If you’re a mobile worker, you need a lift for your laptop so that your neck doesn’t get a permanent crease. But laptops are supposed to be portable, and most laptop stands are anything but that. But thanks to clever origami-style engineering, the MOFT hides right underneath your laptop.

A laptop stand is probably one of the few laptop accessories with the highest ROI.

Aviiq Freshens Its Origami-Like Portable Laptop Stand, Cuts Price
I’ve long been a big fan of Aviiq‘s laptop stands — so much so that I almost never use my MBP without a stand under it. Why? It props the MacBook up at an angle better suited to typing, raises the screen close to eye-level, and allows for better cooling by allowing for airflow between the MacBook’s bottom and the desk.
Aviiq has just refreshed the fancier of the two models, the Portable Laptop Stand, and brought down the price considerably.
iLap MacBook Desk-Stand [Ends Soon!]
Contrary to the name, putting a laptop on your lap, isn’t actually a great idea. Laptops can get rather warm, not to mention it’s impossible for air to get below your laptop to help keep it cool (do you think Apple made these glorious devices out of aluminum just for kicks and giggles?). Likewise laptops just on a desk or table not only don’t let the machines cool as well as they could, but they aren’t terribly comfortable to work at for long periods of time.
It’s pretty hard to find a device that works great on your lap and on a desk (believe me, I’ve looked and there aren’t many), which is where the iLap comes in.
Only available in the Continental U.S.
Super-Light Aviiq Portable Laptop Stand Expensive but Versatile [Review]
Aviiq’s Portable Laptop Stand ($60) is very similar to the manufacturer’s other stand we reviewed a few weeks ago, the Portable Quick Stand. The big difference? You can actually use this one on your lap, and it’ll even work with an iPad. It’s also considerably more expensive.
The Aviiq Portable Quick Stand is a Fabtastic, Stupid-Simple Laptop Upgrade [Review, Road Warrior Week]
I’m not exactly sure why this thing works so damn well. The idea is pretty simple: Use Aviiq’s Portable Quick Stand ($40) to prop your laptop up (in this case, Aviiq has settled on a 12-degree angle) and suddenly the screen is closer to eye level, and the keyboard is tilted. And man, does it make a huge difference.
