Sadly though it does not hold either my MacBook Ai My High Rise stand arrived today, and it is very well made, and looks great.
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. …

Just what I wanted
Saw the stand on display in Covent Garden and knew it was exactly what I needed. My main monitor is 30" but I like to keep my cha Saw the stand on display in Covent Garden and knew it was exactly what I needed. 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. …

Excellent build quality & looks
I picked up one of these in the Regent Street store for use at work with my Air and I'm pleased with it. The rubber non slip arms I picked up one of these in the Regent Street store for use at work with my Air and I'm pleased with it. The rubber non slip arms hold the laptop in place and the adjustable height is good, although a bit more height adjustment would have been better. If you're very tall, this might be an issue as it's just about okay for me at normal desk height and I'm 5ft 10".
Design wise, it looks great, however, as per usual, it's being obscured by a mass of cables...! …

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

MacBook Pro went crashing to the ground BY ITSELF
Never been happy with this stand and should have heeded the previous negative reviews...
Since purchasing I've found that my Ma Never been happy with this stand and should have heeded the previous negative reviews...
Since purchasing I've found that my MacBook Pro seems to gradually slide off to the bottom right without even touching it and so constantly having to slide it back up onto the stand every 30 mins. Perhaps it's just from the vibration of using my external keyboard and mouse but it's quite a design flaw that there aren't supports on the bottom end.
Once, I hadn't seen how far it had moved off the stand (paying more attention to my main monitor) and before I could catch it my MBP went crashing to the ground, thankfully with nothing broken.
It wobbles around like crazy if I try to use the MBP whilst on the stand and doesn't adjust to a very high position at all.
Will be returning as it's very poor value for money and does not do the job. …
