Ikea Dave Laptop Table
Advantages: Sturdy, very useful for laptop users, affordable.
Disadvantages: A table is much better for posture.
As I do all my work on a laptop I am always on the lookout for new and innovative products to make my time on the laptop more enjoyable and manageable. On a recent visit to Ikea I came across their 'Dave' Laptop Table, which is a table designed specifically to accommodate your laptop. The table has a fully adjustable height and angle of inclination function and is therefore easy to make comfortable for whoever uses it. Instead of sitting with the laptop on my knees and quickly having aching shoulders and neck I now sit down in much more comfort with Dave. A single spindle supports the table top and from this branches a trio of legs offering maximum support. You might have noticed the handle in one of the corners of the worktop, and the reason for tis is very simple. The handle is for carrying Dave about with you and the top can be folded down for easy transport and storage. Costing just £15.31 from Ikea, Dave is available in three colours, red, black and also white. I chose the black one to match my laptop and accessories, although the other colours also look very smart too.
The table is wipe clean and the top is made from fibreboard and is epoxy/polyester powder coated. The base (legs) are made from reinforced polymide plastic, as is the lock mechanism.
As Dave is fully adjustable it suits my needs and those of others. Spending long periods of time with a laptop on your knees isn't ideal, so Dave is a great companion for when I am on my laptop. Dave is also great as a coffee table, though I wouldn't let Dave hold my drinks at the same time as my laptop to prevent accidents. The surface of the table is large enough to accommodate all laptop sizes and feels sturdy enough to withstand hard daily use.
Ikea have sold the Dave laptop stand for a number of years now and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who uses a laptop regularly. Obviously a table is much better, but if you want to go online in front of the TV in an evening then this product is ideal.
Summary: Great value, well built product.
