Twelve South BookArc Pro Vertical Desktop Stand

Twelve South BookArc Pro Vertical Desktop Stand

Product Information

  • Overview

    Twelve South's BookArc Pro is a simple, elegant stand that literally turns your MacBook Pro into a mini tower while creating a less cluttered workspace. Slide your MacBook Pro or MacBook Pro with Retina display into BookArc Pro and park it at the back of your desk to free up space, or next to your external monitor and you’ll have a clean, modern Mac desktop.

    Create a less-cluttered workspace

    With a footprint of just 10 by 4 inches, BookArc Pro takes up a fraction of the space your MacBook Pro uses laying flat. Soft, silicone footpads keep it stable and your desk free of surface marks or scratches.

    Fits your Mac like a glove

    Two different-sized scratch-free, silicone cushions provide a perfect fit for your Mac while it's in BookArc Pro. They gently grip your MacBook Pro or MacBook Pro with Retina display and are super easy to install and remove.

    Enhance performance

    You can actually boost the performance of your MacBook or MacBook Pro by running it closed in the BookArc. How? When you close your MacBook, your system automatically dedicates 100% of its video memory to the external display rather than splitting it with the built-in display. Depending on your MacBook model, you can see snappier graphics and faster screen refreshes, especially when working in graphic-intensive applications like Aperture and Photoshop. BookArc didn't create the feature, but it can teach your MacBook the trick.

Jan 13). I have a MacBook Air and the BookArc is great, i usually position my Arc behind my monitor so it free's up space on my desk when im writing, wireframing or doing other tasks that require more space! The BookArc feels sturdy and secure, i've bashed my MacBook a few times when leaning over my monitor to grab cables and the Arc just grips my MacBook Air nice and tight. There's a gap for the cables which is useful for preventing the cables fall down the back of the desk when i'm not using the arc. All in all it was one of my favourite, most convenient to-have products that i purchased last year! If you're even debating buying this but are reluctant to spend the dosh then dont be. It's awesome!

    Absolutely excellent product. This stand is rock solid, has a beautifully weighty feel and has an extremely snug fit with my MacBo Absolutely excellent product. This stand is rock solid, has a beautifully weighty feel and has an extremely snug fit with my MacBook Pro 17" (Unibody, late 2011). There is no tilt to this product at all when it is upright in the stand which is a great bonus. I had a Speck case fitted to my MacBook Pro, but as expected this had to be removed in order for the laptop to fit into the stand, which to be honest is no issue as I use it as a full time desktop anyway and as the unibody is exposed in its 'naked' form to the open air, cooling is slightly aided, which I have actually noticed (I use a temperature monitor, and the difference is between 7 to 10 degrees Celsius cooler when in the Bookarc as appose to it being lying flat on the desk with the speck case on).

    Overall a definite 5/5 for this product; Beautiful packaging, excellent build quality and beautifully simplistic functionality. Highly recommended! Next day delivery from Apple was also a lovely bonus. :)
