As the title of this thread states I was wondering if it's ok (for the laptop) to set my monitor on top of it...I have a 17" HP laptop and the monitor is around 27' (I forget the exact measurement).

My main condern is whether this is ok for the laptop. By the way, the laptop sits on and fan pad base thingy to keep it cool.

Thanks for your help !

I would get a stand designed for exactly this purpose rather than subject the laptop to the weight of the monitor. HP might even make something for your laptop. If not, any office store should have generic metal or plastic stands can support the monitor and let you side the laptop under.

I wouldn't recommend it. Depending on the particular laptop model, it may or may not be able to withstand the weight. But I wouldn't risk it. I suggest something like this: Kensington K60087 Accessory - Monitor - Newegg.com

Make sure you find one that fits your laptop underneath. I just picked a random one to show you.

No no no no no no no.
Absolutely not.
I don't care if it's a Panasonic Toughbook. Well, ok, MAYBE a Panny Toughbook. But a standard laptop?
No no no no no no no.
Absolutely not.
