    iCurve

    Right now I'm looking for a stand so I can use my PB more comfortably as a desktop. I just picked up a PB recently to replace my busted desktop. First time owning an Apple product. :o

    The iLap and iCurve were the first two items that everyone raved about. I like the iLap a lot more because it seems more secure than the iCurve. If my dog were to hit and nudge my desk, I'd imagine the rubber strips on the iCurve wouldn't be enough. With the iLap, it just seems like it'd stay in position and hold. But then again, I'm not exactly sure and it's just what I've heard from a few iCurve owners. Another consideration is that the iLap is about $30 more than the iCurve.. :noes:

    If anyone can shine some light on these two products, on their advantages and disadvantages, I'd greatly appreciate it! By the way, my desk has a keyboard tray if that helps any. I'll primarily leave it at home, except for those occassions where I need it to finish writing a paper. I'm your typical college student. :)

    I've been using hte i-curve and it works great (in conjunction with my bluetooth mouse and keyboard). It's about to take the place of my PC at my desk once I get a space power adapter.

    The iCurve is great, especially with a bluetooth keyboard and mouse.

    the stand is for when its at home and you want a full size key board and mouse and have the screen higher up so its eaisier to see.

    obviously he won't carry the stand around.

    If you want something more portable, try the Macally IcePad. It can lay flat in folded up or completely open, or has an adjustment to adjust the hieght to fit your liking. And when it is completely folded up, it fits nicely in laptop carrying case

    From what I'm seeing of the iLap and iCurve, they are fixed. As for the Podium CoolPad it looks like it can fold up enough to fit into a carrying case, but you have find a pocket to for all the different little raisers it comes with...and then you have to make sure you don't lose them.
