    I want to get a laptop stand for my Macbook Pro. Does anyone reccomend any? Not too pricey either.

    I saw the icurve but would the MBP fit on it? Not too big?

    No idea, but I would be surprised if the MBP wouldn't sit on the iCurve.

    I second this. Excellent product and, FWIW, fits the 15" perfectly.

    Depends on what you want to do with the stand/laptop. I need the MBP raised to a 'desktop' height to sit alongside the 23" ACD, for which the iCurve is fine. It supports my 17" MBP OK.

    I essentially want to use the MBP as a desktop computer and I need it to stand a bit higher up so I dont have to look down at the screen

    I would not recommend podium pad, i used it and i did not like it at all. I do however recommend iCurve, i use it a lot when i have my laptop connected to an external monitor.

    problem with the iCurve is you then need an external mouse and keyboard to hook up to your MBP.

    the podium pad raises it up, and you don't have to connect external devices either. also works fine on your lap as well if you wanted.

    The iCurve is only good if you have an external keyboard and external mouse to use it with it. I would highly recommend that you buy a mouse and keyboard if you dont have one but it seem you already do have them.

    Ok I guess icurve would suit me then since my KB and mouse are external

    since you already have them, and if you wantsomething higher-up and more at eye-level for when using at a desk, then yes the iCurve would work well for you.

    if you just want it slightly higher, and want it raised off of your lap when using it that way as well. then i would say the podium pad.

    the reason i didn't get the iCurve was because its only for using stationary.

    Another Vote for icurve

    I have been very satisfied with the icurve as a stationary support for my PB. It gets the screen up where I want it and I store the BT keyboard & mouse underneath when I'm through. I might add, if it makes a difference, that the whole works looks all of a piece. More than one person has wondered aloud if that's a new kind of computer and what kind is it? (Yes, most were familiar with Macs (Apples)).

    iLap & iLevel

    I've used neither of these but I was googling around for MBP stands today and ran across them:

    They look nice, though more expensive than previously mentioned solutions.
