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.
Remember Lloyd Dobler’s classic line, “I gave her my heart, and she gave me a pen”? Poor Lloyd. Maybe if Diane Court’s lame parting gift was a pen with integrated iPad stylus, some of that heartbreak would have been ameliorated. But they got back together by the end of the movie, so I guess it’s OK.
No one needs a stylus, at least according to Apple. But any artist using an iPad as a sketching tool will tell you that a stylus will take your art from finger painting to, well, actual painting. After all, Michelangelo didn’t do many hand turkeys, and he certainly didn’t draw with his finger.

Just Mobile’s Cooling Bar addresses two of the MacBook Pro’s problem
areas—its tendency to get very hot and the less-than-ideal ergonomics
of its built-in keyboard. A hefty metal rod with a flat edge on the
bottom and nonslip rings on both sides, the Cooling Bar rests under the
back edge of your MacBook on a flat work surface.
For portability, the MacBook is king. But unfortunately, our kitchen
tables, desks, and the myriad other places we use our ’Books are often
not ergonomically sound. And watching a movie on a laptop at
table-height leaves much to be desired. Just Mobile’s Xtand Pro aims to
solve both of these problems.
