Here’s a padded lapdesk from Padded Spaces that can be used with laptops (MacBook Pro and Air), but it has an integrated stand that makes it perfect for tablets and eBook readers. The Prop ‘n Go stand adjusts from 9 – 75 degrees of tilt and can support up to 10 pounds. Even more angles are possible if you use it with an iPad 2 and the Smart Cover. Use this stand on a tabletop, on your lap, or even on your stomach while lying in bed. The stand has a non-slip surface to prevent your device from slipping off, and it allows 360 degrees of air flow around the device to keep it cool. The foam-padded base, covered in your choice of microsuede or air-mesh fabric, is comfortable in your lap. Optional features include a padded storage sleeve (in the base) for your device and an accessories pocket large enough for even a cell phone, and you can even add a built-in ripstop nylon backpack that hides in its own zipper compartment until it’s needed. All three models are available from Padded Spaces online. The Prop ‘n Go Lite (lap stand only) is $39.95; the Prop ‘n Go with 10.5″ X 9.5″ padded device pocket and accessories pocket is $49.95; the Prop ‘n Go All-in-One adds the integrated ripstop backpack to the features of the Prop ‘n Go and costs $59.95.
