The way you position your laptop can make or break your productivity. A stand can elevate your hardware to eye-level and save your neck and shoulders from the dreaded tech crunch. Here’s how to choose one that’s right for your workspace.


Never fear an overheated laptop again.

As laptops become more powerful and compact, they’re prone to producing excess heat. You’ll know it’s happening when the internal fan starts whirling and working overtime. But a ventilated stand can keep your laptop from overheating and damaging your precious hardware. This cool-looking wire mesh one increases airflow and personal comfort with its adjustable height.


This stand also includes a slot to hold your cell phone, plus space for an external keyboard.

Experts say your screen should be at eye level when you’re sitting at your desk. An adjustable laptop stand sets you up for proper alignment while reducing the fatigue that sets in after hours of hunching, no matter how tall you are or what your natural sitting posture is.

Sitting too much is bad for your body and your productivity. If you want to switch between standing and sitting an adjustable cart like this one is a great way to do it. This model also has wheels, making it easy to take anywhere—conference rooms to collaborate with coworkers, or to the front of a room for a presentation.
