It wasn't long ago that we all had the desktops. Now, don't get me wrong, the massive desktop computers were great. They got the job done. However, unless you are a hard core gamer that loves to go to LAN Party, it's hard to praise the old dinosaurs when we have the option of laptop notebook computers. These small wonders get all of the same tasks done, but without the hassle of being restricted to one specific area, or room in the house. We have achieved Internet freedom. I love the ability of being wireless and venturing to any part of my home with my laptop notebook computer in hand. After all, what's the point of having wireless access when your computer is stuck on a desktop. It kind of defeats the purpose.

It's funny that so many businesses are offering free Internet access. This is a great way to get more business. Simply tell people that they don't have to remain home to work online, or to research for that big term paper. The convenience of the laptop notebook computer is incredible. People tote them around nowadays in their school bags and brief cases. Our work and fun are no longer connected to wires.

One of the many advantages is the DVD option. I didn't think about this much at first when I purchased my Dell INSPIRON 630m but the first time my family and I went on a road trip, the advantage became clear. We could actually watch movies in the hotel where we stayed. It's so easy with such a small computer. That's what makes these notebooks so great. They are always getting smaller, but doing more. The laptop notebook computer is a clear example of where our future is headed. While we love having computer and Internet access, we crave for more freedom. This is why the laptop notebook computer is so prevalent in our society these days. If you haven't conformed to a simpler way of life yet, then just hop online and you will see a number of possibilities in order to purchase your first laptop notebook computer. You won't be sorry!

Benefits Of A LapDesk

A lap desk is somehow considered specialty items. Certain lap desks have a removable monopod, which makes them collapsible cousins to the lectern desk. Others have two short collapsible legs, so that they can be used both in bed and on a lap. In our context, lap desk is used to a base for a laptop. Here's a few benefit of using a lap desk for a laptop:
  1. Ideal for travelling - Can be used on an airplane, at home or at work. Simply anywhere since it's portable enough to be fit in a laptop case.
  2. Mobile convenience - Apart of its mobility, a laptop lapdesk normally has a non-skid surface that can hold a laptop in place firmly.
  3. Improved air flow - Normally, a typical laptop would produce heat when operating. Ventilation is vital for a laptop to perform at it's optimal performance. A lap desk for a laptop provides ample ventilation for airflow to move around.

A Laptop Desk In Your Car?

If you are a war driver, you'll be most likely driving around in your car with your laptop in seeking for a Wi-Fi connection to tap in. However, war drivers doesn't really need a place to store all these stuff such as the mobile car desk shown below since normally they're mostly hobbyist:

So, who uses this mobile car desk? Let's see some features first:
Product Features
  • Works great as a Police Car Desk or portable desk for the car
  • On top, non-skid material stabilizes briefcase, laptop computer or wide-base printers
  • Large storage area inside the AutoExec holds computer, planner, cellular phone and more
  • Top-loading storage compartments hold small tools and supplies such as a calculator, files, pencils, tape recorder, notepads, etc
  • Fits in the passenger seat and is safely secured with the seatbelt
With all these stuff put into the desk, I guess the desk alone would be quite heavy so it's not really suitable to put on your lap. It is recommended to put this mobile car desk on the passenger seat. Depending on the size of your car, this product is quite practical in a compact car while waiting for someone or stuck in a long traffic jam. Workaholics or mobile worker would just love this product since they can do their work while on the go.

Bumpers For Your Laptop

I'm not really sure if this product could be called a bumper. Bumpers should protect the side of a laptop instead of the lower part of it. It is more like a suspension if you ask me.

They have a video for this product at Bodelin Technologies. The video is somehow hillarious for me especially when a female voice is saying "Dr Bodelin's".
