Best lap desk for ipad

Updated on March 31, 2013

Looking for an iPad holder that sits on your lap?

Without a doubt one of the hottest gifts this holiday season is the iPad. Something people may not think about when purchasing an iPad is that prolonged use of this device can become quite uncomfortable. You will definitely need something to prop it up (like a stand) and hold it in place. And you need something sturdy too, as it will be quite cumbersome for your iPad to move about whilst you're typing or playing or whatever it is you're doing with the best tablet on the market.

Luckily, there are several different lap desks designed especially for the iPad which would be a fantastic accessory for any user. Listed below are the top three best lap desks for the iPad.

Lap Pro by Renegade Concepts (Bean Bag Lap stand for iPad)

First up is the Lap Pro by Renegade Concepts. This lap desk has a very solid four star rating from consumers on Amazon. It calls itself a lap desk, stand, and caddy but it most resembles a soft and plush pillow that cradles the iPad on an angle for optimum viewing. It's no surprise that this lap desk also doubles as a travel pillow and tote as it has two pockets. The Lap Pro can adjust the angle of the iPad from zero to eighty-nine degrees allowing users to be fully upright or even fully reclined while viewing. The microfiber shell of the Lap Pro is designed for maximum comfort and can even be used to clean the screen of the iPad and works great on uneven surfaces as it conforms to the surface below.
