Avoid an ErgoNasty Experience: Neo-Flex
We here at Laptopical care about your health more than we care about the latest ultraportable laptop or Linux-based operating system, and that says a lot. No wonder we always are here for you to share the latest on proper ergonomics for laptop users. Or products for proper ergonomics, in this case. The Neo-Flex Notebook/Projector is a new stand for laptops for those busy-bee folks who use their notebook in their office much as they do on the road or in their neighborhood coffee shop.
The Neo-Flex has the looks of a biped robot on whose neck you attach your portable pal. The neck is adjustable up to 6 inches, and you can tilt back and forth 40 degrees. That means you can level your laptop at your eye level. That means you don’t throw out your neck.
The Neo-Flex laptop stand can be used with or without a port, and with or without an additional LCD display beside it. And it can be used with most any notebook, with or without a port replicator, thanks to the fact you can adjust the width of the Neo-Flex’s platform.
The robot’s neck-er, I mean platform-is also stable enough to use when writing on a notebook-notepad-hybrid type device. The stand is strong to hold even the oldest clunkiest laptop too-of up to 14 pounds. (You might want to just leave that behemoth in the Neo-Flex and never carry it again!)
For those of you concerned about your laptop being able to “breathe,” the NeoFlex stand is vented to allow cool air in and hot air out. And for those of you with a projector and the need to use it, the Neo-Flex also doubles as a vented and ever-so-flexible projector stand.
And you will be breathing easier too-without a crook in your neck or that laptop leg burn. Knowing that the Neo-Flex has a three-year warranty might also make it easier to sit up straight and compute away without any stress. More information about this product is available at Ergotron.com.
