Huanuo lap desk3.5 / 5
If you're a MacBook user, the Huanuo lap desk could allow you to work comfortably from your couch or bed, providing a convenient alternative to sitting at a traditional desk.
While working on your MacBook from a couch or bed may not be the best for your posture, a lap desk can help alleviate some of the strain. It can reduce neck strain and improve your overall workflow by elevating your MacBook screen to eye level.
The Huanuo lap desk offers a versatile and convenient way to work on your MacBook. However, some features may not be suitable for everyone.
Huanuo lap desk — features and usability
When shopping for a lap desk, you must ensure the surface is large enough to fit your MacBook. The lap desk tested for this review has a surface measuring 21.65 inches x 14.57 inches, just enough to hold a 16-inch MacBook Pro while not leaving much room for other accessories.
The Huanuo lap desk is available in three natural wood grain colors: light brown, dark brown, and black. It is lightweight for its size, weighing in at 4.5 pounds.
This lap desk features a cushioned wrist rest that supports your wrists and arms while you work. Not only does it prevent your MacBook from sliding, but it also runs along the width of the desk to keep you comfortable as you type or scroll.
Two cushions underneath the lap desk raise your MacBook about 2.5 inches, providing stability without causing fatigue.
The Huanuo lap desk also features a built-in, non-removable mouse pad. The surface of the mouse pad is a shiny, textured faux leather material.
However, the mouse pad takes up a lot of space on the desk, so your laptop has to sit on the left side, causing the weight to rest more on your left leg than your right.
If you have a larger laptop, it may overlap with the mouse pad, reducing your workspace. Despite this, a 16-inch MacBook fits just fine during testing.
These slots provide a convenient place to store your devices and accessories while you work. However, they are not ideal as a stand for watching videos, as your iPad or iPhone may tilt forward when the desk is on your lap.
While the built-in mouse pad may be a bit large for some, and the slots may not be ideal for others, this lap desk is still a practical choice for those looking for a no-fuss, portable option.
The Huanuo lap desk offers straightforward functionality for MacBook users. Its plush cushions provide a comfortable surface for your arms and legs, making it easy to work for hours on end — or at least until your Apple Watch reminds you to get off your couch.
