      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!

      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.

      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!

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.

      macbook slipping off the base

      I've had this product for just under a year and I'm ready to trash it. My macbook pro keeps slipping off the base - the rubber around the edges that hold it ha I've had this product for just under a year and I'm ready to trash it. My macbook pro keeps slipping off the base - the rubber around the edges that hold it have worn to a slick surface, creating a slip n slide for my mac. You can't adjust the tilt (only the riser), so of course there is no way of fixing this issue. Shop online for something elsewhere, functionality and design are not one here.
