I would rate 5 stars, but the cable management should have a cover behind the monitor and and the upright cover should have larger capacity allowing more cables to be covered. Also, Laptop mount should sit closer, I’m short and I really like the design but I can’t reach the keyboard, I don’t always connect the laptop on the mount to the keyboard on the desk.
After detailed help from Altwork, I easily installed the laptop tray on my workstation. Easier still was placing my laptop securely onto the tray. I take it off and replace it as needed. I still haven't explored using the laptop in that position. It is hard to reach the keyboard, so I have to play with dual displays. I'm hoping to read my journal there while working on the main monitor.
Love, love, love my Alt station. It took a "moment" to put it together with some bumps along the way but technical support was great. The only suggestion I have is for the backrest to have more padding. I find it a bit hard as I was used to a very well padded leather chair before.
The monitor mount works fine, but my laptop is too thick to fit comfortably under the pegs. the front of the laptop sits about 2 inches off of the mount.
This is beautifully designed and functions as it’s supposed to, unfortunately it doesn’t articulate at all making it just out of arms reach. Having a 16” MacBook Pro with touchbar, I would like to be able to use it without needing to strain in order to reach it. Also be aware of the extra clearance space it will need on the left side of the desk, the original spot I had the chair in was no longer sufficient once I attached the laptop mount.
Thanks for your feedback, Eitan! You're correct - the upper laptop mount was designed to accommodate a laptop as a second monitor but not facilitate keyboard access. In your situation (planning to use touchbar), a side table would likely be a better solution. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to return your upper laptop mount.
