Ergonomic Viewing Angle with a Laptop Stand

Updated on April 8, 2013

Working on a laptop, particular for extended hours is not quite as comfortable for most as working in front or a desktop computer. With the viewing angle which is not best for typing and reading, most people will often find strain on their neck and wrist, especially seated for a prolong hours.

Laptop computer is more preferred than a desktop is none other due to convenience and mobility; it is not comfortable at all. To solve this eye straining and non conducive typing position, laptop stand is what you should buy. It literally transforms your laptop into a regular desktop workstation easily without any modification.

Laptop stand or most referred to as 'notebook riser' is a gear that use to raise your laptop and to provide you with the best viewing height and angle. It elevates the laptop and brings it to the appropriate eye level. So basically laptop stand is just a movable platform that support the laptop in different height and angle.

Depending on the type, material and model, laptop stand is quite affordable. For those with the basic function, you can get one for as low as $15. There are also some premium one which could cost as high as $100. This type of laptop stand normally comes with extra USB ports and additional peripheral such as the wireless mouse and wireless keyboard. Well, for those who have not own any of these wireless devices, it is best to buy it as a set as overall they will be much cheaper than buying separately.

Below are two laptop stands that come with added wireless peripherals from Logitech:

Note that beside laptop stand, there are also other solutions which equally do the same job: laptop docking station (depends on the model and design) and laptop cooler (again not all laptop cooler raises the laptop). Laptop docking station has a lot more of added functionality such as extra USB ports, audio input and output jack, video output support, Ethernet port and etc. Some even have crossed over to the function of a laptop cooler with built in fans.

    There are some great options here. I've been trying to convince my husband he needs one of these. He tends to sit on the bed with the laptop in his lap.

    Those are great tools. I haven't seen some of them. I use a Brookstone lap desk that works well for me but I would like to use a mouse instead of my Mac touch pad so a stand might be something I might like.

    After many hours on the computer we have to find things that make our typing more comfortable.
