Lapworks are based in California U.S.A.† Jose Calero is the inventor of the Laptop desk and president of the company.† Lapworks produce mobility accessory products for notebook, Palm and other mobile computing devises.
The original Laptop Desk was launched in June 2001 solely as a portable lap desk.† It had no desktop function or ability.† The original was targeted at the mobile professional market, known to be regular users of notebook computers. The need for the original Laptop Desk as a portable leg platform was derived from research in the U.S predicting that corporations would spend over $1 Billion by the end of the year 2000 repairing or replacing damaged notebook computers.† The leading cause of damage occurred when the computer was dropped.
In November 2001, research revealed that the majority of notebook users were stationary users preferring to use notebook computers on their desktop in place of the standard desktop PC.† As prices for notebooks dropped and the demand for productivity increased, the computer that can be taken anywhere was becoming the computer of choice.
The trade off with notebook computers is that they get hot.† In the race to produce the thinnest and most powerful notebook computer, manufacturers sacrificed cooling fans and heat skins that cause notebooks to overheat and shut down in mid operation.
By December 2001 Lapworks management committed to upgrade the original Laptop Desk and create the first ever lap desk accessory that converts into a desktop stand.† And by doing so actually created a product that cools the notebook computer by as much as 20%.
Today we are looking at there Laptop Desk version 2, Lapworks claim this will not only provide a more stable surface, but also help cool the laptop itself. Now this in itself was interesting enough for us to get one in an really see if something so simple could be useful or is it just another accessory that will end up staying in the bag, letís find out shall we.
