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

    BEST stand! functional and gorgeous!

    • Written by from NEW YORK

    this is a great stand for your macbook pro retina. i have owned it for about a year in my work office. i keep the mac open and closed, and it looks live its hovering over my desk. it opens up valuable real estate on my desk, and offers a space to slip items under the risen mac. never slips from the arms, as they have a secure rubber ribbed surface to keep it in place. i can open and close my mac, and it never wobbles. there are no unsightly "feet" holding it in place or anything to disturb the beauty and simplicity of the mac. i HIGHLY recommend it! MORE THAN FIVE STARS!

    It's a great stand, the grip is strong

    • Written by from RALEIGH

    Not sure what the 1 star reviews are even talking about. I picked up this stand at the Apple Store today and it is awesome. It grips my macbook very well. No complaints at all.

    Excellent Stand!

    • Written by from Leeds

    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.

    Perfect for a MacBook Pro 13 (Retina)

    • Written by from Eden Prairie

    I was unsure about this product based on all the negative reviews. But, since there was such polarizing reviews good and bad I figured I'd give it shot and make up my own mind. Glad I did, it works perfectly and as designed. The stand can be adjusted vertically based on your personal needs. I like the aluminum construction and Apple like design. The key to this product is to use it as a stand not as a docking station. Don't use or type on the MacBook when resting on the stand. The design keeps the bottom of the MacBook open and free for air movement to keep it cool. I would recommend this product if you use a second monitor, separate keyboard and mouse. Oh, the box the stand comes in is amazing too.

    I'm buying a second one for my other office.

    • Written by from Burnsville

    After 7 months of use at my home office I'm buying another one for my other office. I reviewed the other stands but this one helps preserve desk space by letting me slide papers under the elevated Mac. I am a tax accountant and often need to view a number of documents at one time. I don't know how the other people are using this stand but I have NEVER experienced ANY slippage or instability.

    Excellent product

    • Written by from chennai

    I purchased this product via apple online store. It promptly got delivered in a day's time. The aesthetics of the product is very impressive. Its sturdy and works like a charm. My macbook stays pretty safe without any slide. I am personally very much satisfied with this product and would highly recommend it.

    Don't Believe the Negative Reviews

    • Written by from Glasgow

    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.

    fantastic

    • Written by from Sheffield

    I bought it despite all the negative reviews, simply because I could not believe that original twelvesouth product would not be up to their usual high standards. I am certainly very happy that I've decided to purchase the stand.
    My mac air DOES NOT slip from it, DOES NOT wobble (even when I use the keyboard), and you have put considerable amount of force just to move (slide) the stand on the desk. IT IS stable and the stand looks great. Takes minimal amount of space on my desk and the adjustable height is very functional.
    Maybe some of the negative reviews were based on fake products that unfortunately are around (even on amazon), the one I've purchased from the apple store is a first class product and if you are like me and tend to work a lot on your laptop with a side screen attached, you will not be disappointed with the stand

    Do not believe the negatives... seriously

    • Written by from Sheffield

    Having read the first few reviews I almost didn't buy this stand. I did in the end because of one review that was positive and seriously questioned the comments about Mac Books sliding off at the slightest touch... really? Well all I can say is my experience is definitely not.

    The stand arrived well packed and already assembled in its box. The rubber surface on the arms that provides the, quite frankly, awesome grip to secure your device in place has a protective film over it which needs removing. Then you simply place your valuable piece of kit onto the arms and they will not let go in a month of Sundays.

    I even tried some gradually increasing lateral pressure to my MBP to test the stands stickiness and stability and all that happened after enough pressure was applied, was that the the stand (with the my MBP still firmly in place) moved on my desk surface. I should probably mention that my MBP also has a Speck shell case on it which probably provides less traction than the actual base of the Mac Book.

    In addition to its excellent gripping ability, the stand is well designed, is of a very high quality and does exactly what Twelve South say it does. I am very pleased with it and would strongly recommend this stand.

    Great stand!

    • Written by from Belleview

    I read the reviews and I was skeptical, but the design was what I was looking for. I took a chance and ordered it through Apple and I am very pleased! The stand is sturdy and it grips VERY well. I have had this product for a week and my macbook has yet to move one inch. The height is just what I needed so I don't have to bend my neck. The adjustable stand is extremely easy to adjust to the height I am looking for. Perhaps they have made some adjustments based on previous reviews and I ordered it at the right time.

    beautiful stand must buy

    • Written by from burbank

    when I read all bad reviews about it i thought maybe I am not going to buy it. but today i visited and apple store and bought it. let me tell that all the bad reviews that tell you that this stand will drop your computer i think they are using it wrong (up side down) those two arms is where your computer will go not the other way. i think if you read the instruction that came with the stand you will find out how to use it the right way.

    Great Stand for a MacBook Pro 15' Retina

    • Written by from Carpentersville

    I've had the stand for a few weeks and I love it. After reading some of the reviews I was concerned about the laptop slipping off the stand. So I bought the stand at the Apple Store knowing that if I had a problem I could return it to Apple.

    Well, let me say slippage is not a problem for the retina MacBook Pro 15. I'm not sure if Twelve South has modified the stand - by either reducing the slope on the top of the stand or using better rubber on the top of the stand that grips the laptop, but whatever they did, I have no problems with the laptop moving once it is placed on the stand. The height adjustment allows me to adjust the laptop to the height of my external monitor when its in use. Without the external monitor I raise my laptop so the screen is closer to eye level.

    The laptop gets removed from the stand almost daily. I use the Apple cordless keyboard and trackpad. Both work great with the stand.

    The only problem I had with the stand - and this is very minor - was the base of the stand had a mark on it. I assume it was made during the manufacturing process. Since this is an expensive stand, I replaced it with no problem at the Apple Store.

    All and all I can say this is a perfect stand for me.

    Gorgeous and useful MacBook stand

    • Written by from Bath

    I've been using this stand for over a year, and it has made a world of difference in my posture. I downsized to using just a MacBook (replacing my desktop), so this stand enables me to quickly set it up once I'm home. The build quality is high and the color/texture is spot-on with Apple's unibody machines. It's light, but super sturdy. I've bumped my machine a few times and it has yet to lose grip.

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

    • Written by from Sunninghill

    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 had this delivered today and despite some bad reviews I am very pleased with it. I am using a MacBook Air 15" and it is very sturdy and seems secure. Not sure what problems others have had but I have no worries about this. I would recommend, albeit a bit pricy but thats Apple! Sometimes you get what you pay pay....

    Clears desk and puts display at the perfect height

    • Written by from London

    This is a great sturdy stand with a minimal footprint, clearing up desk space and adjusting my screen height to the correct level so I'm no longer having to look down at my laptop. I've not experienced any issues with the grips (using my 15" rMPB), the laptop is held firmly in place; I can still press keys on my laptop whilst on the stand, open and close it, plug in USB devices and so on, with no concern about it slipping. Great product all round.

    It's rock solid and doesn't slide!

    • Written by from Woodbridge

    I've just bought this despite the worries about computers sliding off - my stand and the macbook on it is rock solid - I'm pulling the laptop towards me and the whole unit underneath it is stuck fast and moving across the table together - are you sure you haven't got it upside down? Seems well built as well.
