Summary: great product! in this $20 product the sound quality is better than my high end $1269 laptop(and many other high end laptops). Would be the candidate for 5 stars if they put an external 3.5 m.m audio jack to play music from external device, and some extra soft cushion padding at the bottom will do no harm. Anyways highly recommended!
Summary: My wife is an official "short chick" at 4'11". This keeps the edge of the laptop from digging into her knees. The speakers are way better than the built-in ones on her laptop. Not quite as nice as the ones in my Logitech N700 (which sadly, they don't make any more) but a major step up. One problem is that her laptop doesn't sleep if this is plugged in to the USB. I'm researching the issue but I haven't seen any obvious causes or solutions.
Summary: I got this Lapdesk to use while watching movies in bed with my 13" Macbook Pro. The size is great, and the speakers are much better than I had expected for a $20 usb-powered devise. They are reasonably loud - at least twice as loud as the macbook speakers - and have decent sound quality, if only a little bass heavy. The padding on the underside makes resting the laptop on your lap a bit more comfortable, although I was hoping it to be a little softer.
Summary: This is a very nice product to use as a lap stand with speaker option. Speakers works amazing. Amplifies sounds more than double to our laptop capacity. This pad also works as a cool pad as it helps stop heat from reaching our lap. This product worth every penny we spent on it. Just go for it if you are looking for a simple and nice one.
Summary: This is the first lapdesk I've owned, so I can't really compare it to others. I have a 13.3" Macbook Pro, and this lapdesk is absolutely perfect for it's size. If your laptop is ANY bigger than 13" (maybe 14" can slide), it'll hang off the edge, cover the speakers more, and ultimately be too big. As far as the speakers go, they're a great improvement from the built in laptop speakers.
Summary: Good product, but don't let the pictures fool you, this thing is fairly small. It fits a 13" Macbook pro perfectly - the back of the laptop pretty much lines up with the back of the lapdesk. The laptop in the marketing pictures is likely a 11" or 12" laptop or netbook. Despite the smaller size, this thing works great. Definitely makes it more comfortable to have a computer in your lap. I have also used it with my 15" Macbook pro.
