    Old stock, not compatible with MBP with touchbar

    The listing states this is compatible with all MacBooks this is not true, the version sold by Apple is not compatible with the latest 2016 MacBook Pros. I ordered one on 03/03/2017 and it came with inserts A, B, and C. However Insert D is required for the 2016 MacBook Pro's. The Twelve South website states that the latest model comes with Insert D so the one Apple are selling is old stock.

    Great stand! Good quality

    Was dubious after reading the other reviews here!
    Fits my Macbook Pro Retina 15 like a glove! Very happy with this, looks fab too!

    Not as good as the old BookArc Stand

    I have the old BookArc stand for my MBA, but needed a new one for my Pro. Clearly manufacturing standards have gone down at Twelve South since I bought the first one - it's half the weight, poorly finished (the inside isn't properly sanded down) and now has a cheap chrome band around the outside, making it look like it came from Argos.

    If I hadn't bought this from the Apple Store directly, I would have assumed this was a cheap Chinese fake.
    Get an older version of the stand if you can track one down, far superior.

    Glad I bought the older one for the 15" MBP(R)

    I bought my MBP(R) 15" in October 2015 and bought this item for it. I love it. It is very sturdy and oozes quality despite its "Made in China" badge.

    However, I have just purchased this item again for my wife's new MBP(R) 13" and it appears they have made it considerably smaller and lighter in order to make it suitable for the entire range, Air, MB and MBP(R). Resultantly, I wouldn't recommend this stand for the MBP(R) 15", but it is just about OK for my wife's MBP(R) 13".

    I would thoroughly recommend it for the rest of the range, but the considerable difference in size should have been reflected in the price, considering the substantial amount of aluminium saved.
