 MacBook Pro 13.3 inch laptop PC.

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.
