    Returning, stand is wobbly.

    • Written by from Upper Tantallon

    It's a very eye pleasing stand, but the leg portion was very wobbly for me. It caused one side of the stand to drop about a 1/4 inch, my macbook always hand a terrible slant to it.

    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!

    Good and bad

    • Written by from Nottingham

    I have this stand and when I used it with my old Macbook Pro it kept sliding off. I had to put some non slip material-the sort you can buy for trays etc- under it to prevent the laptop landing on my desk every time I left it.
    I now have a new Macbook and it doesn't have the same problem.
    However, there is another problem. When I open the laptop I have to steady it or it tips over to the side of the V. I think parallel arms might be better but may not look so snazzy.

    Ha! I've been using it upside down for 6 months. Laughed so hard when I turned it over that I just bought 6 more for my team.

    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.

    Positive experience

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I don't usually write reviews, but I felt compelled to share my impression of this product because of all the negativity. I was initially very wary of purchasing because of the negative reviews, but after prolonged research for a laptop stand, this one was still the sleekest in design. I have no regrets buying this stand and have had absolutely no instances where my MBP has slid off of it. (Note: I own a 13" MBP.) I only hope people are removing their laptops before adjusting the height.

    The materials are quality and the build is solid. I usually work with a bluetooth keyboard and mouse, but have had no issues when typing on the MBP while it's on the stand. Only gripe is that I wish it could adjust a little higher.

    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.

    I bought this stand from the store cause it was the only one available. It worked just fine at first but now my laptop slides down and doesn't stay in place. I had this stand for almost 1.5 yrs and now its just sitting there as paper weight. Don't waste your money. Buy a different stand.

    Do Not Buy

    • Written by from New York

    This stand came defective out of the box. Adhesive strip on base of product was unglued from the base! Shoddy workmanship, even poorer quality control. Shameful that Apple sells this product.

    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.

    Best design !

    • Written by from Henrico

    There are lot of reviews which says it slips but I should say it does not. It fits perfectly and get the right grip for Macbook Pro. Cool design. The only thing I did not like is spring which is used for raising your Mac. I think spring quality is not that good but unless it lasts good it should not be a problem. I will recommend this product. Also the price is little high. Ideally its worth under $60.
    Anyways anyone looking for minimal and cool design this is the product. I will give four and half star.

    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.

    Waste of $70

    Absolutely unsteady and unbalanced, used it for a few months, given that I spent $70 on the stupid thing. Ultimately trashed it.

    Not Stable or Level

    • Written by from Atlanta

    I love the look of this stand, however my 15" MBP wobbles and is not level. The screen is tilts no matter how I adjust the piston or the position of my laptop. Pretty disappointed. Will return and try another brand.

    Purchase with caution

    • Written by from Melbourne

    I think that there needs to be some clarification on the term "wobbly". I set up my stand and placed my laptop on top as per the instructions. All I did was touch the power button lightly to turn it on and the laptop appeared to be a bit unstable. Reading reviews on this site, I presumed that it may be a defect of the product so I naturally contacted the supplier about the issue I was experiencing. After some "testing" by the supplier, I was told the following...

    "The wobble you described only occurs when pressing on one of the unsupported corners of the laptop. Resting a rectangular device on a triangular support stand may result in wobbling when pushing down on the unsupported corners. This does not constitute a defect."

    If you are just resting the laptop on the stand for the use of the extra height, then I would say save your money and get a couple of old Yellow Pages directories - they would do a better job. However if you plan to do any typing on the device while on the stand or anything of that nature then I would say that there are other products on the market that are far superior.

    Beautiful stand but a little to low

    • Written by from Arnhem

    This stand is beautiful. It fits every MacBook. But unfortunately it's a little too low.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars


    • 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
