If you’ve ever been bitten by the lazy bug and don’t feel like getting out of bed, you’ll be glad to know that the world can come to you instead. By “the world”, I mean your laptop — it still provides you access to the world, right?

Today, we’ll be taking a look at two of the most innovative laptop tables available on the market — the LapDawg Pug and the newer LapDawg X4. We’ll be giving both of them away, worth $148 in total but truthfully, it’s priceless.

We’ll start with the LapDawg Pug. It retails at $59 and is a foldaway laptop desk that’s suited to be used almost anywhere. At first glance, it looked slightly on the large side but after a while, I got used to the size. It’s actually pretty spacious with a large laptop area in the middle and 2 felt-lined work areas on each side that doubles as mouse pads; and a grooved cup holder.


The middle laptop work area is height-adjustable for better viewing angles, and has a built-in USB-powered fan to keep your laptop cool. At the bottom of that panel, you’ll find 2 foldaway clips that can be used to hold your laptop in place. In addition to that, the clips also serve as a great book holder if you choose to read in bed.



The LapDawg Pug has 3 height setting. The first is obviously 0″ when its legs are folded inwards. It can also extend to 13″ and 19″. At both heights, the LapDawg Pug remains steady, assisted by it’s solid construction and weight (4.5 lbs). The LapDawg Pug stretches 24″ in width, so you’ll have a fair amount of space to work with and is made of hardened plastic.


Next up is the $89 LapDawg X4 and this is where it gets interesting. The X4 is dubbed the “Swiss Army Knife of Portable Trays” and it certainly lives up to its name. Made out of aluminium, this tray features a wide 17″ work area connected to 2 folding leg extensions with interconnecting joints. Let’s take a look.

Unlike most laptop trays where you’ll only get 1 upright surface to work with, the LapDawg X4 allows you to utilise both its upper and lower surfaces. On one side, you’ll find a rubberised wrist stopper for typing, etc. On the other side, there’s a curled bottom edge, which is perfect for holding books and magazines.


The legs are what makes the X4 so unique. It has 3 auto-locking, adjustable joints that rotate around 360 degrees, so you can customise it to be whatever you’d like. It’s up to your imagination, really. But if you need some inspiration, you might want to check out LapDawg’s gallery with a couple of usage examples and images.


The X4 is able to hold 25 lbs of weight, so it’ll have no problem supporting your laptop and a couple of books. Fully extended to its maximum height of 20″, the X4 can also be used as a standing laptop desk. Impressive.


Overall, the LapDawg X4 is great and so is the Pug. Even though they’re both laptop tables, they are actually really distinct products catered for different needs. Both feature LapDawg’s lifetime guarantee against defects. You may purchase these laptop tables from their online store.

MakeUseOf would like to thank LapDawg for their generosity while participating in this giveaway. Interesting in sponsoring? We’d love to hear from you. Get in touch with us via email.

      According to Facebook's promotional guidelines, we cannot include India and the other listed countries if this promotion was shared on Facebook. Sorry, it's out of our hands.
