    Long story short: I bought an IKEA Dave Laptop table, but when it is set at an angle (which it is supposed to do), my macbook starts sliding. It's a major pain because holding it up with my palms and typing at the same time is putting me on the fast-track for carpel tunnel. I can't take the damned thing back because the nearest IKEA is 5 hours away. So, instead of keeping a $25 coffee table, I'd like to put some sort of material on the top that will prevent sliding. The problem is, I have no idea what that material should be or where to buy it. If you have ANY ideas, let me know... my wife thinks I should keep using the table until I get injured and then sue IKEA - she's not always known for good ideas:rolleyes:.

    Also, DO NOT BUY THE IKEA DAVE TABLE!!! Big time waste!

    You could always screw in a lip which would keep the mbp from slipping.
