surfACE work space
is a laptop accessory ideal for using a PowerBook or iBook while sitting on a chair with armrests or on a flat surface. It provides a steady work surface with an elevated viewing position. surfACE consists of three panels: a large center surface for the computer, and two side panels offset from the main surface. A space for a standard mouse and pad is provided, along with a secondary space for other items. surfACE can be flipped to provide a dropped viewing position when using a chair with high armrests. Extra parts are available to allow users to adjust the vertical offset between the panels. The surfACE also comes with rear "feet" to prop the back of the laptop up, for an optimal typing angle. It is available in clear acrylic and translucent white. Pricing starts at $160.
