Anyone who has taken notes with their PowerBook G4 perched on their legs knows that the devices generate prodigious heat. JR Hill & Co. has come up with a solution called the Leather Lap Protector. It diffuses heat from the bottom of your notebook when you use it on your lap.
The Leather Lap Protector measures 15 1/4-inches long and 11 1/4-inches wide, and stands about 1/2-inch thick. It’ll fit the PowerBook G4, and the company’s Web site shows a photo of it being demonstrated with an iBook too. It can be used with any notebook on the market today, according to JR Hill.
The Leather Lap Protector incorporates a 1/8-inch piece of full grain coach leather on the top and a 3/8-inch piece of Sole Light rubber on the bottom. The leather and rubber are attached with adhesive and embellished with a decorative stitch around the edge.
The Leather Lap Protector comes with a lifetime warranty and retails for US$42.99.
