The Apple-only accessory maker, Twelve South, has come up with the sleekest and most Apple-esque stick-on stand for MacBooks designed with extreme portability and convenience in mind. While not the first stick-on kickstand accessory for MacBooks, the new BaseLift does feature a higher degree of elevated typing as well as a familiar Smart Cover-like functionality compared to a similar rival – the Bluelounge Kickflip stand. Twelve South's BaseLift is a portable folding stand and lap pad all in one single, svelte flat cover that sticks to the bottom of your MacBook.Read More
In the search for greater heights, Twelve South has released the first height-adjustable MacBook stand called the HiRise. Not to be confused with the company's $80 HiRise for iMacs and Apple Displays, the sturdy aluminum-made HiRise is beautifully designed to elevate and provide an adjustable platform for any MacBook to your ideal ergonomic viewing angle. The HiRise can also align the MacBook's screen with that of an external Apple Display for a perfectly matching dual-display setup environment.
Twelve South's MacBook HiRise features a spring-loaded piston that lets you easily adjust the height, non-slip arms that improve the airflow and can accommodate all MacBook sizes from an 11-inch MacBook Air to a 15-inch MacBook Pro. The HiRise height-adjustable stand for MacBooks is available now for $70.
Just Mobile has released two new practical MacBook stands made of course from solid machined aluminum and boast a Danish design. The stands look to be a take on Twelve South's iconic BookArc and BackPack 2 Mac accessories. The first is Just Mobile's AluBase, a $50 aluminum-made block which keeps an upright hold of any 11", 13" and 15" MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and Retina MacBook Pro thanks to its interchangeable rubber inserts that provide a snug and secure fit without scratching your device.
Just Mobile's $60 AluRack, is a two-piece hook-like mounting stand made from aluminum and plastic screw-in attachment that attaches onto any modern iMac, LED Cinema Display and ThunderBolt Display via the cable management hole found on the display's pedestal creating a solid shelf lined with soft plastic that lets you mount either an external hard drive or any 11", 13" and 15" MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and Retina MacBook Pro.
