    IKEA are missing out here, they'd clean up making 10 quid knockups of these jobbies.

    Way too expensive.

    they are close


    Not feeling the love at £100+ price range so I will stick with the lap tray as it's £9

    I think when someone heard the marketing department call it a "Dog", they got the wrong end of the stick and ran with it. What a horrible waste of plastic.

    I think the Razer Turret did a much better job of this.

    It'd make more sense to have the cable tray end up at the front with maybe an opening at the back to feed cables into the body, that way it could double up as a palm rest.

    For the money, I just don't get who would buy it! You'd have to be a huge Corsair fan to consider buying one of these.

    Re: Corsair Lapdog

    I have a gaming/HTPC in my lounge room and normally I use a Logitech K830 for run of the mill use (internet, et cetera).
    When I want to do some gaming, I have a piece of wood with the largest Razor Goliath mouse pad I could find (900mmx400mmx3mm - cut the length down a little to fit) covering it. Underneath, I raided a memory foam cushion off a old lap tray. This works perfectly with my Logitech G700s mouse and G910 keyboard (it will even support a 10" tablet on the keyboard. On a single seat, it is long enough to be supported be the arms on the lounge chair and I can easily use it with or without a wrist support and the mouse can be used either side. Even on the big couch, because it is long enough, all I do is put some cushions on either side to support it when needed, but I prefer using it when seated in a single lounge chair (keeps my forearms at a better height).
    I mounted (with epoxy) a 4 port USB 3 hub onto it, just so I can plug everything in and have a couple of Velcro cable ties screwed onto it to keep all the cords neat.
    Total cost is for the 1/2" thick piece of wood, a strip of rubber to cover the sides and a long, flat USB 3 cable (about 10 feet I think, and it is less of a tripping hazard as it sits flat under a mat), as I had the other parts lying around anyway.
    I have been asked quite a few times where I bought it and people are surprised to find out that I made it.
    Definitely cheaper, and the best thing is I can use any set-up of keyboard and mouse I like, plus plug in my headphones (when needed to keep the noise down), and charge my tablet all at the same time.

    Looks like the laptop would heat up quite a bit though. Not too different from a pillow (blocks bottom vents and traps the heat).

    What would be nice is to have a top part that has vents in it made of something that is a good heat conductor, the inside that is hollow with vent for the heat to escape, and some soft material at the bottom that is comfortable on the lap.

    For a mouse/keyboard, a larger foldable breakfast table worked for me okay-ish. Not great, so there is a room for an accessory like this, but it has to be pretty darn good for me to consider it.
