  • You can use this handy, attractive stand at home on your couch, bed, or floor, and if you need to get work done on the road, the CushTop is the perfect companion for car, train, or air travel

Customer Reviews:

  • Nice Notebook stand
    I got this stand be cause I like to use my laptop in bed,and it works well for this, it keeps it cool,is light. also I put a board in the opening which I slide out to use as a surface for my mouse....more info
  • Excellent support
    The CushTop is a great device. It keeps the computer up off my lap, at a great angle for using the keyboard and is virtually weightless. It is very sturdy as well. I recommend it to anyone who literally utilizes their notebook as a "lap" topper....more info
  • Excellent!
    If you're looking for something to put your laptop on when working, surfing, writing or just plain dawdling with your computer in bed or in the couch, this is it. Forget anything else and buy it....more info
  • made me break out with a rash after using it
    seriously, it did. hopefully this won't happen to many others.
    even if I wear a sweat shirt or put additional clothing below the cushtop to protect my skin, I still get a splotchy rash from the material of this product. Once I stopped using this product, rash went away....more info
  • PERFECT!
    I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop that is prone to overheating. After years of using an old camera box to set it on for good circulation, I started looking for a stand for it. This was and is THE perfect answer. I ordered it, got it in 2 days, started using it yesterday. It keeps my laptop cool so it doesn't shut down from overheating , I'm now able to put my laptop on my lap instead of to the side on the cushion of my couch and it doubles, for me, as a "desktop" to do school work. I LOVE IT! I would highly recommend this for anyone who doesn't have a dedicated table to use their laptop on. So far, I haven't found any "cons" to this great little laptop stand. It exceeds all of my needs, and it can used for other things as well, such as a "tv tray" for dinner on the couch in front of the tv. Great item, great price...well worth the money. The only complaint I have is that I didn't find it a lot sooner!...more info
  • Belkin Notebook Stand
    I purchased this notebook stand in January 2009 and I am very pleased with it. I can lay in bed and use my laptop without any problems. Before I bought it I would use pillows, but the pillows would get extremely hot after a few minutes. I no longer have this problem. I highly recommend the Belkin Notebook Stand....more info
  • Love this!
    I love this product.

    My lap no longer gets hot from my laptop....more info
  • Fine, but there are better alternatives
    I have owned this item for 6+ months. I have used it with a Lenovo ThinkPad x301, a 17" MacBookPro and an Asus EEE 1000H. It does the job in a workmanlike manner. To be honest, I was pretty happy with it, but it is fairly bulky and I didn't always want something with that amount of bulk and warmth sitting on my lap. It fit well when I was using it in a seated position, but if I was lying on the couch or on the bed, it raised the laptop to an uncomfortable height. A few weeks ago, I found the Logitech 939-000091 Comfort Lapdesk, which is better than this Belkin CushTop in just about every way. It is much, much more comfortable on your lap, it has two functional orientations that you can use depending on your preferred keyboard slope, and it keeps your lap nice and cool due to the design. Anyway, this isn't a review of the Logitech so I'll keep it short other than to say that you should give the Logitech Comfort Lapdesk serious consideration if you're in the market for one of these guys. I would highly recommend using Road Tools 5871-POCP Podium CoolPad (Black) in conjunction with this item (or the Logitech pad) if you have a laptop that puts off a lot of heat (e.g., a MacBook Pro). Plus, the Road Tools 5871-POCP Podium CoolPad (Black) lets you customize your tilt exactly as you like it....more info
  • BELKIN NOTEBOOK STAND
    JUST PERFECT FOR MY PC NOTEBOOK... PLUS IT HIDES THE MOUSE INSIDE THE MIDDLE OPENING... AS WELL AS CABLES AND CORDS!!!!! GREAT PRODUCT.... JHT...more info
  • Nice!
    I was looking for something comfortable to sit on my lap and this is perfect. Keeps the legs cool and a plus is the pass through underneath for the cord. I wouldn't be able to fit in in my case for traveling but for home use, it's great! It looks like something that will last for a very long time....more info
  • Exactly what we were looking for
    This stand is perfect for lounging on the couch with your laptop, without worry of overheating like if it was on a pillow or blanket. Would recommend this product....more info
  • Great laptop stand
    This is a comfortable and good-looking lap desk for any laptop computer. No more overheated legs!...more info
  • Love it!
    This works wonderfully for me since I use my laptop in bed ... raises the laptop to a nice height and I can put the cords through the 'storage' area', which is super for me since they are attached to the left side of my laptop and the plugs are on the right side. They could have made the storage opening large enough to hold 8 1/2 X 11 inch paper, but oh well, that was not my primary requirement, just a 'would have been nice to have'. Ordered another for my husband, since he uses his laptop on the coffee table ... AND got him that adorable little mouse trap (wish they made those in more color match combos). It also allows my dog to lie next to me without blocking the cooling vents on the side (ok, he's small - but has me well trained!!!!)

    And, my laptop is 17", my husband's 15" ... so the option to use either side of the stand is nice for us!...more info
  • Belkin cushtop
    I purchased this for myself and couldn't be happier with it, the space in the center holds my mouse while I'm typing and the bulk of my cord while I am using my laptop when plugged in. I even store my mini laptop inside when not using it.the quality is excellent, is very comfortable on the lap and in fact it is one of the smartest purchases I have ever made...more info
  • Does what it was designed to do
    Quality is good and does what it's designed to. Bought for my wife to use in bed and keeps the laptop off her lap. ...more info
  • The Product is Great
    This product is great. The seller is terrible. Antoline will not work with you on correcting problems....more info
  • Might work for some - not for MacBook Pro.
    I bought this to use with my 17" MacBook Pro. I returned it nearly as soon as I bought it because my laptop slides right off. The MacBook is quite light and does not have large rubber feet. A heavy laptop with decent-sized rubber feet might work fine with this stand. It also has absolutely no cooling effect on my laptop (not what I bought it for, but worth mentioning.)...more info
  • Awesome accesory
    I love it. It was what I was looking for, namely, a confortable holder for my laptop. While I have my MacBook Pro protected by a Speck Products MB15-CLR-SEE-V2 15-Inch See Thru Hard Case for Macbook Pro (Clear) if I hold it to inclinated the computer slowly slides. But, it is easy to prevent this and I don't consider it a problem. The inner pocket just below the computer is very useful to hold a small external HD that I use to store my music. While it is true that if you use your computer for heavy duty stuff (in my case, compiling software or compressing video) the computer might turn on the fans this cushion protects you from the heat. I recommend it....more info
  • good, but not perfect
    All good and well, but my laptop slides, so I have to rotate it 180 so that the thicker end faces me. That of course messes up the ergonomics. The color is as obnoxious as on the picture, but we wanted it so. Depending on how you sit, it might be too high for comfortable typing. Otherwise it's light, isolates you Ok from the heat (but expect it to absorb the heat), and the hole makes it easy to grab and move together with the open laptop. Nice thing, worth the money....more info
  • Does what it was designed to do
    Quality is good and does what it's designed to. Bought for my wife to use in bed and keeps the laptop off her lap. ...more info
  • Comfort!!!!
    I love this!! It is so comfortable that you don't even realize that you have a computer on your lap. It raises the computer for easier access for me. I no longer have to juggle my laptop on my lap. It feels very secure on my lap. It's not going anywhere!...more info
  • Sheila V.
    This item enables you to use your laptop anywhere. You are able to store your mouse and battery charger in the pocket. It keeps the laptop cool without using electricity....more info
  • Okay for the money, but not great
    My wife and I have a terrible habit of lying in bed using our Dell laptop in the evening. Primarily because of fear of laptop overheating and difficulty in balancing the laptop in bed, we purchased the Belkin Cushtop.

    The good: It's light and easy to use. There are no moving parts to break. The material and design seems to solve the overheaing issue. It seems to balance on the lap fairly well.

    The bad: It's too high and its downward angle is not severe enough for use in bed. It places your hands and arms higher than what's comfortable and you really have to prop yourself up to use it. This pad is definitely designed for use sitting in a chair not lying on a bed.

    One other thing bothered me. I looked everywhere, on the Amazon website and even went to the Belkin website to find the Cushtop's dimensions. THEY WERE NOWHERE TO BE FOUND! That's just plain stupid. Fortunately, my 15" Dell fits fine on it, but what if it didn't. Dimensions are an important factor in making a decision to purchase this type of item.

    If I had purchased the Cushtop from a local dealer, I would have returned it. Because it didn't cost too much, I didn't want to go through the expense and hassle of returning it to Amazon....more info
  • Can be good or bad, depending on your notebook
    I have mixed feelings about this stand. I use this for my macbook pro and my acer netbook.

    My macbook pro is pretty heavy and has no friction on the bottom, so it tends to slide off of the stand easily. Also the material of the stand acts like insulation, so it doesn't help with the heat. Turning the stand upside down doesn't help as the material is the same on both sides.

    It's actually pretty useful for my netbook when I'm in bed. My netbook has rubber feet so there is a gap between the netbook and the stand, so the vents underneath the netbook can do their job. The rubber feet also help with keeping it on the stand. And since the netbook is so small, there's even space for me to use a usb mouse on the stand.

    I don't use the hole in the middle to store power cords or mice or anything as the product description suggested. The cords and such just end up getting tangled in itself or sliding out the other side. I think it really depends on whether your notebook can sit on this stand properly that will make or break your vote on this product. ...more info
  • Great Product!!!
    Not only was this item cheaper than in most websites/stores. This item protects your posture and prevents your little guys from burning (if you're a guy). Anyway, it puts the user in a comfortable position for typing and viewing your screen. Make sure you don't overpay for any of these accessories because some of them aren't good and put a hole in your pocket....more info
  • Not bad at all
    Bought for my wife who really wanted a "laptop stand" but uses it on her legs in the bed also, so I thought this would help with the heat and discomfort. It does. Good product in my opinion for the price. Now I need one that stands like a tray or table....more info
  • Great
    This was exactly what I was looking for and use it everyday. It gets my laptop off my lap at a good angle....more info
  • Comfortable and convenient notebook stand
    I got this CushTop Notebook stand for my 2 laptops, one 13-inch and one 15-inch. The dual side use fits perfectly for both of my laptops. The stand prevents you from having a hot laptop on your lap for hours. I also occasionally use my computer on the floor, so this raises it off the ground in a much more comfortable typing position. It also lets the air circulate beneath the computer instead of setting it on the carpet, pillow or bed which can prevent overheating. I like this type of stand better than one with a cooler fan that you need to plug into a USB drive or a power outlet. I'm not someone who likes extra cords hanging from my computer or cluttering my workspace, so this has been a great alternative. I'm really happy with this notebook stand and would recommend it to anyone. ...more info
  • Leg insulation
    Keeps legs from heating up but causes computer to retain heat - good on me but not on the computer...more info
  • Great Purchase!
    This was the second Belkin CushTop I bought. The first was for my husband for his birthday, I liked it so much, I ordered one for myself. Soft and comfortable yet firm enough to fully support your laptop without any sinking or movement. Being able to flip it for a larger or smaller laptop works great. I was also very impressed by the "grab" between the laptop and the surface of the CushTop, no slipping at all. Even getting up and setting it down, I don't have to worry about the laptop going anywhere. Best product for the price I have purchased in a LONG time....more info
