Inexpensive Laptop Stand / Notebook to Desktop Convertor





Introduction: Inexpensive Laptop Stand / Notebook to Desktop Convertor

I find myself using my laptop for long periods of time. It does get uncomfortable after a while. The keyboard and screen should ideally be separate to reduce neckstrain during prolonged use. If you are a full time laptop user, I suggest you build something like this that will help you raise your monitor to a near eye level. This way you can have both the keyboard and the monitor in the right positions.

Step 1: A Simple and Inexpensive File Sorter or Desktop Organizer Solves Your Problem

I have a sturdy file sorter that I use to organize my desk. It has a wide base and 5 slots. It is also strong enough to hold my 8lb laptop.

Step 2: Insert Laptop , Connect Keyboard and Enjoy Your Ergonomic Workspace

Simply place your keyboard in the first slot and you are ready to go. No cutting or drilling required. This position rises your monitor an brings it closer to your eye level. This can reduce the strain on your neck that results from looking downwards for a long period of time.

Step 3: More Desktop Space Too!

In addition to bringing the notebook to a more comfortable position , this design also frees up space on your table. It has a smaller footprint. In addition, as you are using a desktop organizer, note that your books /documents can be neatly stacked in this file sorter. This stays behind your computer, so you dont have to see it when you are working on your computer.

    I was just about to do this when I realized that my laptop doesn't open wide enough to use this method :-( Cool idea though!

    your telling me there are laptops whos screens dont open all the way? hot dang! why would any designer do such a thing? i learn several new things everyday guess im spoilt having only ever owned IBM's, still a bit flabbergasted here

    Of course all laptops open all the way, look at this ... oh damn! Mine only goes to 120 degrees! Why WOULD any designer do such a thing? I'm flabbergasted too!

    what brand is it? thats just weird...

    Strictly speaking not really FREE is it?



    Yes free if you just go dumperst diving or check office supply stores for returned and broken ones. I have a friend that owns a supply house and he gave me, an older metal on hols up better then the plastic ones.

    Lol did he say FREE? No, he said INEXPENSIVE. And if you already have one of those thingies, then in a sense, it IS free. =]

    This is the BEST damn thing for laptops that I have ever seen, and the money saved on NOT having to buy a cooler can be used to buy more MONSTER drinks to play more games on the laptop.

    This is a very good instruc.

    If you use the wire mesh one, you can mount a fan or two on the back if wanted.

    i ahev the exact same mouse and keyboard, weird!?
