What is the load-bearing capacity of the stand component?
So by "laptop" they mean you can use it as a storage shelf and no more. Because the "lip" at the bottom is not adjustable there's no way to use this as a stand. Bit misleading but in today's world not uncommon.

I'm confused by your comment. Based on the picture below can't you just open the laptop screen and type from an external keyboard and point with an external mouse? The issue I see though is that you would need to crane your neck down a bit to look at the screen, though if you are using the laptop flat you would need to do that anyway. I have a laptop stand at work that I place my laptop on so I can look at the screen head on.
I'm really glad I bought it because it looks great. I took some reference photos for people asking about laptops:
Here it is at medium inclination. The grain looks nice and the stand is perfect for holding sheet music, lecture notes, electronics. The drawer has a black velvet lining that's great for your precious pretty things or reading glasses. The laptop in the second photo is a 13" macbook air and the stand is perfectly capable of holding up something more substantial if you're into that.

short answer: yes Take a look at photo 5/8 and you'll see prop wood held by load bearing hinges. When flat the small piece of wood flips up and is held in place by a magnet. Treat the stand nicely when adjusting the hinge and it should have no problem holding up 10lbs (4.5kg).

Thanks!
Will this hold a mac laptop?

Was wondering the same thing. Just based off of the width (12.25in), it seems like a 13in laptop would hang off the sides a tiny bit (ie. a macbook air width measures at 12.8in) but be fine assuming the stand could hold the weight.
Hopefully someone else who actually owns one of these could elaborate further?

I have a 13incher, a photo would be great. slight overhang and dongle interest is what I have.. Also that it will support the weight. want to buy.. but wont without knowing.
If you guys ever do a drop for a proper lap desk, I'll be all over that :D

I have the one you linked, and while beautiful and well made, it is small, heavy and awkward for the lap. Also a little too shallow for inkwells of most sizes.

I'm actually not sure why it's called a `lap' desk ... they were not meant to be used as such. You'd use them to carry around writing essentials, but they were still meant to be placed on a normal desk, providing you with a writing slope.
I just grabbed this. It looks great and they used a proper wood (cherry). Do remember that natural cherry darkens over time (especially in sunlight). I have a bedroom and kitchen all in natural cherry, and almost all of it is a rich, dark red color now. If you buy it stained dark red, that is the color it will always be, and it is difficult to match. The natural colors with age and it all blends together beautifully over time. If you compare the natural after ten years in a sunny room and the dark stained, you will always want the richness of the natural that has aged into a perfect red hue.
