I searched across multiple platforms for a steady and good-for-value laptop tray, and settled on Omnidesk's laptop mount. The laptop mount can be widened to hold a 17" laptop. The clamps at the sides are also adjustable so as to hold the laptop securely in place and avoid blocking important ports that are found on the sides of my laptop. Delivery was fast too!
A sturdy and durable laptop mounted as described. I would recommend this to everyone to own it.
