Hello AT,

I spend a lot of time on my laptop and have been searching for an attractive side table to rest it on (as opposed to my lap – very bad for you apparently). There are many laptop tables out there but they tend to be pretty ugly – nothing that would double up as an ordinary side table for example. Until this… the Little Friend table by Fritz Hansen (pictured) which recently popped up on the DWR site. The only problem is the cost: a whopping $735 plus shipping and tax. And that's just the fixed height version!...

The height, tabletop size and look are perfect, but I don't think I can justify the expense. Do you have any suggestions for alternatives that are just as sexy but more affordable? So far I am considering Room & Board's Edit table (presumably a knock-off but taller than I'd like with a wide and oddly shaped tabletop) and the Nelson end table (classic looks but a bit too low and with slightly less useful legs).

Any other ideas?

Thanks, Paul
