Logitech launches padded Lapdesk

Logitech's Lapdesk: keeps your legs cool

Lapdesk has a padded underside and is designed to sit on your lap as you work, preventing your machine’s thermals from causing a few minor thigh burns.

Air-mesh padding

The padded underside is woven into an air-mesh pattern that’s presumably designed to let cooler air circulate around them.

Logitech said that its Lapdesk can accommodate both PC and Mac laptops of up to 17in, although given the gadget’s all-white design we’d guess that Apple users are the primary target.

Logitech’s Lapdesk is expected to appear in the UK next month for £30 ($44/€34).
