    Mine's not wobbly...

    • Written by from Washington

    My HiRise Stand for MacBook arrived today and I have to say I'm delighted with it. It seems very well built and sturdy and everything appears to be even. My only criticism is that I had assumed that it would be possible to adjust the level of tilt, but it isn't. Apart from that, I'm very pleased.

    As to the previous comments posted, I wonder whether one was just a bad example - it would be interesting to know if the buyer's second purchase was the same. As to the other, yes, the packaging oozes class and expense and I'm sure that does add to the price, but since when has that put off an Apple purchaser? Unpackaging an Apple product is one of those little joys that makes Apple what it is. I'm delighted that Twelve South thought enough about their customers that they would try to emulate that experience also. Good for them.

    Finally on the price, yes it is a bit costly, but I was prepared to pay the extra in order to have the adjustable stand. As it turns out, I have already adjusted the stand once because I decided I didn't actually need it quite the way up to the top.

    Works as intended as long as you know what to expect...

    • Written by from Forest Hills

    I use this stand with my late 2013 15" MacBook Pro. The most important thing to realize is that this stand was intended for use with an external keyboard and mouse/trackpad. This is stated on the Twelve South website and the product documentation. I have not had any issue with the MacBook sliding off at all. I've had the stand for three weeks and have checked multiple times to see if the MacBook has slipped any and it has not. Perhaps people that are having this issue are typing directly on the MacBook keyboard or maybe they have a skin or shell on it that reduces the coefficient of friction between the stand and the MacBook. If used as intended it works fine.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Pretty solid product, not sure why so many negative reviews

    • Written by from Bolivar

    After much debate and comparison shopping, I decided to take a chance on this stand despite so many negative reviews. I can honestly say,I don't know why they exist other than maybe people were somehow using the product wrong. My 15 inch macbook pro sits on the stand and does not slide off.

    It is a little pricey but I supposed you're paying for the adjustability and aesthetics. It also could be less wobbly, I guess, if the part the machine sits on was "U" shaped instead of "V". Despite this, I still fear my machine is going to fall and I haven't had it slide off as others have reported.
