This stand is definitely worth the price, it's functional and doesn't need alot to do its job. It fit my 15.6 inch laptop no prob, and I tested if for that but I intend to attach a flat tray or piece of wood to use it as a lap tray for coloring and other lap hobbies. I think it will do well! It is sturdy for what it is. The package is very compact and it's definitely storage friendly. Doesn't take up any room. It's about 12" long, 3" wide or narrower, and an inch thick when folded up for storage.
