Hello @Jersey , here I am. Honestly I think it is awesome that you took the time to model this! It makes it really easy to understand your concept. I overall understand your need and the problem you aim to solve. I am myself i big lover of great “labability”, so I am one of your target users
This is my first answer to a post so be gentle… these are some comments about it
About your idea I agree with what already mentioned by other members like @dibadibadu and @exialpho about the weight distribution problem. And how this product concept would suggest a type of use that might let the product to fall once you lift your hands from the keyboard area or are not carefull.
This is a more general comment: connection points (accessory - to device) are usually tricky and fascianting challenges. I am concerned that in this concept the connection points are in tricky parts of the device and magnets might not be strong enough of feasible enough for your type of use. Usually accessory connects on the side with a case or on the back ( wide areas) to avoid small connecting areas. So that the all can be strong enough and avoid small parts that might get broken quickly. Or did you have other thoughts about connections? or contact points between the accessory and the device?
As mentioned by @SyrtakiVampir a folio cover can be an improvement for what you are seeking. Usually if the reinforcement of the folio is thick enough in combination with sturdy connection points it can provide a better “lapability”.
In this case with 2 in 1, as you probably saw, the device kickstand is kind of left out. The back of the folio cover provides what the kickstand is there for.
One problem that still remains is that usually the keyboard is not anyhow connected with the folio so in the end the typing experience on the lap is a bit better but not really as good as a laptop of course. And the main problem of the weight distributions still remain even if it is slightly improved.
SLEEVE AS BASE?
What do you think about other simple approaches. Like @yaustar and @Masters888 mentioned. Can some sort of sleeve or other very similar products provide the experience of lapability you are seeking? Can the weight problem be solved here? So “what we use to carry the device around” has some sort of use after the device is “pulled out of it”. Or what do u think about this?
Overall I think that this is quite interesting topic, since we are not talking about skins, protecting cover or similar. So we are not designing to add protection or a certain feature to a product but we are providing a certain usability feature that another similar product category already delivers (laptops).
