      Fine, as long as you don't use a cinema Display with your laptop.

      This is a good stand, Sturdy, well built and attractive. The little hole for routing cables in the back is useful: as long as you don't have a cinema display. T This is a good stand, Sturdy, well built and attractive. The little hole for routing cables in the back is useful: as long as you don't have a cinema display. The DVI connector for a cinema display (or any other display) will not fit through the hole in the back. This was disappointing, because the usb/firewire cables that are attached to the DVI connector of a cinema display are not long enough to permit the cinema cable to go through the side and the remaining cables to go underneath. This is a pretty serious design flaw, given that the photo of the stand in their packaging shows the stand being used with a Macbook Pro, next to a cinema display ... cables conspicuously absent from the photo.

I usually setup my new MacBook Pro on this stand along with wireless keyboard and mouse, just like having a mini desktop. My family use this stand a lot.

      No More Hunching Over My Laptop

      I purchased this along with a Magic Keyboard and Magic Trackpad 2 and all I can say is they should rename this the Magic mStand and sell it as a kit. I use the I purchased this along with a Magic Keyboard and Magic Trackpad 2 and all I can say is they should rename this the Magic mStand and sell it as a kit. I use the stand for my 17" MBP and it tremendously improves my desktop computing experience. Ditto to all the other positive reviews, it is sturdy (my cats keep rubbing against my perched laptop and it does not slide on the desk or in the stand), stylish (perfectly matches my laptop, keyboard and trackpad) and good height to correct the ergonomics of using a laptop at a desk. As the 1 star reviewer's have stated the screen does bounce a bit when typing directly on the laptop's keyboard while in the stand, but that is not an issue for my setup since I am using a wireless keyboard.

      Excellent quality, stability and ergonomics

      I needed a stand like this to prevent neck and arm strain. It avoids this by raising the MacBook Pro to my eye level. I also use it at a distance that is ideal I needed a stand like this to prevent neck and arm strain. It avoids this by raising the MacBook Pro to my eye level. I also use it at a distance that is ideal for my vision. As I am short sighted I can now use my Macbook without my glasses. It is very high quality, rock solid to use with a separate keyboard and mouse (both Apple), on its own, or alongside a 27 inch 4K Dell pro monitor. It also doubles up as a fantastic reading lectern and it also works well with my Lenovo X series machines. It is not cheap but the health and ergonomic benefits make it a sound investment that will last a long time. The older comments on the rear 'hole size' are out of date now. The hole at the back can fit many cables through it. A strong recommendation to buy. I am now looking into some other Rain Design tech as they make several good quality and highly regarded accessories.

      Does what I wanted

      Pro's: mStand keeps my MacBookPro 15 inch at an excellent eye level. I use it with an apple keyboard with a two button mouse; I don't use the laptop key board. Pro's: mStand keeps my MacBookPro 15 inch at an excellent eye level. I use it with an apple keyboard with a two button mouse; I don't use the laptop key board. My laptop is secure, stable while I use it this way. I haven't measured laptop's temperature w/o or w/ the mStand. I haven't yet weighed the mStand, but I know Aluminum's heat capacity. I plug the laptop in only while it's on the stand. My old Macbook screen burned out after re-charging it in portrait position in a briefcase-I'm not going to take any more risks with my MacBook Pro w/Retina Display-too expensive!!! I'm not going to measure max temperature of laptop w/o mStand for same reason. Cons: None so far; I don't expect any in the future. Summary: mStand has been excellent for how I use my laptop.
