Laptop riser has been designed to position your laptop screen at an ergonomically correct height so that you can sit up straight instead of hunching, which translates into good posture and less stress on your neck and back. Most models are compatible with standard-size docking stations. Additionally, a good riser helps to keep your cords organized owing to convenient cable management features. Two major characteristics you should definitely be looking for are height adjustability and non-skid base. Multi-level height adjustment between 0-45 degrees raises your laptop to most preferable viewing level to optimize your working conditions. Some models also offer fully adjustable clip that holds your device in place or a stabilizing front ledge to prevent laptop movement. Additional features may include document storage tray, pen holder, USB hubs, etc. Portable models are usually lightweight and often come with a carry sleeve. Alternatively, you may be willing to choose a model that easily fits into any laptop case. To avoid overheating of your laptop, check if the model you have choice has an additional venting function. It also lifts the laptop off surface, which promotes air circulation and reduces heat buildup. This way your laptop is cooled by increasing airflow.
