Laptops are now becoming the more popular options as opposed to desktops, and it's easy to see why. They offer just as much power, ease of use, and connectivity as a desktop in most cases. The thing is, they're cheaper and remain more mobile than desktops, too.

Office supplies are getting more tailor-made than ever before. There are now standing desks for health-conscious people. Intricate lap desks for home workers that like something a bit different. Even fun office accessories for remote workers have been easy to spot.

With the rise of laptops being a given, it's easy to see why people are preferring to just do their work while resting their laptops on their laps. Unfortunately, this can cause overheating or just discomfort.

Laptop lovers will be happy to know that these lap desks on Amazon will help you maximize your workday in a way that doesn't hurt you or your computer.

Perusing desks for your lap on Amazon will typically yield a lot of results that look like bits of plastic with pillows attached to them. BirdRock Home made a point to avoid this gaffe and add a little extra functionality to their design.

This lap desk has a hidden laptop storage compartment tucked under the desktop, and also has a nice, firm padding that will keep you comfortable while you type all day.

Sofia + Sam made the most elegant lap desk on Amazon's marketplace—not to mention one of the most functional. This lap desk has everything that you would need to turn your lap into the ultimate workstation.

A USB-powered light, tablet dock, wrist rest, and extendable side table with a phone dock are all included in this desk. This desk comes with a rich wooden finish and a lot of executive flair, making it one of the finest choices for the home worker with a sense of style.

Massive laptop? No problem. LapGear created a deluxe lap desk that fits laptops up to 17.3 inches in size. Along with a spacious desk area, this nifty little number has a cool mousepad and phone dock built into the desk.

Futuristic as it can get, it's easy to see why LapGear is a great choice for people who love aesthetic office gear.

It's very hard to find a lap desk that has an old school look to it. That's what makes LapGear's Schoolhouse Wood Lap Desk one of the coolest lap desks on Amazon right now.

This lap desk is reminiscent of the old wooden desks that schools have, and as you can imagine, it's elegant enough to fit with any gear that you could expect to see in an Ivy League school like Princeton.

This near little gadget is designed to be a dual-use item. Though it's definitely a lap desk, the ample storage inside its cushioning also make it a great makeshift briefcase.

When you're not eating goodies, you can use this as a regular laptop desk. If you need extra storage, just slide away the desks top to reveal a bunch of easy-to-use storage compartments that are perfect for your knickknacks.

Sometimes, you don't really need to get one of the most expensive lap desks to get what you need. At times, what's better would be to just get a simple lap desk with a lot of space for your laptop and mouse. When this is the case, it's best to go for something simple but sturdy.

LapGear's XL Laptop Desk fits that bill perfectly and offers enough room for a 17.3 inch laptop. At just under $30, this is a desk that's a serious steal.

A lap tray is a lap desk that can be used for way more than just a laptop. This tray looks perfect for serving breakfast, leaving a book up on your desk, or just serving up a hot plate of waffles to the person you love while they rest in bed.

A common trend we've started to see is the use of bed tables as a laptop desk... and we're loving it. These sturdy tables are perfect for people who can't stand the "pillow on the lap" design that smothers laps so frequently.

Upscale lap desk maker Sofia + Sam scored another great one with their Oversized Memory Foam Lap Desk. This massive lap desk avoids the cheap feeling of beads by opting for a memory foam base instead.

It comes with an arm rest, a tablet slot, and of course, cooling material to ensure you don't end up with a sweaty lap.

Minimalists unite! This lap desk is all about keeping things to a minimum. Beads are minimal, but enough to support your lap. (The pad is actually removable.) Weight is minimal, because who has the time to lug around a several-pound lap desk?
