Belkin today quietly released the CushDesk as its solution for notebook owners who want a cooler and more stable surface on their systems. The simple accessory has a hard surface capable of supporting most 17-inch or smaller notebooks and a soft underside that both distances heat from the owner's legs and has enough give to remain comfortable. It also gets a tapered design that angles the notebook up slightly for a more natural viewing angle on a couch or bed.
The stand is considered easy to clean and will ship with 3 different top- and bottom-half color combinations. Belkin promises immediate availability and prices all colors at $30.
