Rancho Cucamonga, CA (Vocus) July 2, 2010
LapWorks™ Inc., a leading maker of ergonomic laptop desks and accessories, today announced its new Mantis Notebook Arm, a configurable support stand for any notebook computer. As some notebook users move from their desks to just about anywhere to work on their notebooks, traditional notebook stands no longer meet their requirements. A completely new type of notebook stand was needed - the Mantis Notebook Arm was designed with this multi-position user in mind. The new notebook stand is supported by a single pedestal that is broken into three sections with adjustable locking hinge joints. This unique design allows it to be configured as tall as a standing lectern or as low as floor height or anywhere in between. The Mantis also can be cantilevered over a bed to support a notebook.
The Mantis Notebook Arm’s key features include:
-a durable aluminum three-section pedestal stand with steel locking hinge joints
-strong enough to support any notebook or laptop computer in any position
-height adjustment from floor level up to a maximum height of 52”
-rubber tipped supports to grip any laptop so that it stays secure while in use
-configurable settings for floor, chair, sofa, bed, standing, or just about any other use
-two-foot long sturdy base support at 90 degree angels for maximum stability
The Mantis Notebook Arm is constructed of 1-1/4” Aluminum tubing and comes almost completely assembled in its protective foam inner-pack. Just screw in the two 24” long base-sections and attach the two finger supports that the notebook rests on and you’re ready to go. No tools are required to assemble the Mantis since a disposable screw driver and four screws are included with every unit. The secret to maintaining a stable and secure posture for the Mantis is to position the notebook’s platform over its center of gravity. Once this posture is achieved, the Mantis is stable and secure.
Perfect for anyone who uses a laptop while lecturing, while laying in bed, sitting on the couch, or just about anywhere, the Mantis Notebook Arm serves as an adjustable stand that configures into dozens if not hundreds of positions, inclines, and angles so that you can use your laptop comfortably in just about any setting. There’s no crouching over an uncomfortable laptop desk and there’s no stress on the user’s back and neck from using their notebook. Instead, the user experiences a comfortable, ergonomic posture just about anywhere they choose to work on their notebook.
Users will love the flexibility of being able to compute from just about anywhere using this portable, completely customizable laptop desk stand. It’s just like having your own personal workstation at a height and angle that’s made just for you! If you are a teacher or an instructor, then the Mantis Notebook Arm is perfect for you as this laptop stand serves as a lectern at 52 inches tall. Finally – a notebook stand that will work for anyone, anytime, anyplace!
The Mantis Notebook Arm is available now at LapWorksInc.com - It retails for $209.95 but is on sale for $189.95 with free shipping.
