AViiQ (http://www.Aviiq.com) has released the US$79.95 AViiQ Portable Laptop Stand, which the company claims is the world’s thinnest laptop stand. It folds down to 1/4 inch for portability.

The AViiQ Portable Laptop Stand provides an optimal ergonomic angle of 12 degrees and purportedly reduces strain on the wrist and increases comfort for the user. The angle is also designed to improve visibility, decrease screen glare and maximize productivity. The angle benefits the laptops as well by allowing air to flow underneath, thus dissipating heat from the laptop and improving battery life and computing efficiency, says AViiQ Director of Marketing Alan Yeung.

The body of the AViiQ Portable Laptop Stand is composed of German-made Hylite, a composite material comprised of aluminum sheets bonded to a polypropylene core. By milling off the aluminum and leaving the polypropylene, the material becomes flexible resulting in the ultimate in traveler-friendly lightweight portability, Yeung says.
