The Cheapest, Simplest Ikea Laptop Stand

I thought my lovely Dave was cheap ($20) for a laptop stand, but I've been proven wrong by Ikea Hacker, who has taught me that a genius trip to Ikea can be accomplished by looking at products with a mutable, creative eye.

Here, a user submitted this hack for the Lamplig trivet ($6) — accustomed to keeping hot pans off surfaces — where the hacker simply affixed $2 rubber feet to the trivet and achieved an angled laptop stand with airflow underneath. You'd have to use this on a surface though, otherwise I'm getting a visual (and a physical, ouch) of a metal grid print on your thighs.

You could add a USB fan to this and really keep your laptop cool :P Or maybe not...My laptop's battery gives it a bit of height in the back, and to keep it off soft surfaces, or my lap, I use a sheet of masonite (about $1.50 at art stores everywhere).I wish Dave tables were so cheap here. Mine was $50. I have no idea why. I love it though.
