    why is the iLap so expensive? Is it worth the money? Alternatives?

    In before Mad Jew links to IKEA chopping boards!

    But in all honesty, the chopping board idea does sound decent.

    Design, marketing, materials.

    Regardless of this, it's a wonderful product. I choked on the price as well, but it had all the features I wanted in a notebook (laptop) desk, so I took the plunge.

    I have been very pleased with mine, used with both a 15" PB and a 15" MBP.

    While an IKEA cutting board might do the trick functionally, the iLap does a much better job getting the computer off your lap and at the right height and angle.

    Just my $0.02.

    Because they want to make money. I don't think it's worth the money IMO. But if you're well off I'm sure you can dish out the cash with no problem.
