Comments about Fellowes Laptop GoRiser:
A user on another website mentioned the difficulty he or she had using the aluminum body 15-inch Macbook with this GoRiser. Well, I have to say, after receiving it today and putting my 15-inch Macbook Pro aluminum body laptop on the GoRiser, I sat it upon my lap and started typing away and there....the...laptop...went....sliding....slowly.....down....the.....riser.... Just like the other reviewer warned!
However, for the convenience of having this flip-out riser to keep the hot bottom of my laptop off my thighs, it was worth a jerry rigging. The black rubber pads that are supposed to provide the friction to keep the laptop from sliding peel out quite nicely and cleanly, leaving behind a strip of still-tacky doublesided tape. I took some plain white foam-type drawer liner (the same kind of material many cheap jar-remover pads are made of, with that checker-pattern), cut to fit, and put those down in the slots where the black rubber was. They held ok, but I added another piece above and in between those two pads and secured it with a glue stick (and it doesn't block the vent holes). My laptop will stay secured even when I tilt the GoRiser up about 40 degrees from horizontal--WELL above what the riser will allow when it's in your lap. Also, I tested to make sure the added padding doesn't affect the snapping/securing of the riser in it's closed/flat position, and it closed and snapped fine.
Would like to have given 4 stars, but given I had to modify it--even with just my very minimal effort and even the fact I had these materials laying around--I still have to give it a 3...although after my fix, I'd say it's a 5, easy.
If you don't have these materials laying around, if you have a Dollar Tree near you, go to their kitchen section and pick up a three-pack of jar-opener pads. One of those pads is all you'll need to modify, and the others you can use for those pesky pickle jars.
UPDATE: July 2014
That first review was in January 2014. Well, I've had this riser for six months now and use it virtually every day. I just changed from a 3-star review to a 2, because this thing isn't very durable. I don't throw this thing around at all, I don't abuse it, I don't take it into hazardous situations, and yet I have three small cracks along the bottom and both sides at exactly the halfway point of each edge (on the leg-surface side when folded out to use). This is pretty cheap and flimsy plastic...it's functional, but I wouldn't buy another one when this one breaks for good in, I'm guessing, the not too distant future.
Help others make the right choice.
