A couple of months ago a friend was planning to buy a new MacBook, so I pointed her to the Stiletto Laptop Stand, invented here in Wellington.
The basic design idea, or brief, came from my father who wanted some laptop stands for his mobile computer suite. We spent the better part of a weekend designing and cutting out prototypes (5 in total) before we arrived at the finished and perfected result.
Today I visited my friend and saw the Stiletto stand in the flesh.
It’s an impressive piece of kit: extremely lightweight but sturdy. The photo here shows it on my friend’s desk, with external keyboard and mouse attached. The screen is conveniently at eye level, and the open frame must allow heat to escape freely.
I work with my laptop on my lap and would hate to have it on a desk. If you’re one of those people though who uses their laptop in the way my friend does, perhaps you might consider this stand.
