Logitech has announced a stylish new kit called the Casa Pop-up Desk. It’s aimed at laptop users who want a more desktop-like experience whether they’re at hunkered down at home or away on a long business trip.

The Casa Pop-up Desk is a three-piece combo. There’s the Casa Book, a folding stand that doubles as a storage case. It also features a small interior pocket for cables or other small accessories. The exterior of the Book features a textured cloth finish and a silicone strap, giving it the appearance of a journal when it’s closed.

Casa Keys and Casa Touch (logically enough) are the cordless keyboard and trackpad. They’re both rechargeable via USB-C, and Logitech says you can expect about 5 months of keyboarding and three weeks of trackpad use between charges.

Both peripherals connect via Bluetooth. Because they support Easy Switch, you can quickly switch among three paired devices.

When everything’s stowed inside the Casa Book it all weighs about 2.5 pounds. The closed Book measures 9 inches by 11.4 inches, just a touch smaller than a piece of A4 paper. At just over an inch thick it should fit neatly into whatever bag you’re using to tote your laptop.

The Casa Pop-up Desk comes in three colors: Nordic Calm (white), Bohemian Blush (pink) and Classic Chic (charcoal/black). So far it’s only listed for sale in the U.K., Australia and New Zealand — though all three colors currently show sold out on Logitech’s site, too.

When it’s back in stock, it’ll cost £179.99. That’s around $229 at today’s exchange rate.

  1. I like the look of it and it seems a great setup for those who travel a lot or work in various places like cafes. My only issue with it is the price. The price does not seem to reflect the value of the individual components and the premium for the set seems a tad high.

  2. Interesting. Wonder how the touchpad is standalone – there’s a dearth of them on the Windows side for some reason (last reasonably known brand to make one was Brydge, and,well, yea…)

  3. That’s really not a bad idea, but I’m just not interested in that specific keyboard and mouse set.

    I’m in the habit of using laptops with a wired 65%-size mechanical keyboard, and a USB wired mouse, and I use a laptop stand to lift the screen to a comfortable height (and reduce the footprint my laptop takes on the desk).

    This setup is worth my while because the keyboard I use is an enormous upgrade to my productivity.

    The keyboard being offered in this Casa thing looks just as bad as a laptop keyboard. I’ve never enjoyed typing on any of these chiclet-style keyboards. This doesn’t seem like it’s worth carrying around.

    1. It sounds like you’d be better served with a lightweight folding frame with this height, and a small (hand length) USB-C dock. If your nice keeb used dongles then you could unbag the stand, park the laptop and connect USB-C, and have the workstation together.

      But does having an origami stand help enough to add to the bag? Hmmm

  4. Stylish? It looks like a pile of cheap plastic objects.
    If you want to look stylish, I wouldn’t bet on success while using any kind of external keyboard and mouse. Or using any computer that isn’t a macbook. Or using a computer without a camera slowly panning around you.
    But as if my opinion is worth anything, I still think it would look better to use a laptop with a 360 degree hinge with a wireless keyboard and mouse, than to use this.
