Laidback Laptop Table - Relax, Recline and get Some Work Done

Updated on July 9, 2014

The need to use your laptop computer does not go away simply because you are tired or if you are ill. The Laidback Laptop Table adjusts to allow use of a laptop computer while lounging in a reclining chair or while lying in bed.

Unfortunately over the last three weeks I have been trying to recover from a sinus infection. I have fallen behind on several projects because the very thought of sitting at my desk for any extended period of time made me feel shaky. I tried to use my laptop while sitting back in my recliner but the angle was wrong and made my neck and shoulders ache. Finally I gave up – knowing that I would eventually have to burn the midnight oil trying to catch up.

During the hours of laying there I thought about all of the research I have done on numerous laptop stands and laptop tables. There are many great ones on the market and each one seems to fit individual needs. As in most things however – none of them worked well for every occasion.


Who needs a Laidback Laptop Table?

Typing a report or surfing the Internet while lying in a recliner or in a bed creates a unique situation. Even if we are merely resting the need for a laptop desk or laptop stand that can accommodate a reclining position is an important one.

It is difficult for those suffering from chronic back, neck or shoulder pain to sit at a desk for long periods of time. Work time does not always end at the same time that a back ache starts.

Just because we get tired does not stop our need to get work done on our laptop computers. We still want to surf the Internet, catch up on email and visit over social networking sites.

Spending time with the family can mean just being in the same room. You are available to your spouse and children without having a desk in the den. Sit on the couch or in your easy chair while using your laptop computer with the Laidback Laptop Table.

Can I use my Laptop Keyboard while lying down?

Yes you can. The Laidback Laptop Table is designed to allow your arms to rest at your sides while typing on your laptop keyboard. If you want to use a mouse it is best to use it at your side. The surface of the Laidback measures approximately 11 inches by 16 inches.

Space is Sparse – Will I have room for a Laidback Laptop Table?

The Laidback Laptop Table is lightweight and can be assembled to lay almost completely flat. It can easily be stored underneath a bed, couch or chair.

It has a built in hand hold so carrying it from one place to another is very easy. The Laidback Laptop Table weighs a mere 3 pounds but can support up to 22 pounds.

To use the Laidback Laptop Table you need a space of at least 22 inches. For example, the arms of a recliner should be a little more than 22 inches apart.

Some living conditions such as those in the military or in college dorm rooms allow for little more than room for a bed. A desk is out of the question so a Laidback Laptop Table could be the best option for using a laptop on a consistent basis.

This laptop table is something that fills a unique need. It would be great to have it available for those times when no other laptop desk or table would suffice. If comfort is important to you and if you still have to work when you do not feel well the Laidback Laptop Table would be nice to have around.

There are other Laptop Desks and Laptop Tables that are similar in design but do not adjust the same as the Laidback Laptop Table. If you prefer a laptop desk that allows you to laydown while using it -  you should choose the Laidback Laptop Desk.
