    Hmm, I personally think that you can still use the Elevator comfortably, as it's only 5 inches high. You could also connect a wireless keyboard + mouse if that would be more comfortable.

    But if you want to get a little stand while using the Macbook, I'd reccommend you getting some sort of Laptop Ramp, like the Standivarius Aero.

    Good luck in finding a decent stand!

    I have just purchased an apple wireless keyboard and magic mouse, I think I'm going to get the griffin and purchase a 23" apple display with some money I saved for an iPad 2 but never got due too the rumors of the 3 coming out in less than a year

    That will be a good setup.
    Yeah, I'm not the biggest iPad fan. Bought the original on launch day, returned in soon after.

    Check out the mStand. It's really beautiful and matches the Alum Macbook.

    I have just purchased an apple wireless keyboard and magic mouse,

    Yeah, I use a Apple wireless keyboard and the Magic Trackpad with my MBP and external. I don't bother with a stand at all.

    I also have the mStand and it's worked great for me. my mbp is at a comfortable viewing angle and I can use it with or without my wireless mouse and keyboard. plus it is very aesthetically pleasing :) I Highly Recommend it!

    ALSO, I tried the Griffin Elevator and ended up returning it the next day because my mbp was slipping off the stand when i tried to use it. just something to keep in mind.
