Managing Your Laptop: Get a Stand Today

Managing Your Laptop: Get a Stand Today

A laptop is a great choice for workers on the go, because you can work just about anywhere—at your desk, the coffee shop, or the conference room. Unfortunately, a laptop isn’t the greatest choice when it comes to ergonomics; you can’t adjust the height of the keyboard and screen separately as you can with a desktop.

People tend to hunch over when working on a laptop, which can lead to eye strain, muscle strain, and pain in the upper back, neck, shoulders, hands, wrists, and arms. You can help improve the ergonomics of your laptop by using a stand up laptop desk, which allows you to raise and lower the height of your laptop to maintain better ergonomic posture while you use it.

Most laptop stands are quite versatile: depending on the type you choose, you may be able to use it at your desk, on a coffee table, or in bed—and anywhere in between. Many laptop stands can be an affordable way to try standing while working. An adjustable height computer desk conversion can help you position your laptop to a position that’s right for you whether you’re sitting or standing.

If you don’t use an external keyboard, and type on your laptop, a laptop stand will help you position your laptop to be at a height that is somewhere between the ideal monitor height (center of the screen at eye level) and the ideal keyboard height (elbow height).

Our CHANGEdesk and Electric CHANGEdesk stand up laptop desk models raise your laptop to the ideal screen position and also have a keyboard tray. This feature enables you to add a separate keyboard, so that your keyboard is positioned more ergonomically. They are compact enough to fit on nearly any surface, converting your existing workstation into an adjustable height computer desk. They’re large enough to accommodate a laptop and monitor—or two monitors (up to 21 inches). And, one of the greatest benefits of a standing desk conversion is that they are considerably less expensive than a full-sized standing desk.

We also offer a range of lightweight, inexpensive portable laptop stands that can travel with you anywhere: you can easily work, surf the internet, or watch movies on your laptop with one of our laptop stands like the WorkEZ Executive. Its folding legs help you adjust your laptop to a wide variety of heights, that work just as well for sitting on the sofa or on your bed as creating a standing desk at home or at work. We also have models that include fans to keep your laptop cool. These laptop stands are extremely versatile, because you can use them for more than just your laptop—they’re great for books, tablets, eReaders, or even sheet music!
