Picture of Clip on Desk Lamp!(Attaches to your laptop)
This practical and portable lamp is great for working in dark places. It only cost me $1.00. It is built from a plastic clothes pin, stainless steel shim, and a LED puck light.

Step 1: Materials and Tools Needed

Materials.

Plastic Clothes Pin
Sturdy Metal Shim approximately 0.5" wide and 5.0" long.
3" diameter LED Puck Light from the hardware store.

Tools.
Either Hot Glue and Glue Gun, Super Glue, or Epoxy will work.
 
Definitely beats my Thinklight!

I don't usually use my laptop or netbook in the dark, but I'm looking at this and it's just to cool to not use. I was thinking on my Kindle, and I've used Kindle lights before, but if the light's too bright and too close the reflexions drive me GaGa.. I'm thinking some kind of diffuser and maybe a longer shim. Anybody got an idea???
