wouldn't that mod make it a little harder to use in your lap.I would like to see a different design of the kickstand. The left and right edge should be angled at different degrees, say 15 and 30, so it would support the Surface in portrait mode at t two different angles the way it does in landscape.
The kickstand have the width of the Surface today, I visualize it as being a total of 1 to 1/2 inch smaller. Do you think that would make it harder to be stable in your lap?wouldn't that mod make it a little harder to use in your lap.
there is a Sony product that was supposed to be a surface competitor but the drawback was the stand was directly in the middle and about an inch wide, making it impossible to use on anything other than a table top.
Probably not. Part of the (vertical) stand stability problem may be the angle it emerges from the body (when the stand extended of course). At the maximum angle it still isn't perpendicular.The kickstand have the width of the Surface today, I visualize it as being a total of 1 to 1/2 inch smaller.

This is how I imagine the design.
And as I view it now after uploading it I realize that the angles should be mirrored. Shouldn't do these things after bedtime. I hope my idea still comes over. The angle starts at the edge where the kickstand is joined in the middle of the backside. I'll make a new one tomorrow when I'm not tired.
I edited the photo on my phone, this is why I also need a Surface, sometimes those screens are just too small for what you want to do.
