When you go on a Zoom or Skype call, you don’t want the person on the other end of the call to see an angle of your double chin. You want to have eye contact with the person as if you were having a true face-to-face conversation. On a desktop computer, it’s easy to do that. But with laptops, you either have to sit lower than the table, or prop it up somehow on a stack of books. That’s why this stand is a solution to the problem. You can finally have the eye level conversation you’re looking for. In some cases, this may even prevent you from purchasing a new desk, if this can help elevate your laptop on whatever you or your kids are currently using for work or school.
Technically, this isn’t a desk, so it may seem out of place on this list. But since I personally use this item on top of my desk in my everyday life, I was excited to put this laptop stand on the list. I love this so much, I bought one for everyone else in my house who also has to take meetings regularly. This can be an affordable gift to give someone for the holidays if you know that they’re taking a lot of Zoom meetings, and currently use stacks of books instead.
