Features and Design

The Logitech Alto Express Notebook Stand is made from clear plastic with rubberized plastic molded into the base. The stand features rubber feet to hold your notebook in place, instead of slowly sliding off the surface after it has been put in position. It seemed to be missing proper rubber feet on the surface below, allowing the stand to slide around on your desk.

The footprint of the stand is compact enough to fit on most desks, and if you are that pressed for space you can store items under the stand since it has a ton of open space below.

In Use

I found the position that it put your monitor was just about right for comfortable viewing. Cable routing is handled well thanks to the sloped cutout, but for the most part my notebook stuck out past the sides of the stand. This made the cutout useless for routing cables around, and more just for good airflow beneath the notebook.

Conclusion

Overall this stand is a good value for people looking for a very simple notebook stand that won’t take up a lot of space on their desks. What more can we say?

Pros:

  • Cheap
  • Cool shape and design
  • Stand cutouts help with airflow under notebook
  • Compatible with Windows, Apple, and Linux operating systems … and DOS … or any future OS.

Cons:

  • No rubber feet on the back of the stand, making it easy to slide around
