Where can I find a stand for a netbook? Or is there a website that shows me how to build one?

Not especially for Netbooks but Laptop Stand (http://www.onlinebargain.co.nz/laptopstand.html).

And all for a low low price of $150 ( hit buy now to get price) order now while stocks last :p

Sorry bit carried away there - to many infomercials on TV ;)

Also a few more shown here (http://www.shopbot.co.nz/laptop-other-accessories/laptop-accessories/new-zealand/1122) As well as more here (http://www.emax.co.nz/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1_6) - one there looks similar to the first link, but a fraction of the price.

Hi Ygk

Believe it or not I've just brought a clear Acrylic Laptop stand with three fans and Blue leds, powered by usb for the grand total of $5.95. Got it from Trade Me brand new!!

You could make your own, INSTRUCTABLES (http://www.instructables.com/tag/type-id/category-technology/) is a great site for instructions, not just for laptops stands, (cut to size), but for many other things as well.

Thanks for the link Burnzee on the Instructables website. Heaps of stuff on there.

Might have a go and build one myself yet.

Hi Yqk

Great but check THIS (http://www.trademe.co.nz/Computers/Laptops/Other/auction-382812641.htm) out first.

Hi Yqk

Yes, and it's pretty bloody cool. The blue Leds are out of it too. Reckon it's ideal for a netbook. It's is higher at the back than the front so it gives my Laptop a nice angle. ideal for typing. The lappie is bigger than the stand so it makes the computer appear to float. It is powered from the Usb but the plug has a straight through socket so you don't lose a outlet. Highly recommended.

Thanks for the link.
Just received my stand this morning.
I am impressed for the price!
Made just for my 12" hp notebook. :thumbs: The 4 rubber pads match up perfectly with the notebook's 4 rubber feet.

Hi Guys

Scubadoo, glad you got one, pretty cool, eh?

Pato, I have not done any testing on running the Laptop/Netbook Stands on battery power. However, my educated guess is yes but... What I mean by that is, as the battery will be powering both the computer and the stand's fans and Led's then it will have an effect. BUT the fans are fairly small and use Led's so shouldn't draw a lot of extra current anyway so the effect would be minimal. You could easily wire a switch to control the amount of fans working and/or turn the Leds off.

BURNZEEThanks for the info. It looks ideal for my Netbook. Cheaper enough to bin if it isn't satisfactory!!

Speaking of netbook stands, I have just about finished building mine. All it needs now is painting.

Hi Gary67


How can they even make them for that price?

To answer that question, you've got to understand how Asians do business.

The Asians make things in bulk. Each unit sold they take a little profit. Their products are therefore sold in bulk. A lot of little profits equals multibuck$. Our way of doing business is to make big profit from each unit so kiwi's business owners charge like wounded bulls.

The Chinese make the parts, assemble them, put in a coloured printed box. Then send them to New Zealand cheaper than I can make one. I do a lot of wheeling and dealing on Trade Me and I've never had a hassle buying from the Asians.

As we have a trade agreement with China, it's time for our businesses to wake up and smell the coffee.
