My laptop has a tendency to overheat badly, and I use my laptop on my bed a lot. This solved that problem. I can no longer feel the heat from my laptop, and can use it comfortably for hours at a time.
It's of sturdy design, and looks quite nice. After a price drop, I got it for a tenner, which is great value for money as well.
The only reason this gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because the pocket running through the middle of the cushtop is next to useless. I guess you could store cookies in there, but certainly no plugs or mice.
All in all, a good item that will get a lot of use. I'm very happy with it.
