Belkin Cushtop

First saw this laptop pillow last January during the Blog Parteeh. One of the sponsors (Microwarehouse) gave away a Belkin Cushtop. From then on, I’ve been looking to get one for my Compaq Presario V3000.

I found a couple at the Apple Store in Mall of Asia and they cost around Php2,100 each. A tad bit on the expensive side, IMO.

Then I saw the same one on sale at the Challenger (Funan Digitallife Mall @ Singapore) and since I also subscribed as a member, I’d get an additional discount plus the GST discount and it was down to just Php1,500.

This pillow is really great. Tough but light enough on the lap which allows further elevation for line of sight. Most of all, the heat from the laptop is dissipated properly with more than enough insulation for the lap.

    Saw one of those thingie at a big computer shop in megamall (4th floor, i forgot the name). Good thing I didn’t buy it because their price was around 2.8K!

    Now I got to find an Apple Store and buy the green one…

    it’s pretty cool, no matter how slacky you are, the laptop isn’t falling. pretty neat surface. My cousin won the cushion last january, anyway, it ended up me using it. Good buy :)

    It certainly looks nice but I wondered if there’s enough space for the hand to be rest on while typing on the laptop keyboard.

    @ jeff – too hard a rough a surface for head pillow

    @ hongkiat – for 14 inch and lower laptops, there’s a few inches more for palm rest.

    @ arnold – mahal naman nyan. Check the ones in the Apple store.

    @ Jason – yup, kinukulit ko insan mo nun na swap na alng kami. hehe

    never had a fancy for these things. i guess using a pillow was always better for me.

    then again, i use a SECOND HAND roadtools coolpad for elevation :)
