I have a confession: I am an iPad addict. Every night before I sleep, I use my iPad in bed for a minimum 30 minutes before nodding off.

As much as I love the iPad, it’s not the most comfortable thing to hold for a prolonged period of time. If you are like me, you probably use it lying down with one hard edge propped against your body. Most of the time, I cushion it with a pillow.

Recently I started using the Targus Lap Lounge, which is exactly designed for iPad and tablet users to sit back and relax while using their devices.

The Lap Lounge boasts a soft, comfy bottom which rests easily on the lap without the need for an additional pillow between the lap and a regular, hard-bottomed iPad stand. The cushion is a beanbag, so it doesn’t get warm as quickly as when using a pillow.

A sturdy stand is a necessary accessory to any tablet. On my desktop, I’ve been using the Belkin FlipBlade Stand. In bed, I now can’t do without the Targus Lap Lounge! The top of the Lap Lounge consists of a stand to lean the iPad or any 8-10″ tablet on, leaving your hands free for a cup of joe.

The stand supports both landscape and portrait viewing modes, and can even be adjusted for multiple viewing angles.

A small accessory pocket is included that can be used to hold cables and earphones.

There’s also a handle for easy portability, though I do find the Lap Lounge rather bulky, and don’t foresee myself bringing it with me on travel. But for sure it is staying as a companion with me in bed.

The Targus Lap Lounge can be bought from Micro Interface and South Asia Computer at Funan Digitalife Mall.
