What about if I want to stand and use a laptop, any recommendations for portable laptop stands that don't cost 200 bucks?

My portable laptop stand (sorry, picture isn't good, back right - no, that's not me):

Pizza stand. $5 each on Bowery at some random restaurant supply store.

At home they hold my APC and MPD above my keyboard b/c my desk real estate is so precious.

Laptop & interface on top, keys, APC40 & MPD18 on bottom. I add 2 $5 shelves so they are secure.
Same on I use, i put a small platform on the top on where I put the laptop nanoPAD and nanoKONTROL, the xiosynth goes on the bottom and also made a shelf underneath in the V of the stand where my interface and hub/cables are.. Posting pics soon.

It will definitely make Ableton Live 8 sound much warmer. Phat and crisp. Get me?

Cranes are awesome!

They fold up quite like the Uberstand but unlike the uber stand I never fear the crane stand falling backwards!

Finally got some pics of the stand, broken down at first then I add parts to it, and then add the laptop controllers synth and sound card, didn't plug anything in so you can see where everything goes..

Sorry about the bad quality and the size, I didn't really know how else to post them, :mrgreen: .
