New York, May 23, 2007 — Humanscale’s award-winning L2 Notebook Manager received high marks in the Editors’ Choice Product Review Spotlight in the May 2007 issue of Buildings magazine.
The L2 received at least four stars (in a five-star scale) in all four rating criteria, including four stars in both “Functionality” and “Design,” and four and a half stars in “Ease of Use” and “Durability.” The review highlights the L2’s dual capabilities as a functioning laptop holder and document organizer.
“There are some things in my office I could do without,” one editor noted. “This notebook manager is not one of them.”
The L2 allows users to take advantage of their notebook’s high-resolution LCD screen and to enjoy the comfort of operating a full-size external keyboard and mouse. This turns a notebook into a comfortable and fully adjustable desktop solution that minimizes the long-term risks and much of the discomfort and strain associated with prolonged notebook computer use. Use of the L2 can decrease the risks of carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive strain injuries.

Features on the L2 include 5" height adjustment, swivel base, in-line document holder, cord management, security keyholes, and heat ventilation. The L2 can also accommodate most docking stations.   Because of its advanced ergonomic design, the L2 Notebook Manager has been honored with numerous awards. In recent years, the L2 earned the Attendees’ Choice Award at the National Ergonomics Conference and Expo, and received a Grand Prize in the Innovations competition presented by Buildings magazine. Additionally, the L2 was recognized with the GOOD DESIGN™ Award by the Chicago Athenaeum, and was the recipient of the Ergonomic Excellence Award from the Furniture Industry Research Association (FIRA).
