Hi, I’m Simone Chevalley and I’ve been with Logitech for almost 3 years as Global Product Marketing Manager within the Notebook Accessories team in Switzerland, I am a huge fan of cinema, I love to travel (been around quite a lot), I try to do some outdoor sports like running or playing tennis when it’s not too cold (which is rarely the case in Switzerland), and otherwise I ski (second thing you learn after walking around here).
Do you remember how liberated you felt when you got rid of your old desktop PC and switched over to your first laptop/notebook PC? Well, I sure do!
While I like working from home from time to time, I hate being stuck in one place – at the desk. Once I got a laptop, I started using it all around my home. Today, I mainly use it on my couch because it allows me to spend some time with other members of the household and at the same time get things done. I like the flexibility. I have to admit I also like to do my online billings on my couch while watching TV (it makes it less boring…).
While I appreciate being able to use my notebook anywhere in the home, last year I began to notice posture discomfort from having an unbalanced notebook on my legs. I realized that I couldn’t sit in as many positions as I’d like and I hated how hot the computer felt on my lap.
The Logitech Comfort Lapdesk is THE answer! I developed this product to protect the body from laptop heat and to provide additional posture comfort (thanks to its design and wide base, which provides stability when on your lap). The Comfort Lapdesk holds the notebook still in almost any position so you can enjoy even more flexibility of movement. It also raises the notebook screen closer to your eye-level for more comfort.
I am personally very sensitive to details of design in my home, so I wanted this product to fit any home environment, not just mine… (LOL). I think it’s very important to people nowadays to be surrounded by products that fit their lifestyle so I chose a sleek, attractive design in hopes of achieving that goal.
The only problem? I’ve found that once I started using it, I was truly addicted! Hopefully you’ll love the Logitech Comfort Lapdesk as much as I do!
