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 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.
