If you’re currently in a work-from-home setup, then you know how it feels to be hunched over your laptop all day without the right support. The screen is often too low, leaving you to keep craning your neck and slumping your shoulders at an angle you’ll regret in the future. Planning to use a full-sized keyboard? You can’t, because the laptop is in the way and don’t even think about using it on the couch or bed, as that’s an even more uncomfortable position.

Thankfully, help comes in the form of laptop stands, which are designed to aid in improving your posture by angling your laptop at the appropriate eye level. We rounded up 12 of the best ones in this guide, which you can get from Amazon now.
