Do You Use A Lapdesk?

Living in a small flat, space is at a premium especially with a cat taking up all the available room! I don’t have a proper desk, but use a lap desk. Basically, just a flat surface with some padding underneath. Many years back I made my own by cutting some wood sheet to size withouto padding. I then discovered that they are actually manufactured and with a nice finish. The one on the left, in the picture, is pretty basic and is the first one I bought, several years back. I only use when I am writing by hand. I like to do that often, so I don’t forget how! The bigger, grey, one is only a few weeks old and designed with a laptop in mind and has room for a mouse, which I appreciate as I hate using the touch pad. There is also a slot to hold your cellphone. While it would be nice to have a true desk, I get along well with a lap desk and keep it handy. Does anyone use a lap desk or something similar?

That sounds a really good idea. Mostly I sit my laptop on my lap (surprise, surprise) and just operate the mous on the corner of the keypad. We have what's marketed as 'stable tables' for when we eat in front of the TV. They sound a little bit similar to your lapdesk.

No, I['ve never had one of those. That's nice though. I either have my laptop on the dining table, or just on my lap or tummy if I'm lying down.) I hope to get a nice desk in my room upstairs, and a good All In One like I used to have.
