Savvy says: Brilliant!
Because all of my work is computer based, I started looking around for something that would protect my legs from the heat of my laptop and allow me to work from my couch. My city apartment isn't very forgiving in terms of space, and I've been taking over my dining table to serve the role of a much needed desk. The bed desk ($45) is ergonomically constructed and has room for a laptop and more.
There are probably sleeker versions out there but I love the compartments on either side; they'll save your Blackberry from falling between the couch cushions and you can keep a bottle of water handy. And there you have it, all of your basic needs fit nicely into a space-saving, inexpensive mini-desk. You could even use it to serve breakfast in bed with the Sunday New York Times in one of the pockets!
Could you use something like the bed desk?
