    Default Any recommendation for a sofa laptop table?

    Would like to watch TV as well as use the iPad on my reclining sofa. What would be a good laptop stand? Saw one on the home shopping channel but it looked bulky.

    Thanks folks. I think I will go check out the Ikea one coz table mate requires insertion below the sofa from the front and that is not possible due to the leg rest extruding as the sofa reclines.

    Recently at ikea saw quite few laptop cushion/small table, the type which use mostly on bed etc.

    My mother in law bought two of the 'foldable multi-angle laptop tables' from Qoo10. Works pretty well other than the fact that I have pretty chunky (or muscular )thighs which dont fit that well in between the table legs.

    Not at all! Please don't get me wrong. I loved and enjoyed D&T myself, would have pursued it for O's if I could have.

    Was tickled by the fact that UncleFai had automatically assumed it a product he could buy. As far as I can tell, the aRC in question seems to exist only as a design/concept, and has not yet been developed into a commercially available product. Also, the designer doesn't claim to have won any awards, but mentioned that his design was a finalist amongst others. So it's neither a 'product' at this point, nor is it 'award winning'. To clarify, I have nothing against the design (I think it's a pretty cool concept), plus, being a finalist is an achievement I would be proud of. Just pointing out that it seems to be a product concept, that's all.

    Arh, that did clarify the matter that I was just wondering about.

    Anyway I'm sure there's an alike copy MIC somewhere in Taobao.

    I was having the same desire to get one for same purpose and I just bought one at Giant Hyper Mart at Tampines.
    Got $5 discount from standard selling price due to GG period.

    Very practical and in-expensive.
