      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!

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!

      Mine's not wobbly...

      My HiRise Stand for MacBook arrived today and I have to say I'm delighted with it. It seems very well built and sturdy and everything appears to be even. My o My HiRise Stand for MacBook arrived today and I have to say I'm delighted with it. It seems very well built and sturdy and everything appears to be even. My only criticism is that I had assumed that it would be possible to adjust the level of tilt, but it isn't. Apart from that, I'm very pleased. As to the previous comments posted, I wonder whether one was just a bad example - it would be interesting to know if the buyer's second purchase was the same. As to the other, yes, the packaging oozes class and expense and I'm sure that does add to the price, but since when has that put off an Apple purchaser? Unpackaging an Apple product is one of those little joys that makes Apple what it is. I'm delighted that Twelve South thought enough about their customers that they would try to emulate that experience also. Good for them. Finally on the price, yes it is a bit costly, but I was prepared to pay the extra in order to have the adjustable stand. As it turns out, I have already adjusted the stand once because I decided I didn't actually need it quite the way up to the top.

      Great Stand I'm ordering a second one.

Its solid, and the laptop does not wiggle, or slide its as solid as a rock. Its raised up so the bottom of the screens match up, with the laptop angled at approximately 30 deg's. This leaves room under the edge of the laptop for my Logitech wireless trackball. As soon as I finish here I'm ordering a second one to keep in my RV for use when I'm on the road. I can't help but wonder if some people are using it upside down, or failing to remove the protective transparent covering over the rubber pads. Mike

      Doesn't work properly and doesn't look like Apple

      It's not made as well as usual 'apple' things. Materials are not pleasant, and it's not made accurately. Top and bottom parts are not aligned to each other. And It's not made as well as usual 'apple' things. Materials are not pleasant, and it's not made accurately. Top and bottom parts are not aligned to each other. And the most awful thing: it doesn't stand firmly, steady. The top cylinder with laptop holder wobbles even when it's up for a half. When it's in its upper position, it has no support to stay aligned and steady at all. And it goes with difficulty up and down along an inner cylinder so as you can damage yourself while adjusting its height.

      DON'T BUY!!! (I would not even give it a 1 star rating)

      Way over priced AND it's junk!!! Wobbly, height adjustment doesn't lock good and the amount it adjusts is hardly worth it! The box it came in is nicer than this Way over priced AND it's junk!!! Wobbly, height adjustment doesn't lock good and the amount it adjusts is hardly worth it! The box it came in is nicer than this stand. If I was not going to return it I would use the box to set my mac pro on, not this stand!!!
