    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.

    Yeah it's not slippy

    • Written by from Aberdeen

    My first 5 minutes I thought this was rubbish too - way too slippy! Went onto the twelvesouth website and yeah - I had it upside down :-). Idiot. Once ummm corrected it was great - great stand. The V is what your laptop should be resting on ooops!

    Great

    • Written by from York

    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.

    Excellent Stand, Would Recommend

    • Written by from Saint Amant

    I recently purchased this stand and I see no issues, (as some have NEGATIVELY remarked) I quite like the stand, compared to my last, the grip is perfectly fine(: .... To those who made remarks to the grip, there are no issues from what I've seen! Be sure to check to see if the grips are dirty as it could lower the amount of grip. And BTW if there was an issue with grip, purchase a Speck case and it will grip quite well. Have a nice day people of the internet. :D


    P.S. I Have noticed that it is SLIGHTLY wobbly, not too bad, I can "STAND" it.... XD

    Great

    • Written by from Silt

    The stand is well made and sturdy. It looks very professional sitting on the desk. The height adjusting mechanism works great and makes it a cinch to adjust and lock in. The design makes it easy to slide a keyboard underneath the laptop when not in use.

    The laptop sits very securely and will not slide off. Even deliberately pushing my 15" retina macbook pro, it does not move.

    The laptop runs slightly cooler than if it is sitting flat on a desk, which is a huge plus.

    I would recommend using this stand with an external mouse and keyboard.

    I also own another direct competitor to this stand that is cheaper, but this stand is much better in terms of design, adjustability and professional look.

    great stand for viewing purposes

    • Written by from Middlesbrough

    This stand is absolutely great, dont get disheartened by the other reviews as this stand is mainly for viewing purposes, so if your going to buy this stand and type on your macbook frequently i would maybe recommend another bit more secure stand such as maybe the rain stand. if you are going to be using a external mouse and keyboard, then personally i feel this does a great job and looks quite aesthetically pleasing.

    Well designed MacBook stand that does what it says on the tin!

    • Written by from Skegness

    A well designed piece of kit that has made my Mac Book Pro even more usable at a desk.
    The only criticism that I can give, it that the stand does wobble a little. But it is sturdy enough to safely support my MacBook 15 inch.
    The stand grips my Mac Book well, holds it in place, and has lots of different height options - making it very usable.

    Solid Stand, Looks Great

    • Written by from Cave Creek

    I purchased this to use with a late 2013 MacBook Pro Retina. After reading all of the negative reviews I was a little uncertain about what kind of product I would find when I opened the box. Having an Apple Store nearby I figured I could always return it if I was unhappy. I have to say I was quite surprised at just how solid and well made this stand is, exceeding my highest expectations. Fit and finish are first rate and the cantilevered V arms that support the computer are much thicker and more rigid than I imagined, and in hindsight, commensurate with the price. The vertical adjustment is smooth and well made.

    Though I use an external keyboard, typing on the built in keyboard while the computer is on the stand isn't a problem at all. The MBP is rock solid with no slipping and only the tiniest bit of downward deflection if you press firmly on it. The foot matches my TBD perfectly with the exception that it has the Twelve South logo on it. The stand can be moved around on the desk fairly easily but I would not say overly so by any means. It stays put unless you apply sufficient force. Before opening the box I felt the price was a bit steep but went for it because I wanted the adjustability. But it does in fact feel like a $70 stand and after using it I have no issue with the price. In my opinion the overall rating is wholly undeserved. Well made, high quality stand.

    Brilliant, just what I needed

    • Written by from London

    I bought this yesterday, I have a Speck SmartShell Satin case and it works perfectly (it might even help) If I try and pull my laptop forward it brings the stand with it! I have a wireless mouse and just got a wireless keyboard too in a bid to improve my sitting position, so I don't need to touch it, save to change cables occasionally and it already feels so much better this way, I don't know how I went for so long without having a stand for my laptop and another keyboard. Incidentally I can still type on it using the stand. Anyway, one of my favourite things, apart from its brilliant quality/looks is the flat base that runs more seemlessly with my desk, i can slide books and note books underneath and actually I've more useable deskspace this way, really good if your referencing big books or making drawings or things. It seemed expensive but for me I feel its money well spent.

    Great Stand!

    • Written by from Pleasant View

    I have had my stand for less than a month and so far, it has lived up to my expectations. When I was reading other reviews, the comments stated that the computer slides off. That is not true at all. I saw a youtube video that had a review on this stand and the guy holds the stand in one hand and puts a MBP on it (while hold the stand) and then opens the laptop while on the stand...the laptop did not slip at all. It sounds crazy, but that really proved to me that it does not slide around. Another review stated that the stand moves around on the desk to easily. Well, the stand is actually designed to move around the desk easily, so if you are looking for something that is NOT going to move, then you may need to keep looking.

    Personally, I like the ability of adjusting the height of the computer. Not all stands have this feature. Having this added flexibility also me to adjust it to whatever height I need it to be. Where as other stands have a fixed height which is not dynamic enough for me. The stand is VERY well made. The angle that the computer sits at is nice (not too steep). I bought the stand so that my computer can get more air underneath it for cooling. Since the purchase and the use of the stand, the computer runs extremely quiet and does not get a hot as it use to. I am a software developer so I work pretty long hours (12-14hrs is my typical day). With that being said, I am always on the computer...so having it run cooler is optimal for me.

    The packaging is first class...sure, we end up paying a little more for the product, but the last thing that you want to have is a brand new aluminum stand all scratched up because it wasn't packaged properly.

    Thanks for making a quality product.

    Your Using It Up Side Down! Derrrrrr!

    • Written by from Brisbane

    I bought this stand today from apple and I am more than happy with what was given to me. To be honest, I didnt expect this stand to be very good because of all the neggative reviews but realised that these people are so stupid. This stand could not get much better than it already is because it has everything. Very nice stand and dont listen to all the neggative reviews because they dont have their heads screwed on straight.

    Great Product

    I agree it is a bit pricey but worth it for the solid feel and good looks.

    Only problem I had was my wife stealing it so I am buying a second one.

    Works great...no more neck pain!

    • Written by from APO

    This stand works exactly as it says it does. I'm not sure what the deal is with a couple of other reviews -- it kind of sounds like they were maybe using the product upside down (?), but it's physically impossible for me to get my MacBook Air to slide, at all, using this stand. It stays put. I don't type on it -- you're not supposed to, according to the product info -- I use it when I come home from the road and want to keep using my MBA with a wireless keyboard and mouse. But my neck isn't bothering me anymore when I spend hours at my MBA, and that's saying a lot. I like that it's adjustable so my husband can fix it to his right height, too (though I'm not so great at sharing my MBA). :>) Totally worth it. Best stand I've seen, happy I bought it!
