Like the regular iSlate, the SlateGo is fashioned from bamboo, and has lots of holes in it. It’s like a Dan Brown plot in gadget form. Slip it out of your bag, then pull out your MacBook and pop it on top. You now have a piece of wood between the MacBook and your knees. That’s the SlateGo Mini. There’s also a SlateGo, which is a little wider and has little cutout to stow your iPhone on one side (the original iSlate has a mousepad and a routed channel for propping up the iPhone).
