We understand a laptop table as one that allows you to place a laptop on top of it so that you can work on it on a solid surface, without having to place it on your legs.
Why buy a laptop table?
Many of you will say that you can always put the laptop on your legs and that’s it, but this generates many disadvantages that we are going to explain below.
To begin with, placing the laptop on top of your legs makes you have an unnatural posture, straining both your neck and arms and in all probability causing you to end up with back pain, so ergonomically a table is always going to provide you a huge advantage. .
On the other hand, having the laptop on your legs is not on a solid and stable surface, so accidents could happen, and you can’t have other things on the table like a mouse without going further. If this seems little to you, think that the laptop will be giving you heat in the legs, something that can be appreciated in winter but that surely does not make you very funny in summer. In addition to this, you will be blocking the air inlets / outlets of the device, causing it to heat up more than necessary and reducing its useful life.
In short, using the laptop on the sofa or on the bed on your legs may be fine for a while, but not if you intend to do it several hours a day every day, and that is where you undoubtedly need to buy a table for your laptop.
What characteristics should laptop tables have?
The answer to this question is that it depends on what you need, or rather what you want to have. One thing that we personally consider essential is that if the objective is to be able to use the laptop on the sofa or bed, the table must be foldable so that later it does not get in the way and we can easily store it when we are not using it. Now, the fact that it is foldable does not mean that it is not robust, and the second characteristic that we consider essential is that it is robust and holds the weight well.
It is not essential (because it depends on the use) but it is desirable that the table allows to modify the inclination and, if possible, the height. If it has an inclination, it is imperative that it has a “stop” in the lower area to prevent the laptop from sliding, so that it always remains stable in the same position without problem.
The best laptop tables you can buy
