    I am trying to buy a notebook stand for MBA.

    I was thinking either the mStand(Rain Design) or Elevator(Griffin Tech),

    and have some questions for those who already have Mstand & MBA.

    Because MBA doesn't tilt back as much as MB or MBP,

    Does it cause any viewing angle problems when using it on mStand ?

    I bought an mStand to use with my MacBook Pro, and it works fine viewing-angle wise with the MacBook Air as well. There is one problem though - the rubber bumper pads on the front don't come down far enough since the Air's so thin and there's metal-on-metal contact between the front of the Air and the stand. I've gotten a couple of small scratches on the computer, so I don't use it anymore. They'll probably fix it at some point in the future, but for now I'll look for another solution.

    Thanks!

    Can you take a picture of the MBA on the stand itself?

    Can you remove the pads and stick them a little lower or rotate them 90 degrees and put them back on?

    On mine the adhesive is really hard and the rubber started ripping when I tried pulling it off. Maybe I can find some additional padding material to use for a while...

    you can buy stuff like that at a hardware store and just stick them lower down.
