I spent a long time looking for various stands. I finally settled on this stand because it met my need for slim portable device that I could tuck inside my laptop carrying case and still be stable and strong enough with multiple viewing angles. I got everything I was looking for and more. The stand is well made and very light. It is easy to open and close with minimal effort. It comes with a little pouch to tuck the stand into with drawstrings. The finish matches my HP laptop perfectly. The rubberized pads hold my computer nice a still, no concerns about slipping or moving while I type. I highly recommend this stand to anyone that needs a stable light weight stand for their laptop that is portable and compact.
