I have a MacBook Mid 2009 and am looking for a stand that will hold it vertically so that I can use it was a desktop computer. When at home I have it connected to an external display with the laptop display off but it takes up quite a bit of room and doesn't look too good either.
So could anyone recommend any stands?
I've seen the BookArc and I remember seeing one (can't remember it's name) that had the power lead, display lead and things connected to it so you just sat your laptop into it and everything plugged in nicely.

I think what you're looking for is the Henge Dock (http://www.hengedocks.com/index.html). They're currently taking pre-orders, but based on the fact that their stands for the unibody Macs run only $60, I would guess that a stand for the old Macbooks would be around the same price.

The other option would be the BookEndz (http://www.BookEndzDocks.com/Docking_Stations-Docking_Station_for_13_MacBook_White.html) docking station. It's considerably more expensive, and it doesn't keep your computer vertical, but it still is pretty nice.

I've never used either of these, let alone any docking station, so I can't offer any personal advice. But from what I've seen, I would most definitely recommend purchasing a Henge Dock. It seems to be the cheapest, keeps stuff securely out of the way, and looks the best. Hope that's what you're looking for!
