Your laptop doesn’t necessarily have to rest on your lap. It would be more convenient to place it on a hard and flat surface. However, a desk or table defeats the basic premise of mobile computing. What you need is the Scribe, a modular desk that you can use on your bed, in the outdoors or any place where you happen to be. It’ll balance paperwork, files and pens, in effect giving you a portable desk that can be hung up on a wall when not in use.
