The Targus Compact Laptop Desk allows you create a workspace for your laptop wherever you go. Nearly as thin as a magazine, the Compact Laptop Desk folds in half to easily fit in a laptop bag for travel. The desk lays flat on your lap for a stable work surface, ideal in airports or other compact spaces where a table is not available. The vented surface allows air to flow so the laptop runs cooler. The Laptop Desk features two surfaces that are positioned for left or right handed mousing. For added convenience, the desk also converts to an adjustable stand to provide an elevated, ergonomic tilt when using a laptop in a variety of environments including classrooms, coffee shops and airplanes.
