Portable Minimalist Ergonomic Laptop Stand ... In A Tube
More and more people change their desktop computers and go for portable notebooks everyday! Actually, with all the power available in modern laptops, I can barely imagine why would you go for a desktop … unless, of course, you work in those niches that require huge amounts of processing resources like video/audio editing, construction planning and architecture, 3D animation, gaming, etc …

Laptops are the perfect compromise – light enough to allow you to work from everywhere while packing just enough power to do your light office work, surf the net, check Facebook and Youtube or enjoy some light gaming. But there’s a hidden danger that comes packed in every laptop! And that danger is called “ergonomic working position” or better said “not ergonomic working position“!

And this is where gadgets like the 3-in-1 Laptop Stand Tube come into the game to help you enjoy the increased portability of a notebook while still keeping a healthy, ergonomic working posture. The Stand Up Stand is made of anodized aluminum and weights only 7.2oz (that’s 204.12gr) – just a tad heavier than the iPhone in your pocket, has an ingenious modular design which can raise your laptop to the perfect working height, transform it into a stand-up working desk as well as help you better interact and type on tablets and big smartphones. When not in use, the Stand Up Laptop Stand can be easily dismantled and stored inside it’s main component – the Tube – for easy transportation.

The 3 in 1 Stand Up Stand in a Tube is in project mode at Kickstarter and will set you back a reasonable $49 US. The project funding cap was already reached, which means the stand will safely be delivered in April 2015.

Working on a laptop all day long it’s not an easy job. If you’re one of those professionals always on the go and the coffee shop around the corner is your preferred office, you must know how tiring and difficult for your body is to work countless hours in an uncomfortable position. While in a regular office you can use a laptop stand and external keyboards and mice to improve your working position, things are not that easy while on the road.

A while back we featured the Flio laptop stand which allows road warriors to improve their posture when working on the go. While the Flio is still our preferred portable laptop stand when not in the office, there are people out-there who need an en even more raised laptop position to ergonomically work in improvised offices. For those people, and not only, we present you the Roost Portable Laptop Stand.

ALSO CHECK the AViiQ Portable Ergonomic Laptop Stand and the Ridge Portable Laptop Stand.

The Roost was initially designed for 13″, 15″ and 17″ MacBook Pro laptops, but it’s also compatible with 13″-17″ non-Apple notebooks. A full list of compatible models is available here. The minimalist laptop stand is handmade in Detroit, US, it’s made of super-light Carbon Fiber and Delrin (the same material used in guitar picks), weights only 6.5oz (183g) and has a load capacity of 132+ lbs (that’s about 60kg).

One of their latest accessories is the KickFlip, a stand designed to raise your MacBook Pro‘s end and allow you to work and play in a more ergonomic and comfortable position.
