We recently posted about a DIY project in which you could make your own PVC laptop stand. It's got kind of a nice industrial look. However, if you can't make it yourself, you can buy something quite similar. The AIAIAI Lab A-Stand looks strikingly similar and has the added bonus of being portable.
The A-Stand is based on a PhD design by Dan Steingart. It serves as a functional and practical way of improving the ergonomics of your work station, if it's at work, at home, or while traveling. The look is inspired from plumbing tubes and polished so that it can easily be transported around without taking too much space of weighing your laptop bag down.
We really like the simple shape and form that this stand takes. Although this is really functional, we find that paying $70 for a bunch of plastic piping a bit much. That being said, you can easily copy Steingart's design by using some light PVC tubing. Sure, it won't look as nice, but it's cost you just a few bucks, just like the other PVC laptop stand we featured. The design is simple enough. You just have to make sure that you don't take too heavy tubing and that your laptop fits in between the two arms.
