Introduction to the Choiix Comforter Lapdesk

There are many of us that love to sit back on the couch with our laptop on our laps browsing the wonderful world of the internet which would include the pages of Pro-Clockers.  And there are some of us that likes to set back late at night with a pillow propped up against the headboard of the bed adding the finishing touches of a review before heading to bed. Both of these situations are common and simply placing the laptop on your legs is not too bad.

Closer look

The Choiix Comforter Lapdesk is a double-edged sword so to speak. The unit has a soft side and a hard side. And no matter what side of the Comforter you decide to place your laptop on the opposite side still serves a purpose. We will discussion this a little later.

The Comforter comes in two different color arrangements one being white and gray and the other being black and gray. The device is designed to accommodate laptop measuring up to a whooping 17” which would include my new Sony F-series.

We will begin the tour of the Comforter with the soft side. This side of the pad is made of PU sponge which will eliminate any scratching of the underside of your laptop. It also serves as a comfort point if you wish to sit it and the laptop in your lap. The knitting used on this side of the Lapdesk is rather soft.

Turning the Lapdesk over will reveal a much harder side. To keep the laptop in place and from sliding around are a plastic points are the top and the bottom. They also keep the laptop elevated high enough to allow air to travel underneath providing better air circulating. At the top of the Lapdesk is a small canal that is used to hold your power adapter and other cabling which we so often connect to your computers.


Usage

Here we have images of my Sony laptop sitting on both sides of the Lapdesk. Trust me the Lapdesk isn’t a hard device to use. It’s simply a matter deciding what side of the pad to use.

Conclusion

The Choiix Comforter Lapdesk is a stylish but functional laptop pad. Even though it is made to support laptop up to 17” we find the unit to larger than some of the other cooling pads we have tested but much lighter. Being lighter make it easier to transport from one location to another. The lightness is mostly due to the fact there are no moving parts or fans in the unit.

Even with the Lapdesk missing fans it does provide some cooling as the laptop is suspended almost completely from the surface by rubber mounts allowing air to travel across the underside of the laptop.

What gives the Comforter the advances it does have over other cooling pads is it is reversible. The user can take advantage of both sides.

Depending on where and how you wish to use it you have a soft and hard side. Each side has a discreet advantage depending on where you wish to use your laptop.

The Comforter Lapdesk has a great price point compared to other coolers which is $19.99.
