For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with iSkelter to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win either a Pilot LapDesk or a Slate Color LapDesk, both of which are designed to be mobile workspaces that can hold an iPad, MacBook, iPhone, and more.

Priced at $100, the Pilot LapDesk is made from either a light bamboo or a darker walnut bamboo, and it's roomy enough to hold up to a 15-inch MacBook Pro while also providing additional workspace.

On one side of the Pilot LapDesk, there's a whiteboard and a cutout that can hold an iPhone or an iPad as big as the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, while the middle area features a cutout for ventilation along with a grip to keep your MacBook secured on the surface. The other side of the Pilot has a built-in mousepad and a second slot to hold another iOS device.

The Pilot LapDesk, which can be configured with the whiteboard and mousepad on whichever side you prefer, is able to rest hands-free on the arm of a chair, on a lap, or on a bed.

iSkelter's Slate Color LapDesk, also priced at $100, is more compact than the Pilot LapDesk, but it's still able to hold a MacBook Pro up to 15 inches in size and a 12.9-inch iPad Pro or smaller.

slatecolor
Most of the Slate Color, which is made from a light wood with a colored accent area, features a series of ventilation holes to dissipate heat from your laptop. At the right side, there's a flat workspace for writing or using a mouse, which can be customized in walnut, blue, green, orange, or pink. The cutout across the top holds your iOS devices.

I'm all for free giveaways and stuff, but I'm curious to know if this is actually a practical tool in the real world. What's to stop the ipad from flipping forward if I twitch my leg? does using the mouse, off to the side, lead to excess weight from your arm tipping the whole thing to one side? And wouldn't actually NOT having vent holes be better, so that the laptop head vents out the back of the computer rather than warming up your own crotch?

Yeah yeah, just shut up and register...it's free stuff, stop complaining...
