      Just what I wanted

      Saw the stand on display in Covent Garden and knew it was exactly what I needed. My main monitor is 30" but I like to keep my chat clients on the Macbook scree Saw the stand on display in Covent Garden and knew it was exactly what I needed. My main monitor is 30" but I like to keep my chat clients on the Macbook screen out of the way. Putting the Macbook on the desk next to large screen meant I had to keep looking down to see the screen. With this stand I can raise the Macbook up and position in right up against the edge of my monitor closer to being horizontally central. The base of the stand serves as a useful place to leave my iPhone charging hidden away under the Macbook. There is quite a bit of room underneath as the arms don't slant down too much like on other stands. It really makes everything look way neater and I can switch my focus between screens more quickly.

      Do not believe the negatives... seriously

      Having read the first few reviews I almost didn't buy this stand. I did in the end because of one review that was positive and seriously questioned the comments Having read the first few reviews I almost didn't buy this stand. I did in the end because of one review that was positive and seriously questioned the comments about Mac Books sliding off at the slightest touch... really? Well all I can say is my experience is definitely not. The stand arrived well packed and already assembled in its box. The rubber surface on the arms that provides the, quite frankly, awesome grip to secure your device in place has a protective film over it which needs removing. Then you simply place your valuable piece of kit onto the arms and they will not let go in a month of Sundays. I even tried some gradually increasing lateral pressure to my MBP to test the stands stickiness and stability and all that happened after enough pressure was applied, was that the the stand (with the my MBP still firmly in place) moved on my desk surface. I should probably mention that my MBP also has a Speck shell case on it which probably provides less traction than the actual base of the Mac Book. In addition to its excellent gripping ability, the stand is well designed, is of a very high quality and does exactly what Twelve South say it does. I am very pleased with it and would strongly recommend this stand.

      Quality Uplift

      To some this may seem like a very expensive riser stand. If like me you like to sit at a desk and use a larger monitor this stand is a real bonus. Sure, there a To some this may seem like a very expensive riser stand. If like me you like to sit at a desk and use a larger monitor this stand is a real bonus. Sure, there are other models out there but Twelve South offer great Apple only peripherals of high build quality and good design. As this is adjustable you can match the screen heights between whatever MacBook you use with your monitor. You can also use is alone with a mouse and keyboard and use you MacBook as the single display adjusted to a height more in keeping with a monitor as opposed to the MacBook lying flat on the surface. As it is matte silver in appearance is matches MacBooks external appearance well. If you want a quality product for your already expensive Apple hardware to sit on then this is surely the only one that you need. If you are a bit frugal you may want to stick to a cheaper plastic option that will obviously do the job but not be as high quality as this.

      Ideal if you want to break your laptop - Read this before you buy

      I bought this stand thinking that I was buying a quality product from the apple website, but be warned this is an expensive piece of junk. Firstly the base of t I bought this stand thinking that I was buying a quality product from the apple website, but be warned this is an expensive piece of junk. Firstly the base of the stand has a cheap strip of slippery plastic, so if you or anyone else walks past and accidentally bumps into you laptop it will slide around as if it were on an ice rink. Secondly the arms have some very soft rubber if you have a heavy laptopn like my MacBook Retina 15" it will just slide off and fall to the ground when you are not there! Warning: do not leave your laptop unattended on this stand it will plumet to the ground!! I have had my £2000+ laptop fall on the ground countless times and dented! Thanks Twelve South, If you like your macbook please take my advice and leave this stand well alone.
