    Awesome

    I've seen some reviews from people describing their laptops sliding off this stand... they are using it it upside down!! Just don't be daft and use it the right way up and you'll find that you've bought an excellent stand.

    Not worth the money—really unstable

    For something so expensive you'd expect it to be better made. The stand looks great and the packaging is cute but functionally it's next to useless.

    My 15" rMBP moves around on the stand and if you touch it it's super unstable and wobbly. If left for an extended period of time the mac will start to lean to one side.

    Not great

    Its ok, not really worth £50 it's a little unsteady and the bolt on the back to hold the hight keeps slipping.

    Ideal if you want to break your laptop - Read this before you buy

    I bought this stand thinking that I was buying a quality product from the apple website, but be warned this is an expensive piece of junk. Firstly the base of the stand has a cheap strip of slippery plastic, so if you or anyone else walks past and accidentally bumps into you laptop it will slide around as if it were on an ice rink.

    Secondly the arms have some very soft rubber if you have a heavy laptopn like my MacBook Retina 15" it will just slide off and fall to the ground when you are not there! Warning: do not leave your laptop unattended on this stand it will plumet to the ground!! I have had my £2000+ laptop fall on the ground countless times and dented! Thanks Twelve South, If you like your macbook please take my advice and leave this stand well alone.

    5 stars

    Works beautifully, tilt it correctly (big platform facing down) and nothing falls off. Very nice that you can in- and decrease the height.

    Good and bad

    I have this stand and when I used it with my old Macbook Pro it kept sliding off. I had to put some non slip material-the sort you can buy for trays etc- under it to prevent the laptop landing on my desk every time I left it.
    I now have a new Macbook and it doesn't have the same problem.
    However, there is another problem. When I open the laptop I have to steady it or it tips over to the side of the V. I think parallel arms might be better but may not look so snazzy.

    Excellent Stand!

    I am a bit surprised by some of the negative reviews for this stand. I've been using mine for about 6 months and its absolutely solid - no issues with my MacBook Pro 15" slipping at all. I did have an issue in the first week but that's only because I was being dim and had the stand upside down!! I had what I thought were the feet at the bottom - turned out that's what the laptop should have been on and the square bit was the base!!

    Anyway - this is a fabulous stand in my opinion - at least for the 15" MacBook Pro anyway.

    Don't Believe the Negative Reviews

    The item comes very well packaged, well in line with the Apple products themselves.
    It even supplies an instruction manual the implicitly states after MacBook is placed on the stand "now use an external mouse and keyboard".
    This is a STAND.
    It is NOT designed for use of the in-built keyboard / trackpad of the hardware whilst it is in use.

    Makes my MacBook look like it is floating, and even allows me to hide external drives / usb hubs now, below the raised MacBook and remain out of site.

    I couldn't recommend this enough. It is a quality product, with quality design, which is perfect for the job it was designed to do.

    Great stand. Providing you use it up the right way.

    I received this stand today. It's excellent.

    It's sturdy, looks great with my Macbook Pro 15" and has high build quality.

    I was put off by a few of the reviews on here, but after experiencing the stand first hand, I can assure you that your laptop will NOT slide off... providing you have the stand up the right way. The laptop is supposed to go on the V-shaped, rubber-gripped arms. Not on the flat metal square base with the silicon around the edge.
