1) What’s your elevator pitch?
The majority of LapDesks today physically sit on one’s lap for writing, supporting a laptop computer, etc. It literally sits on the lap causing many issues such as heat transfer to the body. The only solutions on the market today are big and not portable, some using fans etc. CAAZORII has solved this problem by reinventing the LapDesk. Our solution has the user working off of his/her lap, so the problem of heat transfer is eliminated completely. In addition, our unique 3 piece user configurable design makes the desk very portable. Since it breaks down and snaps together to a size of: L 10 3/8”- W 13 ¾” – H 9” inches, it is practical to carry around in a bag, or easy to stow at home or in your vehicle. Lastly it is ultra durable made from ABS plastic, weighs less than 2 lbs, and it is easy to clean. It is dishwasher safe.

If you’ve ever felt your legs heating up while working with your laptop on your lap, you’re not alone. It can actually lead to something called "toasted skin syndrome." It’s a strange-looking mottled skin condition cause by long-term heat exposure.

Letting a laptop rest on your thighs — or worse, sink into a cushy comforter — prevents internal heat from radiating outward and can block air intake vents. This causes overheating, a major cause of component failure in computers. Using a laptop on a less-than-flat surface can also put the hard drive at an awkward angle, which can also cause damage.

Caazorii has just introduced a new lap desk that may prove to be the ticket that gives laptop users the freedom to work in unusual places such as soft comfy couches, sitting on the grass, or in the back seat of a vehicle.
Like many of you I spend an inordinate amount of time at my desk working at my computer. There are times when I would love to relax on my big, soft, couch while I work, but I need my Macbook Pro to be both stable and safe. And, I don’t want to be holding a lap desk in place with one hand while I work with the other. For one thing it is annoying and for another, it is impossible to touch type.
I was interested in reviewing Caazorii’s Lapdesk because of its structure.
