The Best Portable Laptop Stands for Working from Home

One of the best things about working from home is well, working around your home.  Even though I do have a dedicated office, sometimes I like to change things up a little bit and work someplace else in the house.  If you don’t have your own dedicated home office space, you may find yourself roaming around the house looking for a place to work.  Today we are going to look at the best portable laptop stands to bring wherever you wish.

Searching for the Best Portable Laptop Stand

While laptops are called laptops for a reason, I think we can all agree that your lap is not the best place for a laptop for extended period of time.

Laptops put off a ton of heat, and sometimes I feel like I have been almost burned by them.

Looking down into your lap is also not great for your back, neck, and wrists.

If you want to use a mouse, things get even worse for your posture!

A portable laptop stand is essential if you plan on working anywhere other than an ergonomically set up desk.

If you are a bit of a roaming worker, there are a couple of things to consider when you are looking for a portable laptop stand.

  • Portability.  Does it fold up for easy storage?  How much room does it take up?
  • Weight.  How heavy is it?  Will you need to make a second trip just for your laptop stand.
  • Mouse.  Does it have a place for you to use a mouse?
  • On lap or over lap?  There are two main types of portable laptop stands.  On your lap, or over your lap.  Which do you like best?

Now, let’s take a look at some of the best portable laptop stands out there!  You can’t go wrong with any stand on this list.  There is a stand for every use case here.
