    It Does Stick! People are using it wrong!

    • Written by from Langley

    Great Product, everyone that says that it does not stick and that the macbook slides off is using the product upside down! The V shape part of the product is where the macbook sits on, and the base that sits on the desk is the rectangular part. Please consult the pictures on the box before using and criticizing.

    Personally, I love the product, it may not have the ability to change the tilt, but the height adjustments are great, the product is built strong and sturdy, and I love the design ascetics of the product!

    No more headaches!

    • Written by from Charlotte

    I noticed that I started getting really bad headaches that started at the base of my neck.....and miraculously, they would go away when I stepped away from my desk for an amount of time.

    This product completely resolved this issue, and so now...my headaches are only cause by my co-workers! No fixing that unfortunately.

    Buy it!

    Works great...no more neck pain!

    • Written by from APO

    This stand works exactly as it says it does. I'm not sure what the deal is with a couple of other reviews -- it kind of sounds like they were maybe using the product upside down (?), but it's physically impossible for me to get my MacBook Air to slide, at all, using this stand. It stays put. I don't type on it -- you're not supposed to, according to the product info -- I use it when I come home from the road and want to keep using my MBA with a wireless keyboard and mouse. But my neck isn't bothering me anymore when I spend hours at my MBA, and that's saying a lot. I like that it's adjustable so my husband can fix it to his right height, too (though I'm not so great at sharing my MBA). :>) Totally worth it. Best stand I've seen, happy I bought it!

    Adjustable Stand

    • Written by from FORT LAUDERDALE

    This is excellent, free's up space on my desk, allows proper ventilation. I also purchased a wireless keyboard and mouse. I absolutely love it. Never have to touch the keypad or mouse pad again.

    Scale 1- 10 , I give it 11

    Solid Stand, Looks Great

    • Written by from Cave Creek

    I purchased this to use with a late 2013 MacBook Pro Retina. After reading all of the negative reviews I was a little uncertain about what kind of product I would find when I opened the box. Having an Apple Store nearby I figured I could always return it if I was unhappy. I have to say I was quite surprised at just how solid and well made this stand is, exceeding my highest expectations. Fit and finish are first rate and the cantilevered V arms that support the computer are much thicker and more rigid than I imagined, and in hindsight, commensurate with the price. The vertical adjustment is smooth and well made.

    Though I use an external keyboard, typing on the built in keyboard while the computer is on the stand isn't a problem at all. The MBP is rock solid with no slipping and only the tiniest bit of downward deflection if you press firmly on it. The foot matches my TBD perfectly with the exception that it has the Twelve South logo on it. The stand can be moved around on the desk fairly easily but I would not say overly so by any means. It stays put unless you apply sufficient force. Before opening the box I felt the price was a bit steep but went for it because I wanted the adjustability. But it does in fact feel like a $70 stand and after using it I have no issue with the price. In my opinion the overall rating is wholly undeserved. Well made, high quality stand.

    Great Product

    • Written by from vernon

    I agree it is a bit pricey but worth it for the solid feel and good looks.

    Only problem I had was my wife stealing it so I am buying a second one.

    Great

    • Written by from Silt

    The stand is well made and sturdy. It looks very professional sitting on the desk. The height adjusting mechanism works great and makes it a cinch to adjust and lock in. The design makes it easy to slide a keyboard underneath the laptop when not in use.

    The laptop sits very securely and will not slide off. Even deliberately pushing my 15" retina macbook pro, it does not move.

    The laptop runs slightly cooler than if it is sitting flat on a desk, which is a huge plus.

    I would recommend using this stand with an external mouse and keyboard.

    I also own another direct competitor to this stand that is cheaper, but this stand is much better in terms of design, adjustability and professional look.

    Great Stand!

    • Written by from Pleasant View

    I have had my stand for less than a month and so far, it has lived up to my expectations. When I was reading other reviews, the comments stated that the computer slides off. That is not true at all. I saw a youtube video that had a review on this stand and the guy holds the stand in one hand and puts a MBP on it (while hold the stand) and then opens the laptop while on the stand...the laptop did not slip at all. It sounds crazy, but that really proved to me that it does not slide around. Another review stated that the stand moves around on the desk to easily. Well, the stand is actually designed to move around the desk easily, so if you are looking for something that is NOT going to move, then you may need to keep looking.

    Personally, I like the ability of adjusting the height of the computer. Not all stands have this feature. Having this added flexibility also me to adjust it to whatever height I need it to be. Where as other stands have a fixed height which is not dynamic enough for me. The stand is VERY well made. The angle that the computer sits at is nice (not too steep). I bought the stand so that my computer can get more air underneath it for cooling. Since the purchase and the use of the stand, the computer runs extremely quiet and does not get a hot as it use to. I am a software developer so I work pretty long hours (12-14hrs is my typical day). With that being said, I am always on the computer...so having it run cooler is optimal for me.

    The packaging is first class...sure, we end up paying a little more for the product, but the last thing that you want to have is a brand new aluminum stand all scratched up because it wasn't packaged properly.

    Thanks for making a quality product.

    Your Using It Up Side Down! Derrrrrr!

    • Written by from Brisbane

    I bought this stand today from apple and I am more than happy with what was given to me. To be honest, I didnt expect this stand to be very good because of all the neggative reviews but realised that these people are so stupid. This stand could not get much better than it already is because it has everything. Very nice stand and dont listen to all the neggative reviews because they dont have their heads screwed on straight.
