    Doesn't function entirely as advertised

    • Written by from San Jose

    I received two inserts - one for Unibody MacBook Pro and one for 13" white MacBook Pro. Nothing for MacBook Pro with Retina display, but no loss as I don't have one.

    The unibody insert does not "fit like glove" and in fact, sitting horizontally, my unibody Pro leans sideways a bit. Further, cable management with my 15" Pro is worthless. It is not possible to place the MacBook Pro into the stand vertically as the arc blocks both the power connector and the Ethernet port. Plus, given the fit, this seems a bit high risk anyway. Horizontally, it works and does free desk space, but no cable management.

    Overall, a very average product.

    Great Design, but Flawed for New Retina MacBook Pros

    • Written by from Ottawa

    A great design for the the earlier unibody MacBook Pro, but the retrofit approach using a different rubberized gasket to hold a MBPr misses the mark. My MBPr fits in the BookArc Pro sloppily and tilts to one side.

    Twelve South needs to retool the design exclusively for the MBPr or successfully redesign the gasket. When this correction is successfully made it will be worthy of 5 stars, but not now.
