If the free space on your desk is shrinking faster than the free space on your laptop’s hard drive, the AluBase can help. It’s a stand that holds your closed MacBook vertically, letting you store it with a minimal footprint or connect it to an external display for the world’s slimmest desktop machine.
Weighing just over a pound, the AluBase is a single piece of aluminum that includes two removable white plastic cradles that accommodate a MacBook Air, a 13- or 15-inch MacBook Pro, or a MacBook Pro with Retina display. The cradles snap firmly into the AluBase, secured by two screws in the bottom, which is padded to keep it from sliding around. We’d like the AluBase more if the cradles were made of a similarly soft, grippy material for an extra measure of stability, but a MacBook’s weight is enough to keep it in place, and the stand’s minimal design ensures access to all ports.
The bottom line. Sleek and simple, the AluBase is an easy way to maximize tabletop real estate, and is especially useful if you regularly run your MacBook connected to a display.
