Have you ever found yourself in need of a whiteboard? Sure you can grab a piece of paper, but it's not the same as interacting with someone on a whiteboard. Of course, there are plenty of portable whiteboards, but the problem with them is that it's yet another thing to carry around. Enter the DrawTop.
The DrawTop is an innovative creation that turns the top of your laptop (a previously unused space) into a whiteboard.
When I first heard about it (I work with its creator, Ryan Mitchell) I figured it was more gimmicky and wasn't really something that I'd use for an extended amount of time. However, after just one day of having it on my 11" MacBook Air, I'm finding it to be very useful, and I'm also getting a lot of people telling me how innovative it is.
The DrawTop itself comes with a kit that includes four Expo dry erase markers of different colors, a microfiber erase cloth, and adhesive velcro dots, for attaching your markers to the laptop, if desired.
As you can see from the pictures below, it doesn't take away from the look of the laptop as much as you would expect, and it's actually a lot of fun to have a drawing surface available at any time.
The DrawTop is priced affordably at $10, or $14 for two vinyl whiteboards.
