Anyone who regularly works on a laptop will testify to that its name is somewhat misleading. These mobile computing power-houses can generate an awful lot of heat and make it very uncomfortable - and even painful - to lay one across your legs. What you need is something that's placed between your thighs and your laptop to help keep the heat away. Logitech has unveiled a new addition to its Lapdesk range that features a retractable multi-touch surface for those who like to swipe or scroll their way around the screen.

This isn't the first time Gizmag has featured a Logitech Lapdesk with a pull-out surface but the mouse pad surface of old has now given way to a 5-inch, retractable multi-touch surface. The new Logitech Touch Lapdesk N600 has been designed for use with Windows-based notebooks with up to 16-inch screens and also benefits from some physical shortcut buttons at the side for such things as volume control and launching the web browser.

It's powered by four AAA-sized batteries, which are claimed to last for up to six months, and connects wirelessly to the laptop placed on the main anti-slip surface via a supplied Logitech Unifying USB receiver. The N600 also benefits from multiple-layer heat-shielding to help keep the burning heat away from the user's legs.

The Logitech Touch Lapdesk N600 is due to hit shelves this month for US$69.99.
