Cheap doesn't always have to mean ugly, and this laptop stand is proof. It's not a work of art, but it's both functional and minimal, stays out of the way tucked against a wall under your laptop, and it brings your laptop's screen up to eye-level so you can see it comfortably. Plus, the whole setup will only set you back about $12 in parts from IKEA.
