Ok, but not for larger laptops
on 30 August 2008
Having felt the start of neck strain from looking down at my laptop screen, I decided to buy the Easy Riser to get the screen lifted up towards eye level. The construction and locking mechanism are sturdy and built to last, and would be perfect for any laptop up to about 15" screen size.
Unfortunately, my laptop is a Sony Vaio FW11 with a 16.4" screen size and quite a deep chassis. As a result, the back of the laptop hangs over the back of the Easy Riser. This weight hanging over the back causes the front to lift up slightly, so that the laptop looks like it might slip over the front lip altogether. Not something I want to risk with a 1300 quid laptop.
That said, I'm sure the Easy Rider would be perfect for smaller laptops which don't have such a deep chassis.
