Why I Love My Levenger Laprador Lap Desk
About a week or two ago I was on Twitter and @officesupplygee tweeted about something from Levenger. I smiled as I read the tweet because I was using my new Lap Desk that was a gift from my husband. I am also a big fan of Levenger products and use them everyday. I love their Circa system, briefcases, pens, and well, just about everything. See what Steve Leveen, CEO of Levenger thinks about Twitter read here.
I sent out a little tweet about my love of my lap desk and kind of forgot about it. After an hour of work while sitting on the couch using my new desk I got up and set it on my coffee table.
This is where the review comes in. When I walked back into my living room I looked at my desk on the table and it looked like I staged it for photos. I had the wings out, I had my laptop sitting on top, my cell phone was next to the computer and the mouse was on the right pull out drawer.
I thought I have to take a picture of this and write a blog. I am always looking for something to write about. So, I grabbed my digital camera and took photos ( the only thing I did was open the left drawer lid, pens and paper were in there)
I then realized the desk did not show because it was sitting on a dark coffee table so I closed the lid of my computer to see if it would show better and I had to laugh again. If you look very close the magazine under my desk is a levenger catalog. I promise I did not put it there for the picture.
I still was not happy with the images so I picked up the desk and moved it to the area where I sit on the couch. Sorry I could not take a picture of myself using the desk. You can also see my circa notebook. I really do use all these things.
I am getting to what I love about this desk but I still have more to tell you. When I received this gift I loved it, but thought it was a bit expensive at $159.00. I was thinking like a girl and thought if I get a cheaper desk then I will use the leftover money to buy some clothing item. I gently asked my hubby if we could go to the office supply store and look at other lap desks. Off to the store we went. I came home with 3 different lap desks. I tried each and every one of them. None of the cheaper desks came even close to the Laprador. We took all of the desks back and I was happy not to get the new clothes.
This is what I love about the desk
• First it looks sleek and sexy (if a desk can look sexy)
• I love the rich leather top
• It sits comfortably on my lap and doesn’t feel like my laptop is going to fall off
• The padded wrist area adds comfort and helps with hand fatigue
• The elastic straps on each side hold my papers in place even when I carry it by the handle
• Easy to carry
• Very lightweight (this is a big important bonus for comfort)
• The drawers give you a bit of storage for pens and some paper
• A mouse can be used on the pullout drawer
*note I do wish the drawers felt a bit more sturdy when pulled out. More support when using mouse.
I feel more creative when I am able to move around
When I am writing, designing, or working on my website I need to move around. Sitting at one desk or chair for to long gets uncomfortable. I like to change positions to prevent hand and neck fatigue. This desk lets me do that. Sometimes I sit with it on my lap, sometimes it sits on the couch and I sit crossed legged and lean over to it. the bonus is I have options. Yes, and sometimes I sit at my table desk.
If you are considering a lap desk
you might want to give the Laprador a try. It is pricey, but I think well worth it. I have always been happy with my Levenger products, wait I take that back I did have one issue with a circa disc. I let the company know and the next week I had a nice note and a replacement. Wow, I didn’t even ask for a replacement. Now that is excellent customer service.
