£12.99 from play.com

i have one, they're OK...glad i have one, but i'm not shouting from the rooftops on how great they are. At 13 quid, it is worth the buy

The cheapest I've seen these was £9.99 from Dell several weeks ago on offer; or more recently £9.99 instore at Staples. I wouldn't like to have paid Belkin's RRP of £19.99 for what is essentially a shaped piece of covered foam. However it's simplicity belies it's usefulness and you'd be surprised how effective/comfortable/purposeful it really is.

Hope this helps.

Yeah I've got one too- it's ok, not amazing, but ok

I got one from play.com for 12.99. It does the job anyway

I have one too. It's better than I thought it would be as it is more solid than I was lead to believe. Don't believe the advertising blurb though when they say you can store your mouse and powersupply, etc. in the gap in the middle - it's too narrow to be of any practicle use for normal sized mice/powersupplies.

As Alpesh said, for £13 it's worth it.

Your spot-on about the storage potential .... I'm not comfortable with placing my, already hot-enough, power supply into a relatively confined space............No jokes please sickos!!

I find mine great. Really takes the strain off your neck/back if you're using your machine for an extended period of time.
As per prev posts, got mine from Play :thumbsup:

I was worried about this as my laptop is the same, but there is next to no give, so it's just like resting your laptop on a tray or something.

What are they like for using on your knee? I currently use one of those trays with like a bean bag thing on the back, whenever ive seen cushtops advertised is says/shows them being used on the bed or floor.

I must admit, I mainly use mine on my bed too, but I've used it on my lap as well and it was fine. It does feel a little slippy on certain materials though, although not slippy enough to slide off or anything.
