    iLap Powerbook stand thoughts and pictures.

    I've already posted a thread with my thoughts and pictures on the bags I bought for my powerbook. This time I thought I would post about my new stand for my powerbook.

    iLap by Rain Design ( http://www.raindesigninc.com/ )



    I had a look around at all the stands for the powerbook and this one imediatly jumped out at me. I needed a stand for both my desk and when I sit on the sofa so this imediatly ticked both boxs. Nearly all the other stands were for desk use only.

    The iLap is made out of two pieces of aluminium and two removeable padded cushions. The iLap is very light and matches the powerbook perfectly. The cushions are a nice touch and make it perfect for on the lap use. The cushions make typing very comfortable providing lots of support for your wrists.

    It comes in various sizes from 12in upto a 17in model. My first concern was finding a source to buy it from. Cwonline have it in stock at a massive £49.98 plus shipping which was far too much , at this stage I decided to not bother. However I discovered via ebay a mac store (Shetland Mac Shop http://www.shetlandmacshop.co.uk/ ) that was selling them for £39 including shipping, they were based on Shetland which was miles away but a quick email followed by a telephone call had one winging its way to me.

    Overall I'm very impressed with it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a stand.

    Ohh, Looks damn good. Is it heavy? I've benn given leaflets about these, but never really thought abiut getting one.

    At the moment I have a Griffin iCurve, which is nice on my desk, but useless for anything else.

    I had a look at the i curve but its too high for me.

    It weighs almost nothing as its aluminium and cushions

    What stops the pbook sliding off?

    This looks ideal, as my 15" does get a little warm on the legs when sofa surfing.

    The rubba feet on the powerbook seem to keep the powerbook in place. Seems to work fine so far

    Yup, I've got one for my iBook, it works very well I find, and the rubber feet do stop anything from sliding off.

    I think I managed to get mine for about £35 inc postage, can't remember the name of the shop, but I'll have a dig through my stuff when I get home and post if anyone is interested

    Your pictures don't seem to work ...

    I've been looking at the iCurve but atm I'm dual screening my MacBook and TBH the slight height difference isn't really a problem.
