Worried about overheating your legs or general discomfort when your laptop is sitting on your (ahem) lap? Make life more comfortable by building your own portable laptop desk.
Craftzine has a simple basic project to build your own laptop desk using some MDF, upholstery foam and a fabric cover. As the designer points out, not only does this cut down on legwarmer syndrome, it also gives you extra space for using a mouse or attaching external drives.
Despite the title of the project, I'm not totally convinced that its bulk makes it a good notion for the frequent traveller. However, as a lounge room solution, it hits the spot pretty neatly. For ideas on how to mount your laptop when it is on a desk, check out our Top 10 DIY Laptop Stands. Thanks Di!
