Will you stop hunching when you use a laptop stand? I’d be lying if I said yes. But you will hunch less when you have a laptop stand.
Laptops obviously don’t have stands. Laptops with stands make working on our laptops easier than without them. They elevate our laptops and make them eye level with us.
You can have a customized high desk in an attempt to level the laptop’s screen to your eyes. But your wrists, arms, and hands will hate you for it. What we can do instead is to adjust the laptop’s height. And laptop stands do just the job.
I searched for some of the best laptop stand for home use and these are what I found:
It looks big but it actually isn’t.
While most laptop stands cater to the whole of the laptop’s base, this one doesn’t. Its design is basically 3 sets of criss-cross X structure with the smaller one that holds the other two together. For me, it looks rather chic and stylish and of course, simple.
But don’t let this little thing fool you. It’s extremely strong, durable and highly functional. It’s also caring for your laptop.
It’s made from a structural metal-replacement Nylon which is constructed from glass fiber. It also adds Delrin, an ultra-durable resin meant for heavy use. The laptop rests, pivoting grips, and feet are rubberized with TPU which guarantees optimum grip with no marking, slipping, sliding, or wobbling.
But the best thing about it, and many users agree, is its size, lightweight construction, and portability. You can collapse it when you no longer need it and it’s thinner than a TV remote. It’s so portable, I rate its portability level to 5 out of 5.
It fits most laptop sizes too. Not all because it has a limit of 0.75 inch or 1.9 cm front edge thickness of a laptop. But besides this, everything is excellent.
It has an adjustable height of 6 to 12 inches and it can even support laptop weights of up to 50 lbs! Yes, something this small can carry something so big.
We all know how risky working on the computer for extra long hours is. That’s why laptop stands are such a welcome treat.
This one from Nulaxy boasts an all-aluminum construction on the base, stand, and holder. It weighs 2.1 lbs but can support up to 44 lbs or 20 kg of laptop weight. The construction is really solid and durable, you will feel confident that your laptop is in good hands, or stand.
Rubber pads are present on the desk surface, one for each corner, and on each stopper so the laptop stays in place and does not skid around. The horizontal hole at the top of the base promotes good airflow along with the elevation which prevents the laptop from overheating. They keep the laptop cool or at least not overheat.
You can adjust the height by angling the stand. You can go from 3.15 inches to 10.6 inches which is great for your eye level depending on your height. This is the main goal of laptop stands after all.
It’s suitable for thick laptops and bigger-sized laptops. It folds down too, for easy storage.

Benefits of a Laptop Stand
It is ergonomically developed.
This means that it is designed for both your laptop and your comfort and efficiency in mind. And when you’re both comfortable and efficient in your tasks, you will be more productive throughout the day.
It keeps your laptop cool.
Overheating laptops can spell disaster. Every electronic device needs to cool down every now and then. You even feel uncomfortable when your phone feels hot.
The same consideration should be given to laptops. They need to cool down too. But that can be tricky when you are using it for 9-12 hours a day, every day.
Laptop stands eliminate this issue by elevating the whole laptop and let them stay cool better than they would if they were laid flat on the desk.
It gives just the right height.
Laptop stands are adjustable so you are sure to find the perfect height for your eyes. No more hunching, looking up, nor squinting the eyes. This also helps in spine alignment because you will be looking straight to the monitor.
It increases efficiency.
When you have the right everything, you will undoubtedly be efficient in work and your tasks on hand. Laptop stands give you the comfort you need so you won’t be uncomfortable or ineffective when you work.
I’d do anything to make my home office space the most comfortable it can be. And it should be comfortable not just for myself, but for my laptop as well. As far as I know, and I think you do too, laptops should have a good airflow from underneath to keep them cool and in good condition.
Laptop stands help them with this so your laptop can keep working for you longer. My current desk is the perfect height for me right now and having a laptop stand makes my laptop the perfect height for my eyes. I recommend getting one if you haven’t already!
