Offi Modern Laptop Desk


Ever hear that horror story about the guy who was working on his MacBook Pro in bed? Apparently the Mac got so hot that it ignited the mattress!

Whether or not it actually happened, it does make you think about all that heat…laptops do get awfully warm on the legs at times. This laptop desk by Offi is great for writing in bed, on a rug by the television, even in a beanbag chair. It keeps the machine–and the heat–¬†off your body and provides a nice, stable platform for typing.

That arm on the side is great for a cup of coffee or tea, and the whole thing can also double as a handy breakfast-in-bed tray. We love any design created for the insomniac writer who doesn’t want to leave the comfort of the bed. Keep this and your laptop in your snooze room and you’ll always be able to send out a quick query from that warm bed.
