I saw a video of Sunny Williams

she moved the laptop around. Go to time position 1:34. Is this articulated arm available to purchase for consumers on Earth?

    $\begingroup$ Is there any reason to believe that the ISS articulated arm could support a laptop's weight in normal earth gravity? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @DJohnM Indeed, from the movements in the film it looks like it won't. $\endgroup$ Sep 16, 2016 at 15:54

Here is a cropped,annotated still from the video showing the arm.

enter image description here

The arm can be found in the ISS Intravehicular Equipment Catalog as MULTIUSE BRACKET PART NO. SEG33107631-301, pictured therein (in a low-res fashion).

A vendor is not given, but we in Spaceflight Training colloquially referred to these gadgets as "Bogen arms". The online Bogen catalog does not show an exact match, but this is close.
