Stand-up laptop stand recommendations?

Post by drbill » Thu Nov 01, 2007 11:12 pm

Hi,

I need a secure and convenient way to hold my laptop somewhere above waist-high while playing my guitar. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

but:

-- a table takes up more stage real estate than I'm allowed to use
-- it's hard to combine with using pedals while standing up
-- it's a little large to fit in the trunk of my car

but thanks, I never would have thought of using a table if you hadn't suggested it.

I just use a keyboard X stand with a plank of wood on the top. supports the computer, BCR2000 and sound interface/external drives etc.

I use a heavy duty high quality music stand with the sheet music holder flat 90 degrees.

yep. One that locks. You can lock it in a semi-extended position, and then secure the wood with tape. Whatever stand you use, just make sure not to
block the vents/fans for your laptop.

That's just the sort of thing I was thinking about, but hadn't been able to find.

Does anyone have one of these? I was considering getting one (the ikea "dave" is really short, if you look at the stats on it), but wasn't sure how stable this thing is. How sturdy is it?
