I used foam core board and l brackets. I just colored the L-brackets with a black sharpie and since the monitor part was black fondant and the brackets were on the back anyway. Held up w/o any issues. Pic is in my photos.

When I made my laptop cake, I got my hubby to make me a thin wooden base for the laptop which was made up of a horzontal bottom and the monitor wasn't a straight vertical, I had him make it so it looked as though it was leaning back. He has to put some small wedges in to hold it up but it worked really well. I made the bottom part, (the keyboard) out of cake and covered in black fondant. I made all the keys individually and stuck them on after. I placed the laptop on top of a larger half sized sheet cake, tis would be the bit they would eat. Worked really well. Think it's in my photos have a look.
