We have recently just returned for a short weekend trip to Hong Kong but no I will not be writing about that holiday (yet) in this post. Yes that will have to wait (I’m sorry I know I am rather behind in holiday itinerary posts). Rather, I’m going to share with everyone a product that helped me to jump right back into work..comfortably.
A couple of weeks ago I was struggling alittle to equip my new desk at work. My work requires me to be at the computer A LOT…it requires me to read off the screen and type on the keyboard A LOT as well. Most people’s solution to that would be a big computer monitor or even a TV monitor (yes a TV I kid you not 🙂 ).
However I don’t really like big screens, ironically they give me a headache. I honestly much prefer working on my small laptop screen. The problem with that is the fact that the laptop screen would sit directly on the table and the screen would be angled too low. So faced with a choice between hunching over my laptop and using a big monitor screen, I had no choice but to use a big screen. :p Yes first world problems I know.
So when Primero, a website that provides aesthetic, premium and functional laptop stands and accessories approached us to try out 2 of their products, it was perfect timing!
ErgoSilver Laptop Stand
I chose to use the ErgoSilve Laptop Stand because it allows me to place my laptop on the stand and raise it to eye level.I can then utilize the screen of my laptop without adding on an additional monitor. Of course with the entire laptop raised, it also meant that I couldn’t type directly from the laptop’s key board.
I was totally ok with this because this gave me the perfect excuse to get myself a wireless keyboard and mouse which meant less wires on a table already full of wires (charger wire, lan cable, Kensington lock, power adaptor, usb port wires). The stand even had a slot/ space under the raised ‘platform’ to tuck my wireless keyboard away at the end of the day. Needless to say I am totally happy with this new ‘arrangement’ on my work desk.
ErgoSilver Laptop Riser
For those of you who actually prefer less clutter and would like to type directly on the laptop’s keyboard, you would find the ErgoSilver Laptop Riser a good option. Joel uses this option when he is working at home. Due to the space constraint on our study table, there really isn’t much space for an additional keyboard but yet he faces the same issue of the laptop either sitting too low or an uncomfortable typing angle. The ErgoSilver Laptop Riser elevates the laptop slightly and at an angle so that the laptop keyboard is comfortably accessible.
I have to say that we are both super happy with these new additions to our work space. If you are keen to improve your work space as well then head over to Primero’s website where they also have health tips and work functionality tips. 🙂 http://laptopstand.sg/blog/
Happy Working everyone!
