    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. 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/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.

    No more back pain!

    This is a great product. It is 6" tall at its highest point, so I put my Macbook on boxes to see if it would be a good height! It was, but I thought I'd have some trouble typing on it. As it turns out, the stand is even better than I thought, as it has a downward slope, so I can easily reach the keyboard. I prefer a separate keyboard if I'm typing a lot, but for shorter things, it's not necessary. It makes a much bigger difference than I expected. I hadn't realized how much of my upper back, shoulder and neck pain came from slouching over my computer. So glad I bought it! Would recommend without hesitation.

    Perfect

    Very comfortable stand, I don't even need to add an external keyboard, it also helps me to keep my desk tidy. I wasn't sure to buy this since I have a lot of old stands at home, but this one is worth every penny.

    Perfect laptop stand.

    This stand has made my life better. Goodbye strained neck and shoulders! And to top it off, it looks great. The finish is the same as my MacBook. Well worth my money.

    Newest Obsession!

    I have been eyeing this product for quite sometime. My neck, back, and shoulders were constantly strained during long study sessions/school work. Beyond satisfied with my purchase as the mStand ergonomically friendly. If you decide to invest in this product, I highly recommend purchasing a mouse and a keyboard for additional comfort. Besides the luxury of comfort, this product is extremely attractive. Same material as the MacBooks - great quality!

    GREAT Product.

    this is a great product just received it today and I am so glad I choose this one over another stand. It is extremely sturdy positions my mac the perfect amount off the desk. I purchased mine just to give myself that extra little bit of space on my desk and I am amazed at how will it works for what I need it for. Matches the colour of my mac perfectly. Great product and Great stand

    The best laptop stand on the market

    Pros:

    * sturdy/rock solid - your MacBook isn't going to move
    * As the stand is designed to have your macbook angled towards you, the viewing angle is comfortable.
    * Flawless design when sitting next to any iMac/Cinema Display
    * Rubber sections on the stand that make sure you don't damage your Macbook, & it doesn't easily move around.

    Cons:

    *Keep the box for moving/traveling around.
    *If, you are short in height, save yourself time do some measuring, place your laptop on a flat surface, then raise it about 6". See if this is to your liking.

    The Best MBP Stand

    Have been using this for several years now. Works well with old and new MBP's. Helps ease neck pain and opens room on my desk for my keyboard, etc. Beautiful design and rock-solid. Best stand out there!

    LOVE THIS STAND

    I love this stand! It came nicely packaged and it's very solid. It's also very attractive looking and definitely not an eyesore like many other competitors. My macbook pro with retina 13" has yet to get hot while on this stand. I do I lot of work in photoshop which takes it's toll on my macbook and this stand has helped so much! You will not regret this purchase! I also have used the stand on my lap which is surprisingly comfortable! I'm no longer afraid of spills because worse case I can just clean the stand and it leaves my macbook safe. I used this same stand a few years back at work and also loved it then.. I didn't even realize it was the same stand until I received it in the mail. My previous one (stayed with my previous employer) remained looking new for a few years. I really like the cushions for the macbook and also for whichever surface you are using- no worrying about scratches!

    Five stars all the way!

    Really nice

    It looks like an official apple product and the quality is very high. My 13" MacBook pro looks very nice in it and the apple Bluetooth keyboard and mouse go well with it.

    The Best Stand

    I use this stand every day at work. It is the best stand I have used so far. I use it to lift my laptop up to eye level beside my monitor and I use an external keyboard / mouse.. great setup. I recommend.

    Just what I wanted and more

    I bought this so if I spilled something near my MacBook Pro it would afford it some protection. Fortunately I haven't had to experience that yet. I find it quite comfortable to use the keyboard when the MacBook is on the mStand. As long as your computer chair is height adjustable I can't see where there would be a problem with the level of the screen. Great looks too.

    Just what I needed

    Puts my 13-inch macbook at the right height for ergonomics and the camera and just looks cool on my desk. I had a wireless keyboard that is really put to good use using this stand...of course you probably wouldn't use this stand without a wireless keyboard and mouse. I've had 3 ladies whistle at my mStand today and offer favors to see it. True story.

    Great stand!

    This stand is exactly what I wanted - sturdy enough that if you occasionally need to you can use the trackpad & keyboard when the laptop is in the stand, perfect height, and good looking too, with a finish that matches the computer. Worth the price.

    Great Stand

    To everyone that has given this stand a bad review because it "shakes when you type" This stand is designed to be used with an external keyboard and mouse. It is not designed for you to be using the on-board keyboard/mouse. Do a little more research about laptop stands before making your purchase and then writing a negative review about something that wasn't deigned to do what you thought it did because you don't understand the purpose of a laptop stand.

    Surprised!

    I am absolutely surprised at how well this stand absorbs heat! I do a lot of video editing and graphic work on my laptop, and i've had a lot of heat issues, so i've had to buy cooling stations from Microsoft, and it was OK. But this absorbs the almost all the heat from my Mac and it's not even a cooling station! It's portable, sleek, and very well made, with a good design in mind. Great job!
