insTand offers portable laptop stand suitable for TiPBs
By Dennis Sellers
If you’re on the road with your Titanium PowerBook G4 or new iBook and want to quickly set up and work anytime, the folks at
make a line of portable laptop stands that may be worth a peak.
The insTand worktable is a thin, laptop-size aluminum tray covered in a non-skid material to hold your laptop in place. It attaches quickly to a lightweight tripod and fits right into laptop case with the computer, according to J. Burns of insTand. The tripod can be adjusted with a single knob and folds umbrella-like.
All insTands include the tripod and a high-tech tray as described above. There are two models that include a leatherette carry bag.
Prices range from US$89.95 to $199.95. The company also makes a variety of accessories, including the SideKick (which lets you attach an additional tray to your tripod) and the MouserTray (for using a mouse with the tripod). Look for a hands-on test soon.
