Let’s face it, laptops aren’t really laptops. They’re portable computers. And when travelers are forced to work while waiting for their flights, doing so while keeping track of luggage, cellphones, and other travel necessities can’t make for quite the juggling act.
Well, our friends at Hammacher Schlemmer have the answer in a rolling luggage cart – which creates a more stable work platform than your lap. Forget about having to juggle your laptop, cellphone, and even iPod when you shift your weight in those uncomfortable air terminal seats. The Rolling Luggage Cart and Desk provides a sturdy place to work or even enjoy a movie, rather than having to balance everything on your knees.
Made of lightweight, molded ABS plastic and an anodized aluminum frame, the RLCD unfolds at the touch of a button into a platform 26″ from the floor. The desk can can hold up to 20 lbs., and can accommodate up to a 17″ wide laptop.
Attached luggage can be as large as 36″ and still navigate airplane aisles thanks to the 17¾” width of the cart. Then, when fully compacted, it can be stowed in an overhead compartment.
Total weight is a tad over 11 pounds and costs about $160.
