I use my MacBook Pro with its lid closed so often, I almost forget it has its own screen and keyboard. But Cooler Master’s L-Stand is the first stand I’ve tried that isn’t open on the top. The thin aluminum frame is handsome, but since it’s closed, you have to thread your MacBook in through the side.
The promise of a laptop is to let you work anywhere. But their dirty secret is that the "comfort" of being able to answer email from your favorite coffee shop often isn't that comfortable at all. If you've ever tried to type a long missive on a totally flat keyboard, bending your wrists weirdly to do so, or suffered a sore neck from titling your craning down to focus on the screen, you know what we're talking about.
Aviiq makes some well-constructed and handsome full-size laptop stands, but the new Portable Quick Stand is designed to go wherever the spirit takes you and your 'Book.
More precious than practical, laptop stands once seemed like an affectation to me. Then I started using a MacBook Pro as my daily workhorse, and the questionable ergonomics of working from a laptop started taking their toll. But I was hesitant to invest in a stand. Most are bulky and not terribly portable, leaving me torn betweeen traveling light and killing my wrists or lugging around a bulky piece of extra gear that nuked my MacBook’s portability. Then I stumbled upon Aviiq’s Portable Laptop Stand, which both saves my wrists and is light and compact enough that I don’t have any excuses for leaving it behind.
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.
