The Chairiot by Spectrum Industries is a multitasking option for today's technology classrooms. The Dedicated Laptop Chairiot is an L-shaped desk that functions as a laptop computer desk and task chair. The desk features a laptop-retention tray that safely secures laptops to the desk to prevent them from falling onto the floor. The desk's high-pressure laminate top protects its surface from wear. The Chairiot's adjustable swivel seat accommodates any student with easy entry and exit. In addition, the 50 lb. desks can be easily rearranged or clustered for group work.
