    Great Stand!

    • Written by from Rancho Santa Margarita

    This stand is sturdy and help circulate heat from my new MacBook Pro (15 in). I usually setup my new MacBook Pro on this stand along with wireless keyboard and mouse, just like having a mini desktop. My family use this stand a lot.

    great, solid and sexy

    • Written by from MORNINGSIDE

    I continually find myself crouching over my laptop like some old man, I bought this stand not just because it matches Apples designs so perfectly but importantly to get some elevation for my laptop and correct my lazy posture. I've had it two weeks and it's easily the best accessory I have ever bought. My laptop feels like it's floating in front of my eyes and there is valuable space under it to keep an external drive or keyboard. It is a lot more solid than I had anticipated - boy do I love this stand. My laptop feels like a new machine and I find it easier to work on. No regrets and the design quality is of a very high standard.

    Elegant product & my neck feels better

    • Written by from San Diego

    There are a lot of solutions out there to raise up your laptop for ergonomic use but let's face it, a lot of them are just ugly. I love the design of this one, it's unobtrusive and it looks like it came with my MacBook Pro. My bluetooth keyboard tucks underneath nicely for storage when not in use. It is well worth the price - I read enough reviews about cheaper versions falling apart or breaking to know this was the right one. Most importantly, my neck and back are no longer strained. The only drawback is that it's not easily portable - but it seems with other collapsable stands, those moving parts are what break. All in all, I love this product and am considering buying a second one for work.

    Great design...few flaws

    • Written by from Burlington

    Purchased this about a year ago...

    Pros:

    * sturdy/rock solid - your MacBook isn't going to move
    * As the stand is designed to have your macbook angled towards you the viewing angle is comfortable.
    * Flawless design when sitting next to any iMac/Cinema Display
    * Rubber sections on the stand that make sure you don't damage your Macbook.

    Cons:

    * It's not light so taking it anywhere is awkward

    Overall this is a well thought out stand with attention to detail.

    Gorgeous, Well-Made, and a great choice!

    • Written by from Astoria

    Just got this stand today for my brand new MacBook Pro. I was hesitant because I could not find one on display in any Apple Store, but I liked the look of it and bought it anyway. And I am glad to say, it was a great choice. This is a really nice product. The craftsmanship is top-notch and it lives up to Apple's stunning unibody design. The height is just right and the no-slip pads and ledge along the front provide that critical sense of security. In fact, the design is so well-thought-out that the two no-slip pads along that front edge align perfectly with the sides of the thumb scoop on the front of the notebook. Quite nice.

    I am very happy with this stand, and you will be too.

    Perfect

    • Written by from Menasha

    A simple design, yet one of the greatest things you will ever use
    on a daily basis. A must buy if you spend a lot of time using
    your MacBook or even to just check emails. I have the 15" MacBook Pro
    & it works perfect even though it is "just a stand". I use the wireless
    Apple mouse along with the wireless Apple keyboard (completly bypass the MacBook's Trackpad & keyboard). I get the benefit of a desktop setup along with the ease of mobility.

    high quality - beautiful and durable

    • Written by from Whitethorn

    This stand is a single piece of aluminum with pads on it to ensure the laptop stays in place. It raises my screen 7 inches (the height of the back of the stand). Coupled with the wireless keyboard and wireless mouse, I've found a great and beautiful ergonomic solution.

    Great Stand

    • Written by from Ft Lauderdale

    To everyone that has given this stand a bad review because it "shakes when you type" This stand is designed to be used with an external keyboard and mouse. It is not designed for you to be using the on-board keyboard/mouse. Do a little more research about laptop stands before making your purchase and then writing a negative review about something that wasn't deigned to do what you thought it did because you don't understand the purpose of a laptop stand.

    exactly what I was looking for

    • Written by from Santa Clara

    For me the stand is what I wanted. No active cooling (fans). For me, I want to have some additional cooling, but not the noise that ultimately comes with another fan spinning on my desk. The stand is nice and solid. A good tilt to help with cooling. The final piece being the aesthetic fitting into the "apple" style.

    Pros ---
    - brushed aluminum
    - very solid construction
    - quality plastics and rubber components
    - provides good tilt to macbook for cooling
    - good macbook screen viewing height
    - no active cooling

    Cons ---
    - no active cooling
    - expensive for what you are getting

    Very good.

    • Written by from Simi Valley

    This stand is by far one of the best things I have purchased. Combined with a external display side by side with your macbook, i can use both displays side by side and be much more productive. Definitely worth it.

    highly recommended

    • Written by from Suwanee

    I never considered of getting this, then I accidentally got it as a gift.
    I think it is highly practical especially if you spend plenty of time on your desk because this will rise your mac closer to the eye level, which made my neck and shoulder and the eye all comfortable.
    Appearance is awesome especially exterior integrity along with your aluminum mac will make your desk beautiful and overall desk environment will be great.
    Even though price is quite steep, I think it's worth buying it.

    Great Product!

    • Written by from Minneapolis

    This is the best stand I have found. It's sturdy and has a hole for cable management. The best part is it has a lip to hold the laptop in place. Many other stands do not have this feature. The product was so well received that it's now a standard at our company.

    I have owned the Rain Design mStand for all of 5 hours now and I already think that it is the most worthwhile purchase I have ever made for my Macbook! It brings my computer to the perfect height for ease of viewing and typing. Very impressed with this simple, functional product!

    Solid

    • Written by from Aquasco

    I was looking for a solid elegant stand for my 15in Mac Book Pro. This stand is what I was looking for. This stand is well built. I expected something that looked good but did not function. This stand is in no way flimsy at all. I was taken aback by the weight of this product. It is not light and you don’t have to worry about it falling over with your Mac Book on it. This stand is worth the money for sure.

    Rain Design mStand for MBP 17

    • Written by from Spring Hill

    I should have gotten this platform long time ago. What was I thinking trying all kinds of stuff. Perfect for my MBP "17 that brought the screen to eye level. Now I am sitting with good posture and my back and neck does not hurt like it used to be. Perfect complement to my 24 inch wide screen. Working on Final Cut Pro, CS5 and Xcode is so much better!!! Kudos

    Great height

    • Written by from Glenside

    This works very well for me. Really glad I bought it. It brings my laptop up to eye-level. Considering tapering down the front edge of the front of the stand. This way you can sort of push your keyboard under when not using.

    Fantastic.

    • Written by from Petawawa

    I purchased this stand during the Black Friday sale in 2011, and my 13" MBP has rarely been off of it since. It raises the screen to a perfect height on my table, and I'm still able to use the keyboard for typing, because it angles the keyboard down. Also, since it's made out of a single piece of aluminum, it doesn't bounce when you type on it.

    If you need variable height or convenience for travel, this isn't the stand for you. But if your stand is staying in one location most of the time, it's definitely worth the price.
