"Lapdesks solve the most common complaints of Notebook and Netbook users today," said George Saad, Director at Logitech Australia. "Lapdesks really are the unsung heroes of the laptop world, serving to correct the poor audio quality and shielding customers from laptop heat, the adverse effects of which have recently been all over the press. Even our own local research highlighted heat as a primary concern for consumers. Using the Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N550, customers can dramatically improve their laptop experience."

The lapdesk's 4-layer, heat-shielding design, combined with the soft, air-mesh fabric, helps make laptop use more comfortable.

The cushioned base and heat-shielding design will protect laptop users from laptop heat.
Logitech's newest lapdesk is also easy to use. There's no software to install - you simply plug a single cable into your laptop or netbook USB port to power the speakers.
