Having a workstation that keeps you feeling productive, but is also set up in such a way to protect your posture is essential for long days spent in front of your laptop.

What is it?
The Neekor Portable Laptop Stand is an affordable solution to tech neck, the painful condition caused by staring down at screens on your electronic devices. The condition can lead to issues like neck and shoulder pain, stiffness, and soreness, but is easily fixable by keeping your head in proper alignment with your spine while you work and moving around frequently throughout the day.
To make adjustments for a laptop or a computer monitor, it’s recommended to keep your screen at eye level to avoid tilting your neck forward and looking down, which is exactly what the Neekor Laptop Stand provides.
How does it work?
With six different heights to choose from and an adjustable base, you can tailor your laptop to suit your workstation or device and lessen the impacts of staring down at your screen.
Weighing in at only 270g (0.6 lbs), this laptop stand can hold up to 16 kg (35 lbs), so that even the largest laptops can sit securely in place. In addition to adjusting the height on laptops, this stand’s multipurpose design also works for holding tablets, cell phones, or textbooks propped open.
Normally retailing for $28, the Neekor Portable Laptop Stand is currently on sale for $20, which works out to a savings of nearly 30 per cent.
What shoppers are saying
Though there are still only a handful of customer reviews for the Neekor Portable Laptop Stand, all of them have been positive, praising it for its sturdy yet lightweight design.

“Extremely lightweight and compact when folded up. Fits in my luggage or work bag and you barely know it's there,” added another. “Supports everything from my 13" Ultrabook, to my 17" ROG gaming laptop and everything in between with ease.”
If you’re willing to give this new product a shot, it seems like an affordable solution to creating a more comfortable workspace in the months to come.
