While my MacBook Pro 17 is off most days, and I’m used to having desktop PC at home to get stuff done, I could definitely use a nice stand to prop up my laptop when I do use it. The Twelve South HiRise for MacBook is a sleek, polished stand that *ahem* stands out in the crowd.
The HiRise will work for MacBooks from 11″ to 15″, so it wouldn’t work for my larger laptop. The stand is adjustable, allowing you to raise or lower your MacBook’s keyboard and display to match the height of your eyes. You can adjust the stand from as low as 2 inches up to 6 inches.
If you’re using an external monitor, the HiRise helps you get the MacBook’s screen to the same level as the Thunderbird display, so you can use them side-by-side without constantly having to move your head up and down. Still, I prefer something that hides away the laptop completely to make room for the external monitor, but for a dual-display setup, it’s kind of cool.
The HiRise sells for $69.99(USD) directly from Twelve South and is available now.
