You can see a picture of a very similar one here: http://www.staples.com/Altra-Adjustable-Mobile-Laptop-Desk/product_729375 . (Mine doesn't have the mousepad.) I put my pillow on the wider section and instructions on the narrower one. The sections can be tilted to make viewing/working very comfortable.
