    Anyone here who uses a stand with their MB Air? I'm looking for a small, stylish stand that angles the Air up slightly towards the back. I am currently using a belkin cooling stand, leftover from my MB days.

    I just use my Rain Design mStand. It's not ideal for the thinner MBA, but it works.

    I had the mStand as well but as Knight mentions, it didn't suit the MacBook Air as good as it does with Apple's other MacBooks, so I let it go and just recently purchased the Griffin Elevator. I must say I really like this stand and its minimal approach matches the MBA aesthetics very well in my opinion.

    Also, since it has a smaller incline than the mStand, your able to tilt your Macbook's screen further back.

    Very nice and highly recommended.

    That looks nice and all, but it's slightly higher than I had in mind. Looking for something that maintains a height so you you can still type on the air, yet elevates it at a slight angle.

    Using xtand with air 11.6, and I am pleased with functionality and style. Will post a photo later on today, but have to mention that I had to add four 12 mm silicone pads to lift the air a bit. Xtand looks like it was built for 11.6 (when you add those pads yourself):cool:

    Actually, that is a real stand less the speakers.
    Expensive but stylish
