enter image description hereFound this bugger crawling across my laptop. Any help identifying would be appreciated. After a bunch of googling it appears to be close to a lady beetle larva. I am located in north east USA.

It looks most like a common Green Lacewing larva - Chrysoperla rufilabris. Lacewings are considered a benefit in the garden because they effectively feed on aphids and other soft bodied garden pests. Here are some links that may be of further help.
