I have a 17in laptop and this table is huge! Its plenty big enough to game on. I had bought a cheaper table for $20 but it was such cheap stuff that I sent it back. This one is expensive, but Id rather pay $80 for something nice that I will actually use, rather than $20 on something unusable. The cheap table had sharp edges that hurt my arms, but this one has a nice rounded edge that doesnt hurt at all. The actual top itself is made of much nicer material, its not splitting apart at all like the cheap table I bought before. The cell phone holder in the little drawer has a rubber liner so not to damage your phone, I thought that was nice and considerate. Just trust me, if youve bought cheap tables in the past, you will see an immediate difference in quality when you open this one.
