Being writers, we both spend most of our time; online. We have to prepare reports and so many things are done at the office’s desk, at times at home; on the living room’s desk! Hunching is a norm which pretty much causes neck and back pain. Well, no longer; as our ErgoSilver Laptop Stand by Primero Singapore that we ordered online (SGD 49.90), was efficiently delivered to our office in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. Gone are the days that we had to hunch just to be closer to the laptop.
@Lan’s indeed happy with this ErgoSilver laptop stand. He’s comfortable enough with his shoulder’s position and he no longer feel tired as there’s no hunching needed. Since he started his career as a full time writer, he always complains about his neck, shoulder and back pain. Having to spend time of more than 10 hours per day sitting on the chair and constantly drafting and completing reports, his back started to develop sudden pain.
With the ErgoSilver Laptop Stand, he’s comfortably seated and those back pain gradually disappear. According to him, the stand really clear up some space on his desk. His table has now become pretty neat. We asked one of our colleagues, Jue, to demonstrate the two distinct positions; with and without the ErgoSilver Laptop Stand (as shown below).

It’s obvious that with the laptop stand, there’s no need to hunch. One can sit down comfortably with the back being supported by the chair. Such position allows one to be more organized and productive. We tried the same thing at home as well. Most of us love to casually work in the living room as there are times that we need to watch some TV programs while working.
In the living room, most of us just love to casually sit on the floor and do two things at the same time; working online (or browsing) while watching TV! This particular stand raise the notebook height to eye level by 15 cm. It’s the same thing if working on a proper office desk. Such height eliminates the need to hunch thus making back pain a history!
According to Primero Singapore website (Link):
“Ergosilver is an elegant aluminium laptop stand. It’s made of premium aluminium alloy, silver anodized and sandblasted so it’s absolutely gorgeous. It’s a beautiful accessory to place your computer on. It fits all sizes of Macbook and most 14″ standard PC and 15″ widescreen PC with keyboard depths of less than 27 cm.”

When we received the laptop stand, we immediately tried it at three places; 2 office working desks and at home. In all three places, we felt extremely comfortable using the laptop stand. True to what the website specified, all specifications and features are exactly same as described. There’s no single flaw that we can think of. It’s one simple design but it brings unexpected benefits.
There’s no serious installation or whatsoever set-up needed to use this ErgoSilver Laptop stand. All that one need to do is to place the laptop or notebook on the surface and start working! When not in use, simply store the stand and laptop in a different place and that should clear up the desk!
Since duplication is inevitable globally and in case you intend to get this particular laptop stand, do know that:
There have been some duplicates made by other retailers after the success of the Ergosilver. However, Primero have found that none of them even come close to the quality of their stand. Primero suggest asking for a close-up photo of the stand. If the stand is made by Primero, the surface will appear extremely even, as it is silver-anodized. Silver anodization is a process where the silver is electrically spread over the surface of the stand, giving it a consistency of 99.9% across the entire surface. This is similar to the process that the Macintosh goes through.
Apart from this beautiful ErgoSilver Laptop Stand, Primero Singapore do have other products that you can actually order online, eliminating the need to visit various furniture shops. Visit their website (Link) and have a look at their amazing design of furniture. Primero Singapore is now looking forward to expand their delivery service to Malaysia.
