SurfShelf laptop tray2Here's a long overdue innovation that helps alleviate the inevitable boredom that comes with working out on a stationary exercise machine.

Google and Dell have installed SurfShelfs into all of their fitness facilities. Jason Chen, Editor of called it "one of my favorite inventions ever.”

The SurfShelf securely attaches any laptop or portable DVD player to your treadmill, elliptical trainer, exercise bike or stairmaster. It fits 99% of existing stationary exercise machine models. It also works great as a book holder.

Regular laptop computing tasks using a mouse and keyboard are possible but awkward. The SurfShelf is best suited for watching video -- either a DVD or on YouTube, Hulu etc. It's also good for games that only use the directional keys or a game pad.

The SurfShelf also comes with a free membership to, a video entertainment site built specifically for SurfShelf users.

    I would like to know if the shelf shakes badly.

    Hey Steve,

    Would the laptop holder be compatible with these?

    My only concern would be the amount of weight that the tray can hold. I’m not thinking about putting something heavy but a piece of mind knowing it can hold X times the amount of weight of a large laptop.

    Hey Marley,

    I would give it a try. It’s 100% MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE! Made of 100% super strong Polycarbonate and is fully adjustable. If Google and Dell are using it then it’s a cinch to be a great product. Fits 99% treadmills, bikes and ellipticals so the odds are with you no matter what machine you pick.
    And please after using it for awhile come back and let all of us know how you liked it!
