    To redress the negative...

    I initially thought I would buy this online, but having read all of the reviews I decided it wasn't for me at all; too much money to waste on something that seemed not to work.

    I happened upon an Apple store when visiting my parents and found they had this stand there. They kindly got one out and put one of their 15" rMBP's on it (which is what I want it for). It worked absolutely fine and didn't seem likely to slip or slide at all, so I bought it. I've been using it everyday for about three weeks now and have no slipping issues at all, with what is currently their biggest and heaviest laptop. In fact, if I grab the front edge of the MBP and drag it towards me, the stand slides along the tabletop rather than the MBP sliding off the stand!

    It looks the part, but I've marked it one star down because as somebody else mentioned, at its very top setting the stand can be slightly lopsided. It takes a bit of fiddling to fix it in just the right place so that it's level and square on to the base. The hydraulic mechanism itself wasn't quite as solid and tactile as I was expecting either, but considering I'll probably only ever set it the once, it's not really an issue.

    Over all, very happy, but try it out to allay your fears if you're still not sure.

    The stand which compliments the MacBook

    Comes very nicely packaged. Lovely clean design, and useful when changing height.

    The non-slip feet which touches to MacBook are very effective. However the base which touches the desk is quite slippery. (On a wooden desk)

    Excellent build quality & looks

    I picked up one of these in the Regent Street store for use at work with my Air and I'm pleased with it. The rubber non slip arms hold the laptop in place and the adjustable height is good, although a bit more height adjustment would have been better. If you're very tall, this might be an issue as it's just about okay for me at normal desk height and I'm 5ft 10".

    Design wise, it looks great, however, as per usual, it's being obscured by a mass of cables...!
