    Sadly though it does not hold either my MacBook Air or MacBook Pro steady or securely enough. Both machines just rest on the support arms, but move about both front to back and side to side when touched, even lightly. This gives the impression that it is going to fall off.

    This may not be a problem if you intend to never touch the machine once it is one the stand, but if like me you will have to still use the keys from time to time this may not be the one for you.

    Sadly had to return the stand.

My main monitor is 30" but I like to keep my chat clients on the Macbook screen out of the way. Putting the Macbook on the desk next to large screen meant I had to keep looking down to see the screen. With this stand I can raise the Macbook up and position in right up against the edge of my monitor closer to being horizontally central. The base of the stand serves as a useful place to leave my iPhone charging hidden away under the Macbook. There is quite a bit of room underneath as the arms don't slant down too much like on other stands. It really makes everything look way neater and I can switch my focus between screens more quickly.

    Do not buy... well, do buy if you want a stand that your laptop will just slide off.

    Can't believe Apple stock this piece of a Do not buy... well, do buy if you want a stand that your laptop will just slide off.

    Can't believe Apple stock this piece of a expensive junk.

    The facts it's expensive. It looks like your Apple laptop i.e. it's made of the same looking metal (nice). Down side is that it looks great but performs terribly. You put you laptop on it and with the slightest (and I mean slightest) knock it well send you laptop hurtling to the floor or at least to your desk top. Why? because it has a smooth plastic edge as apposed to a rubber outer ring, it uses cheap plastic that offers no traction at all.

    Avoid like the plague... Shame on you Apple for stocking such rubbish.

    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.

    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 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.
