    I have got to get me one of these! Not as much for my iPad as for my laptop so I can use my new chase lounge. Very cool. Guess what I am asking for for christmas.

    Try the Laplog

    I just read an article on TUAW about the Laplog. It's a beanbag-like pillow with a little ledge to prop up your iPad on. It looks like a more comfortable option than the traditional 'stand' approach.

    I wouldn't use one of those prop up devices during summer, too warm.

    I have a question for the people that bought the epillow. Does the cover come off so you can wash it? What is it filled with? This is not addressed on their website.

    Got mine.

    Hey all,

    As promised I wanted to share my experience with the Prop It Up. I ordered mine around Thanksgiving and my family has been using it since.

    I bought mine from [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003IGNUL4"]Amazon.com[/ame] which seems to be the best deal. Since I was patient, I got the free shipping!

    My wife and girls tried it before I got use it. They really love it! My girls like to lay on the floor while they play, so this put the iPad at the perfect angle while they read or play games.

    My wife is an adorable couch potato and she loves our iPad. She told me that she liked the Prop It Up because it let's her watch TV and knit while keeping the iPad on her lap at a nice viewing angle.

    For myself, I use it in bed. I like to read the newspaper and Facebook before going to bed and this is the most comfortable way to do it. I just put it at the highest angle postion and start reading away.

    It could be a little smaller, as it seems to be made for "universal" purposes. They advertise using laptops and such with it. I'd like an even smaller model that was just for tablets.

    Overall I give it an A-. They also have a website where you can check out a YouTube. Check it out at PaddedSpaces.com.

    Check out my girls using the Prop It Up!

    Completely Biased

    I created The Lap Log for this exact reason. We got a LOT of positive feedback from all of our holiday customers, so I think people love it as much as I do!

    I have been using the bookseat with my ipad in bed. It seems to work well and can be adjusted to different positions. The company itself does not ship internationally (from Australia), but I managed to get it form The Gallerie.

    It looks like it only lets you use it in landscape mode. I like having the option to use it either way.
