This Year’s Blockbuster Christmas Gift Can Be Bought Right Now At Amazon

I have found this year’s block­buster prod­uct and per­fect Hol­i­day Gift. It is a Lap­top Steer­ing Wheel Desk and is on sale right now at Ama­zon for $24.95 (it used to be offered for 18.75 but because of high demand the price went up).  I am think­ing of get­ting it for some of the indi­vid­u­als that have been impor­tant in shap­ing my life for the last year.  It’s the least that I think I can do for these peo­ple.  I have a pol­icy of not endors­ing or men­tion­ing spe­cific prod­ucts but the Lap­top Steer­ing Wheel Desk is a rule break­ing prod­uct that requires a spe­cial mention. 


From what I can tell the Lap­top Steer­ing Wheel Desk is such a big seller because of its mul­ti­ple uses and the life chang­ing impact that it has on its users. 

Just take a look at some of the below “cus­tomer reviews” that rave about the qual­ity and ver­sa­til­ity of the Lap­top Steer­ing Wheel Desk.  Of course, the desk has some lim­i­ta­tions and I have tried to pick some of the 350+ cus­tomer reviews that describe some of the prod­ucts strong points as well as a few weaknesses.   

 

The great­est thing ever invented!. Octo­ber 26, 2009

Wow is this thing great! I use it as a “mini-bar” when the friends and I go out to the bars. I can quickly fix mul­ti­ple shots of tequila for myself and the friends as we drive from one bar to the next. We also dis­cov­ered that if you place a pil­low on top of it and turn on the cruise con­trol you can catch quick naps on the inter­state. If you swerve to the left or right the rum­ble strips on the road wake you up in plenty of time before you get into trou­ble. I can now take longer trips with­out being tired!

Also, i am now dat­ing a midget and she fits nicely on the steer­ing wheel desk which allows us to exper­i­ment sex­u­ally while dri­ving. This thing is like WD-40 or duct tape, it is a mil­lion and one uses!

 

OMG! Mul­ti­ple uses!!!!, Novem­ber 5, 2009

I am an OB-GYN and this has helped me take my prac­tice mobile. It’s the per­fect height for my patients to sit on so I can exam­ine them while I drive. I highly recommend!!!!

A big plus is it being an addi­tional seat for your tod­dlers, just in case you need room for office supplies.

Stir­rups needed!!!

Maybe some ridges in the plas­tic, we’ve had lots of sliders!

 

This thing is a life saver!, Novem­ber 11, 2009

Believe it or not, I’m typ­ing this review on my lap­top steer­ing wheel desk! As a school bus dri­ver I was never be able to check my email and update face­book while at work. Now I am net­work­ing more than ever! I am rec­om­mend­ing this prod­uct to the school board later this month.

 

Not so good as baby chang­ing table, Novem­ber 22, 2009

I read some 4 and 5 star reviews by those who used this device suc­cess­fully to change a baby while dri­ving. On that basis, I bought one. I put my baby on it and drove for over an hour. It did not change. Same baby. I am glad it worked for some peo­ple but I will be return­ing mine. (The steer­ing wheel desk.)

 

Prod­uct slaps you across the face when mak­ing turns, Novem­ber 10, 2009

I received this prod­uct from my ex-wife dur­ing our attempt at a fam­ily reunion Christ­mas. She knew how much I like to eat while dri­ving (fat guy here … guilty as charged!) and joked it would help me keep the stains off my pants. Well imag­ine my sur­prise when I made a left hand turn and not only spilled my plate of ham, but I now have a nasty red mark on my face from being slapped in the head by the desk which turns along with the steer­ing wheel. I wrote a let­ter to the com­pany and they did offer me a new ham. The doc­tors say the black and blue marks will clear up as soon as I dis­man­tle the desk.

 

The best inven­tion since the bacon spread!, Octo­ber 27, 2009

I don’t know how I’ve man­aged with­out this before. I used to drive while plac­ing the lap­top on the pas­sen­ger seat, but it makes it dif­fi­cult to spot police because you’re always look­ing to the side to see the lap­top. It was also dif­fi­cult when I had a pas­sen­ger travel with me — I’d put the lap­top on their lap but it became a lit­tle awk­ward, espe­cially when typing.

Not any­more! Now I can use the lap­top and still spot police on the side of the road, out of the cor­ner of my eye. If you have an ultra portable you could even put your lunch on the tray. Other review­ers com­mented that it may get messy — not true! This thing cleans super easy, you could even do it while driving.

I did take off two stars because it does have some draw­backs:
1. Not enough color choices. So the color match with my black thinkpad is really off, peo­ple con­stantly stare at me when I’m dri­ving and I think that’s the rea­son.
2. It could have come with a power exten­sion for my shaver, I could shave on the way to work while the lap­top is busy down­load­ing.
3. kind of dif­fi­cult to take a quick nap when stuck in traf­fic. I can rest my head on it but it’s not cushy enough for me to feel comfortable.

Other than that, great prod­uct — def­i­nitely get it!!

 

Great prod­uct, but BE CAREFUL!!!, Novem­ber 20, 2009

Wow, this really is an incred­i­ble time saver!

All the things I can get done while dri­ving — a per­fect way to use oth­er­wise wasted time!

How­ever — there is one con­cern I have, and it relates to safety. And not just any­one safety, but our chil­drens safety.

I was chang­ing my infant son Mickey the other day, and it occurred to me that if there was an acci­dent, the airbag from the steer­ing wheel could poten­tially injure the child.

Is there any way to turn the dri­vers airbag off while using the desk as a child chang­ing table? I just don’t think it would be safe otherwise.

Clearly, this is an amaz­ing prod­uct that is a gift that keeps on giv­ing for a long time.  What can I say, the Lap­top Steer­ing Wheel Desk gets 5 stars (*****) from me as a hol­i­day gift that won’t be eas­ily forgotten.

    OMG, it’s an amaz­ing inven­tion. Def­i­nitely is a present for some­body you want dead but don’t want to have Law and Order:Criminal Intent detec­tives on your back. I think I’m get­ting this for my coworker :-)
