Crappiest Laptop Table in the World Hates Lefties

An anonymous tipster has some words of advice to Jason, the guy who trebucheted his laptop with a Freedom Laptop Table ii: hey, bend sinister! You’re using the thing backwards.

As proof, he points to the photographs on the Freedom web site which clearly shows the mouse rest on the right hand side. Hence why the table is flipping the laptop in the wrong direction.

So is the left-hand freak who constructed his laptop table together all enantiomorph like to blame? Or like Catholic School sisters, is Freedom Furniture simply prejudiced against the unclean dominion of a dominant left hand?

Either way, one thing to keep in mind is that even if Jason had constructed the laptop table correctly, it looks like the laptop would have simply gone trebucheting into his face instead of onto the floor.

    I feel sorry for the guy, but who the heck bys such a crappy-looking table for a very expensive laptop? The Acer Ferrari is supposed to be about style*, not really performance for your dollar, why match it up with something so that looks both ugly and unwieldy?

    * whether good or bad style is another story

    I’m the Jason referred to in the article.

    The Freedom Furniture Laptop Table is totally symmetrical, so it does not matter whether the user is right handed or left handed.

    The reason for this is that when someone has their laptop screen up, the center of gravity shifts to the far side of the table, causing the laptop to always flip away from the user.

    If no laptop is in the table, or the laptop screen is down, the center of gravity remains in the center of the table… and nothing happens.

    Unfortunately it’s a very expensive phyics lesson to learn, and something that surely should be mentioned in their instruction booklet along with the warnings against abrasive cleaners, etc.

    Office chairs have exactly the same height and angle adjustments, and are designed to safely support office staff even while staff are sitting on them. I never dreamed that something sold as a “laptop table” would be designed to destroy the very thing they were supposed to hold.

    PS: Everyone is born right handed. Only the elite can overcome it. ;-)
