Nice, laptop could use some space to remove heated air, might build keep it up

The open inside design really allows the cooling fans to pull air in and push out the heated air very well. Since he began using this has laptop has been running cooler than when it was just sitting on the dresser.

good laptop stand but i have an 11 inch laptop :(

I think you could make it work if you scaled down everything by one piece. Instead of using yellow rods, use blue rods to make the entire thing that much smaller. It would make the entire stand shorter and narrower so it would fit you smaller laptop better

no problem seeing some new laptop stands on instructables are what inspired me to build a laptop stand (again) out of k'nex. Here are some picture I am probably going to enter the stand I just built in the toy contest. ok the uploaders not working so here is a link to a photo instructable that I made for it.

Could use some more supports/side rails.
rustymia (author)  GrandeSwag3 years ago
side rails are not really needed. I feel that they just get in the way and make it harder to place the laptop on the stand and to remove it. If you wanted to you could just make two shorter versions of the front rail and attach them to the side.
looks good, I might build it.
