Why a laptop computer desk is so important
I will tell you just a bit about myself to help you understand why a laptop computer desk is so important to me and any other writer in the world.
On April 16, 2018, I had a condition called a PE when a blood clot, usually from the leg breaks off, travels to the lung and lodges there. This diagnosis can be fatal, but I was fortunate enough to have several small clots and not one big one.
There were two reasons why this happened to me. One of those reasons was because I would sit at a high-top table for hours on my laptop computer writing. My legs were dependent, meaning I did not keep them elevated which tends to form clots in the veins.
After my diagnosis and a bit of fear I knew I had to sit in my recliner chair with my legs elevated. So, I went in search of a laptop computer desk to raise my computer height with a light so I could see my keys.
It was a daunting task. I researched and read every word on every laptop desk style that existed.

Cons from reviews
pull-out was so slick the mouse fell off (the brown one comes with a mouse pad attached and does not do this)
Tablets and phones will not fit in the slots without removing their case (I use an I phone X, and it fits well)
This one is my top recommendation for anyone who wants to sit in a recliner with their legs up, write in the dark and have your phone easily accessible.
You can’t go wrong with this computer desk. It is by far the best pick of all I have ever seen, had and researched.
Overall this laptop computer desk is the most perfect on I have owned. It is a great size and raised just enough to prevent posture problems. The light is excellent to see at night. The memory foam is very comfortable on my lap. My computer stays put on the desk.
