Introduction: Snuggie Mod for Netbooks

Step 1: What's the Problem?

Laying down on the couch with your knees up is the comfy spot that we've evolved to. It's a fact. But as you can see with the pictures below this leads to the netbook sliding into home problem.

How are you supposed to focus on your next funny comment in a forum thread when your computer keeps getting pulled into your nethers? With this quick mod, that's how. So let's get started.

Step 2: Find Your Comfy Spot

Get nice and cozy in your reading position and place your netbook right where you want it. A place so that it's easy to type and see the glory of the 10-inch screen.

Now mark the spot on the Snuggie at the bottom of the laptop.

Step 3: Position Netbook on Snuggie

Take off the snuggie and lay it out on the floor. Line up the netbook with the chalk mark and then move it left or right to center it.

Step 4: Make More Marks

With the netbook in place, we'll need to make mroe marks of where we'll want to cut.

The goal is to make a couple of slits that can become pockets for the netbook to rest in. So visualize a diagonal line going across the corners of the netbook and mark the spots where that line would extend off of the netbook.

Step 5: Cut!

Remove the netbook and place a cutting mat or some cardboard underneath the snuggie/slanket.

Now cut lines between your pairs of marks.

Recommended, but not shown: reinforce the holes by sewing around them.

Step 6: Enjoy!

You now have a couple of holes to hold your netbook in place! You can now relax without having to keep holding your netbook up.

My gateway netbook would say SCREW THIS IT IS BOSD TIME BABY! Aka Blue screen of death.

well, umm, err, I mean, why not make a smal table to hold the laptop?

Nice idea i use net books :)

yeah over heating is the biggest problem especially when manufacturers have put intakes or exhausts ont he bottom of the lappys

my Acer aspire one doesn't get very hot (Compared to Dell Inspiron 6400)

Some manufacturers have solved the problem by placing the air intake on the back of the netbook... My Asus eee S101 have that feature it comes in very handy when lying down with your netbook

If you got a glue gun and did some wavy lines on the slanket, in the area you wanted the netbook, it wouldn't slide down either.

Cool instructable :)

The bottom of laptops tend to get hot and i personally would not like melted glue on my blanket and laptop XD

Maybe, but it wouldn't be locked in place like this is. Also, leaving a lot of hot glue on the snuggie in the area of your crotch would just look... wrong.
