    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 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 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 The older comments on the rear 'hole size' are out of date now.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. 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.

    Perfect

    Very comfortable stand, I don't even need to add an external keyboard, it also helps me to keep my desk tidy. I wasn't sure to buy this since I have a lot of old stands at home, but this one is worth every penny.

    Best of the best

    It is my first laptop's stand which really impressed me for its astonished design. It gives a great angle vision while i am dealing with my drawing work. The price is really more expensive than other products. Bear in mind, pay more if it benefits you more. ^^ Enjoy

    Stylish and practical stand

    Received this today and now my desk is tidy again, and my 13" Macbook Pro is at a nice comfortable height for working with.

    It also seems that they have acted on the earlier criticism, as the cable tidy hole on the rear of the stand is now much larger (2" diameter) and easily takes any type of cable/plug.

    Fab piece of kit!

    Been using this product for quite some time now and it is superb! I was using an X-Stand before, but sold it to a customer who needed one in a hurry and I don't regret getting one of these.

    It helps keep the Macbook Pro I use on it nice & cool & it is a very sturdy stand, rock solid 10 out of 10!

    Waited for this one.

    This stand is simple, beautifully made and elegant! It supports my MacBook Pro 13" perfectly, it complements the laptop and wireless keyboard.

    It's a pity that the cable hole isn't in the shape of an Apple!

    I like it!

    Beautifully shaped to go with the MB and MBP and - if you've got the Apple LED display - wow! The laptop is held securely by the stand's front lip as well as the silicone rubber pads. The hole in the back? - big enough for me. The stand frees up space on your desk so you can put things underneath.

    You will need to get a keyboard as the laptop is far too high to type comfortably. But an Apple keyboard harmonises so well.

    Ok, I know it's expensive, but...

    Perfect for desktop replacement scenarios

    I use this stand with a late 08 MBP 17" together with an Apple Wireless Keyboard + Mighty Mouse, in a desktop replacement scenario. It performs exactly as it should, and complements the design of the Mac beautifully. Well worth the cost IMHO - and the set-up was eagerly approved by the company's health and safety officer (a minor miracle in itself!)

    A Little Gem

    This is very solid and there is minimal bounce when you type. It compliments the Mac beautifully and from certain angles my MacBook looks like it is floating above the table. Obviously it also keeps the Mac cool too. An absolute joy.
