Buying Guide to Select the Best Laptop Supports
If you are thinking of purchasing a laptop stand, you need to be clear about several concepts and features. However, most of these accessories are not very expensive.
It is important to choose the most suitable for our computer to avoid bad surprises. Below is a short guide to help you in the selection process.
When you are preparing to buy a PC stand, you can not only take into account the best brand to make a choice, but there are several factors to consider. First of all, you will have to highlight the intended use, will you, therefore, use it at home or do you prefer something to always carry with you?
Based on the answer to this question, you can opt for tablet-shaped support, very comfortable if you work or often study on the bed or sofa, or a light and compact product, possibly in aluminum, that you can always carry with you.
The former has the advantage of offering a comfortable and firm position, tiltable at different degrees, and adjustable in height to offer maximum comfort of use.
The latter, on the other hand, have a reduced weight and can be positioned on any surface to offer not only a better view of the screen but also adequate ventilation.
One of the most important elements to take into consideration when using a PC is that it is well ventilated, to prevent it from suffering when running programs that require considerable computing power.
In this way, it is possible to reduce the wear of the components and extend the life of your electronic device. Before opting for laptop support, therefore, you must also consider this detail.
Usually, the products on sale on the market have holes specifically made to guarantee an optimal passage of air. However, since not all computers have fans installed in the same position, these holes may not correspond with the latter. Therefore, the best choice could be completely open support in the lower part.
Finally, we must not forget that materials make the difference. The most common are plastic, wood, and aluminum. The former has an extremely reduced cost but does not lend themselves to transport because they are fragile and risk breaking at the first impact, ideal only for those with a fixed position.
The wooden ones are certainly more resistant but also much bulkier, therefore designed for those who have heavier notebooks and cannot rely on too light or small supports.
Finally, products made of aluminum represent the perfect meeting point since they are light and simple to carry. The only drawback of the latter is the little versatility, and usually, in fact, they do not offer multiple angles.
Types of Laptop Stands
There are many models of laptop stands. For those looking for versatility, folding supports are the most suitable since they are easier to store and transport. In addition to their normal use on a desk, these types of folding supports can also be used on the bed or sofa.
Another type of laptop stand is the bases with cooler: normally, these stands are fixed and have various fans that help ventilate the device.
They are accessories designed for those who use the PC to play games since the increase in temperature caused by intense use is a prerogative of the computers used to play video games.
If you don’t plan on moving your laptop a lot, one-piece metal or plastic bases are the best choice; the metal ones are usually made of steel or aluminum, with non-slip rubber or silicone supports. Some models also have a mouse container and other useful accessories, such as pencil holders.
Other portable supports have a pad capable of adapting to the user’s belly: these are designed for recreational use of the computer, such as watching a TV series on an armchair or surfing the internet on the bed. To avoid annoying other people, some models also have a built-in LED lamp.
What Is Important to Use a Laptop Stand?
Neither to increase productivity nor to prevent overheating of the laptop: the main reason to use a computer base is to avoid getting hurt: when you place the appliance on the desk, you look down, but the ideal would be that the screen is aligned horizontally with our eyes.
Indeed, this is the main purpose of most models. When working on the PC, remember that your body must form a 90 ° angle with the main joints: knees, thighs, and elbows.
The main thing is that the computer screen is in front of your eyes; some bases lift the pc, and therefore you will need to purchase an external mouse and keyboard (keep this in mind when you go to choose the support).
How to choose the best laptop stand?
Today, there is such a wide range of pc supports that it is difficult to choose the most suitable for our needs; moreover, the characteristics of the computer will greatly influence the choice.
Below, here are a series of simple tips that will be very useful when you have to go and choose a base for your laptop. Here we also shared a video in which there are some tips about that.
Inch Dimensions of The Laptop
Before buying a laptop stand, check that it is compatible with the size of the object: if you buy one that is too small, you risk that it cannot bear the weight of the computer, which could therefore fall; however, keep in mind that the bigger the computer, the more chances there are that the base may wobble.
Virtually all laptop bases are designed to handle computers up to 15 ″ without problems, which is the standard screen size. However, if your PC is 16 or 18 inches, you must be sure that the base you will purchase is compatible; for these dimensions, one-piece metal bases are the most recommended.
Type of Use of The Laptop
The type of use you make of your computer will also outline the type of base you choose: if you use your laptop in your spare time, the supports that are placed on your stomach while lying down are perfect.
In this case, cooling will not be a problem, because you will be using the computer for a short time. Instead, if you use the laptop for work, the best thing is to choose a height-adjustable stand.
This way, long hours of work in front of the monitor will not weigh on your health. Also, the computer will not be fatigued, because these bases can disperse the heat better than those we talked about earlier.
Cooling Bases, the Best Option for Gamers
Today, laptops have very efficient and silent cooling systems; however, when the ambient temperature is high, or the pc is used intensely, the heat it emits can be excessive and can also damage its components. Cooling bases are the perfect solution to this problem.
If you use the computer to play, we recommend choosing a base with a cooling system, to extend the useful life of your computer. Likewise, if you routinely work with editing software or graphic design programs, cooling bases should be your first option.
Consider Buying External Mice and Keyboards
Even if you are used to working with the laptop keyboard, if you put the computer on a stand, you will probably have to buy a wireless mouse and keyboard. Many laptop stands (the adjustable ones) raise the object by 5-15 cm, and it is difficult to use its keyboard.
Other models, on the other hand, do not require the purchase of any accessories: this is the case of supports designed for the bed or sofa, which have a low angle of inclination. In these cases, our hands can rest on the laptop, avoiding adopting forced postures that can cause us pain.
