      mStand v.s. HiRise for MacBook

      I've been using the mStand for a little over a year now, but when Twelve South came out with their new HiRise for MacBook stand I figured I would give it a try. I've been using the mStand for a little over a year now, but when Twelve South came out with their new HiRise for MacBook stand I figured I would give it a try. I'm not going to compare unboxing because functionality it what ultimately matters. I dock/undock my Early 2011 MacBook Pro roughly 5-10 times a week. What is most important to me is that it is a seamless transition. Have laptop, put on stand, and connect cables. The mStand excels at this with its "feet" to catch the laptop and make perfect positioning an ease with each use. The HiRise however, does not have such a feature and this can become a tedious task to get the same position as you had once before. Placing your $3k MacBook Pro on a stand shouldn't be a guessing game, and you definitely shouldn't be worried that it might fall off given the incorrect position. Stand placement is another big issue for me and honestly, I didn't realize it was until I got the HiRise. The stand shouldn't move once placed in the proper position on my desk. The mStand doesn't move. The HiRise does, and abhorrently so. Lastly, elevation is also critical. While the HiRise will get the top of your MacBook Pro screen to roughly 15 1/2", the mStand will give you a full inch more. There is also more downward angle on the body of the Macbook Pro with the mStand. The is bound to be more beneficial to heat dissipation. I have also found it makes it easier to use the keyboard in those instances I forget to turn Bluetooth back on before docking my MacBook Pro. P.S. With the HiRise height set to the lowest point, the back(where the back of your laptop would sit) is at 3 5/8" and the front is at 2 1/8".

      It Does Stick! People are using it wrong!

      Great Product, everyone that says that it does not stick and that the macbook slides off is using the product upside down! The V shape part of the product is w Great Product, everyone that says that it does not stick and that the macbook slides off is using the product upside down! The V shape part of the product is where the macbook sits on, and the base that sits on the desk is the rectangular part. Please consult the pictures on the box before using and criticizing. Personally, I love the product, it may not have the ability to change the tilt, but the height adjustments are great, the product is built strong and sturdy, and I love the design ascetics of the product!

      Disappointed

      My High Rise stand arrived today, and it is very well made, and looks great. Sadly though it does not hold either my MacBook Air or MacBook Pro steady or sec My High Rise stand arrived today, and it is very well made, and looks great. Sadly though it does not hold either my MacBook Air or MacBook Pro steady or securely enough. Both machines just rest on the support arms, but move about both front to back and side to side when touched, even lightly. This gives the impression that it is going to fall off. This may not be a problem if you intend to never touch the machine once it is one the stand, but if like me you will have to still use the keys from time to time this may not be the one for you. Sadly had to return the stand.

      Poorly Made

      Stand was poorly made. The top of the stand would rock back and forth. Twelve South did not support me on this item. I replaced this item with Rain Design mS Stand was poorly made.

      Too low!

      Despite some of the warnings I ordered one from Amazon. I'm not having any of the slippage problems people talk about, but I ordered for ergnomic reasons -- and Despite some of the warnings I ordered one from Amazon. I'm not having any of the slippage problems people talk about, but I ordered for ergnomic reasons -- and the darn thing is about 2-3 inches too low. Sure, it's better than just having it on my desk, but even at the highest setting I'm still having to look down. And I'm not very tall. Returning it.
