    I like the mStand, it's so sexy but seriously, this is a preference thing. There is no "best" stand as it's just an opinion. Get the one you like

    heat

    M stand looks good...(£40) seems alright price compared to the others.

    Im worried about the heat dissipation from below. Will it keep Macbook pro as low temperature as possible?

    Keeping on the sofa, lap most laptops heat up, most likely this stand will prevent this from happening right?

    It's aluminum which acts as a heatsink

    I think most people will recommend the mStand, as it's very sleek and efficient.

    Personally, a stand is a stand for me, and I didn't want to spend that much on it so I got the Griffin Elevator, which you can grab new off ebay for $20, half the price of the mStand. It has an open bottom so it will dissipate heat from your MBP just fine. It also doesn't look that bad, just not as attractive as the mStand.

    If you have the money and care about looks, definetly go for the mStand. But if you just want functionality and a good value, the elevator's your best bet.

    Another nice stand is the xtand pro. It's similar to the mstand but has a lot more open space beneath the mbp.

    I have the Griffin Stand and I think it works pretty well, I would recommend it. I purchased mine off of Amazon.
