    you can type whilst on this stand.

    For several months i have been putting my macbook pro on 3 thick books to raise it up to a more suitable height on my desk. I bought the ghost stand half expecting it would not be stable enough to type into the laptop whilst it is on the stand. I am pleased to say that my macbook is perfectly stable on the stand and i can type without any problems. Whilst on the stand the macbook is inclined at about 5 degrees which feels comfortable. There are no concerns of slippage off the stand. The stand looks amazing. It isn't very hard to put together just follow the simple instructions in the box. Make sure you have the pieces in the right place by judging the insignia's on the pieces.

    Stylish and great design !!

    Really happy with buying this product, looks great a lot better angle and better cooling already, even when typing my MacBook Pro does not move, only down side is £30 and once erected it's not advised to take apart so could be bulky if transporting, great if stating as a desktop. Will keep updated.

    Macbook keeps sliding off

    The stand looks pretty and elegant. However, anytime I rest my MacBook Pro on it, it slowly slides off which is a real pain. It would help if there was some sort of clipping mechanism to attach your device with (just a suggestion).

    Beautiful

    This stand is basic, but it is purely beautiful. The packaging is fantastic and high quality, assembly is simple, and now my desk feel like a control centre! I can sit in my chair and get a near perfect ergonomic positioning, which is very important in a desk job! It also looks beautiful either in use or not.

    Easily Snapped

    Just purchased this, and followed the assembly instructions provided. Unfortunately, both sections of the stand shattered into several very sharp pieces and flew everywhere trying to get the top section to lock together. I'm still finding little sharp bits in my carpet after it practically exploded in my hands. It also says that it's not meant to be disassembled which would be very inconvient for someone wishing to use it in multiple locations. Spend the money on something that is made with better quality materials-especially when it's meant to support such an expensive computer.

    Love mine!

    I've had mine for about a year and a half (or two and a half). I got it on a pre-Christmas sale from amazon. I love it. It works great with my Macbook Pro, and also with my work Dell. I use mine to elevate my laptop so that it sits just next to my external monitor. It gives me a second screen that is right next to the external one rather than having to look down at the laptop monitor and then back up at the external one. Now I just scan horizontally. I use this every day and it does just that. I don't actually see the advantage of using it the way TwelveSouth shows on their website, with no external monitor hooked up. I see several reviews mentioning that the stand is wobbly. Mine was that way at first, but I pulled the inner piece into the outer piece a little further and it really tightened things up. I haven't had any problems since.

    This is not designed to be taken apart and put back together, and TwelveSouth mentions that on their website, so if you're looking for a travelling stand, this is not the one for you.

    All in all, it's really been a great stand. I use it with an external keyboard and mouse, but it's sturdy enough to type on if I wanted to. I felt it was a great deal at the $25 I paid for it, but if mine were to break today, I would have no issues buying another one at full price.

    A Perfect Stand!

    I have a 2015 MBP w/ Retina and it fits like a dream. It was very easy to assemble and it works great! It's a little wobbly when there's nothing on it but once my laptop's resting on it, it's sturdy and it looks great! I would highly recommend this stand to anyone!

    Good stand

    This stand aren't the best built quality you can get from the market or even compare with the other stands from TwelveSouth, they broke when I use heavy force but it still works fine which is why I'm giving it a five star,good for tables that are made with steel to Al, looks really cool from 1-2 meters way, overall, really good

    Great stand except Macbook keeps sliding off

    I purchased the stand a few weeks ago. Pleased with the design, height etc... there is just one problem... my macbook keeps on sliding off! This isn't ideal as a couple of times when I've left the room for a short period of 10 minutes or so I've found my macbook pro crashed into my keyboard below. This is repeatedly happening so I have to always remove my macbook and constantly readjust it. I wondered if it's because I have a 2010 MacBook Pro which is heavier than the newer models. Unfortunately because of this I cannot recommend the platform.

    Looks good and very ergonomic

    I would just point out, though, that you cannot dismantle this stand after assembling it.
    Portability would give this stand extra value especially for those who work in different locations and would appreciate a portable stand for their laptops.

    broken after one year

    At the beginning, the product was quite good and stable. But after several times of disassembling, one of the two pieces was broken. I used it for one year without disassembling since it was little broken. Finally, this desktop platform was broken into several pieces when i wanted to use it weeks ago.

    Very slick and sexy

    I spend a lot of hours on my macbook pro because I study at uni, and I needed something cheap but looked pleasing on my desk, so I went for the ghost stand. SO GLAD I did! It looks so good on my desk, and its at just the right for using keys and mouse. I love it and recommend for those who spend long hours writing assignments !

    It breaks

    This breaks. Really.
    The first minute I received the package and opened it, I was really happy.
    Pure design. Such build. All beauty.

    The second minute I tried assembling the product, I was devastated.
    It just cracked and broke. I was shocked.
    I am reaching the hotline now, but I had to write this review as I am so furious at this product.

    I would NEVER RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE EVER PERIOD
