For many, a laptop, as a compact alternative to a desktop computer, has long become an integral attribute of everyday life. However, its use is not always convenient, since the equipment has to be held for a long time in hands or on your knees. To eliminate this problem and increase the comfort of using a laptop, a special small-sized table will help.
A laptop table is a convenient and compact stand that can be stationary or portable. It not only provides additional comfort when working with a laptop, but also significantly increases the safety of using equipment.
Modern laptop tables are lightweight - up to 2 kg, but at the same time they can withstand loads of up to 15 kg.
Most manufacturers equip their models with the following functions:
- adjustment of the height of the table and the tilt of the countertop;
- anti-slip work surface;
- rotating legs, allowing you to rotate the equipment 360 °;
- the presence of fans or special openings to remove heat and reduce noise.
Thanks to these functions, the risk of equipment fall and overheating is significantly reduced, which extends the life of the laptop.
In addition, additional supports for the mouse, drawers for office supplies, and USB ports can be used as additions, which gives additional convenience to the user.
At the same time, the dimensions of the tables allow you to store them under the bed or in the closet and even if necessary carry them in a bag or backpack.
Another important feature of the table is its versatility.
It can be used not only for installing a laptop, but also for reading or as a stand for other necessary things.
The entire wide range of mini-tables for laptops is divided into several types:
