      Fine, as long as you don't use a cinema Display with your laptop.

      This is a good stand, Sturdy, well built and attractive. The little hole for routing cables in the back is useful: as long as you don't have a cinema display. T This is a good stand, Sturdy, well built and attractive. The little hole for routing cables in the back is useful: as long as you don't have a cinema display. The DVI connector for a cinema display (or any other display) will not fit through the hole in the back. This was disappointing, because the usb/firewire cables that are attached to the DVI connector of a cinema display are not long enough to permit the cinema cable to go through the side and the remaining cables to go underneath. This is a pretty serious design flaw, given that the photo of the stand in their packaging shows the stand being used with a Macbook Pro, next to a cinema display ... cables conspicuously absent from the photo.

I usually setup my new MacBook Pro on this stand along with wireless keyboard and mouse, just like having a mini desktop. My family use this stand a lot.

      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 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.

      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. 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.

      Best-In-Class MacBook Riser

      I needed a decent stand for my MacBook Air to get me out of ergonomics jail, and picked up this along with the Twelve South HiRise. After side-by-side usage/tes I needed a decent stand for my MacBook Air to get me out of ergonomics jail, and picked up this along with the Twelve South HiRise. After side-by-side usage/testing for the past few days, the mStand has come out the clear winner. It’s solid beyond belief, and doesn’t move at all. Where I thought that the adjustability of the HiRise would make it a winner, it was the sturdiness of the mStand that makes it vastly superior. This is a case where simple form outweighs attempts at higher functionality. Pros: Rock solid simple build functionality. Front lip and solid rubber bumpers keeps the laptop in place securely and confidently. Designed to be able to use keyboard and trackpad if you don’t have an external keyboard Cable management cutout helps keep cords tidy and reduces line-of-sight distraction. Price Cons: None for me. I like the mStand for all the reasons that I thought I would not like it. This is an excellent product, at a decent price given the build quality.
