    I've got a Dell XPS 15" laptop which I use for everything. I'm finding I'm getting a lot of neck pain because I'm looking down at the screen all the time.

    I've been told I could always use the desktop upstairs, but it is too slow for me so I'm looking for an alternative.

    What I want to do is raise my laptop, when I'm sat at the table, so that I can use a wireless keyboard and mouse but carry on with the laptop screen.

    Dell doesn’t have anything and they suggest a replicator port, but that's not what I want.

    I've been looking at something like this or one a bit sturdier here but I'm worried about the angle it will be on during the day.

    Any ideas or suggestions pretty please

    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.

    Wendy I notice that both of those say for Notebooks which are generally smaller than 15". I'm not sure they would do what you want them to do. I just ordered a new lap top table through Sky Mall but it didn't get delivered before I left home, so I can't really say how good it is, but it may be the answer to your question.

    Thanks John, I'll wait and see what you think.

    I might just use a monitor stand for the time being, I just wanted something that would work well and fold away easily when it's not being used.

    Here's another one Wendy.

    This one claims it'll take up to a 17 inch laptop.

    Tom(... not a bad idea.)

    Thanks Tom it looks like the sort of thing I was talking about, I'll show Chris when he comes home and he can check the sizes for me.
