For traveling, home use or sitting in a big, comfy chair in your favorite cafe, a wooden lap desk is a convenient platform for writing, reading or working on your laptop when you don’t have access to your usual writing/work area. Fitted with a comfortable cushion, the lap desk conforms to your lap for the best fit possible and usually comes equipped with storage space to keep pens or pencils and flash drives close by.

These types of desks are great to use with a laptop computer. Putting a portable computer directly on your lap can cause the vent to be blocked. This, in turn can cause the computer to overheat, and this can be trouble. The motherboard could fail, or even worse, a fire could start.
