Is this a good ergonomic solution for infrequent laptop use?

We spotted this product from IKEA as a neat solution for infrequent use of laptops in the home.  It probably does work OK for domestic situations but the ergonomics of it would need some work for a commercial application.


The main problem is that there is no height adjustability which you'd need to account for the variety of people who might use the facility.

But we could see the benefits of something that took up little space when not in use and allowed walk-up use. It provoked some interesting discussions in our office on solutions for drop-in hotdesking.
