Hi. I'm looking for a stand for my BlackBook. What to buy?
The Griffin Elevator is a nice option; looks great alongside Apple's hardware too:
I second the Elevator. Love the storage space underneath to tuck a keyboard and wires.
Whoa that Elevator thing is hella pricey. How is that worth 39 bucks?
I would check out ebay. Or make my own. I remember seeing a tutorial on how to make your own on Instructables.
It's not really. It's just the price of convenience. My MacBook's perched on top of two 12 DVD case stacks right now to better bring it to eye level.
Browse lifehacker.com for some "make your own" or otherwise cheaper options.
I have the Griffin Elevator and it works really nicely (as you'd expect), it also looks pretty good too. You could definately sort out a cheaper option, but if you do go for the Elevator, I can't see how it would let you down, and it's much more convenient than building your own version.
I use 3, strategically placed books as my stand. A poor college kid.
I absolutely LOVE the iCurve and wish they were still in production (never giving mine up!). I also have a Griffin Elevator that I care around in my laptop case (along with my HHKB Pro 2 and a Logitech Trackman Wheel).
I'm just a bit affraid that the mac could fall of.. I've read some review pointet that out as a risk..
Ever seen you mac slipping?
If price is an issue, then I'd check out Magasin chopping boards at IKEA (as I've recommended lots of times already).
We've used those for a while now, for our iBooks and my MacBook, and they're excellent for keeping the laptop and any soft surface you want to put it on very cool, since wood is a very poor heat conductor.
The larger of the pair are excellent for iBooks and MacBooks (and maybe you cen even fit a 15" MBP onto it, though I've not tried), and the smaller can be used as a mouse pad or even a chopping board...
I'm torn between iFold and iLevel - Elevator only raises the machine 5.5", and mStand 6" compared to iFold's 7.3" and iLevel's adjustable 5 to 7 inches.
Oh wait - iLevel costs £80, over twice iFold's amount... I think the decision just got made for me!
I've used a MacBook and a MBP on both my iCurve and my Elevator and have never had a problem with slippage.
Okay.. Well maybe they were just very unlucky...
Then I'll go for a used iCurve.. The mStand is really nice looking but WAY to expensive
I've been using an iCurve for 2 years and it only started to slip last week ... because the bottom of the Mac was covered in greasy fingerprints. Quick wipe of the Mac with a damp cloth and it's now fine.
Okay, thanks for all the replies!
All I want to know is what the hell are they doing with a Dell monitor?
I made one out of PVC for 4 dollars
rain design's M stand would look beautiful with any apple product.
Shame that tiny "cable management" offering won't accommodate a DVI cable...
Yeah, and the price! . Here in Denmark, it costs 105$!!!
