    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.

    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.

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.

    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.

    I bought it despite all the negative reviews, simply because I could not believe that original twelvesouth product would not be up 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

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.
