    Hi all,

    I use my macbook with an external monitor at home. When I visit my clients, I unplug the cable and travel with just the macbook. When I use the macbook at home, I have it sitting on a cheapo stand that tilts the laptop to improve ventilation at the bottom. I notice that the video adapter cable dangles on the side and this might be introducing some strain on the video connector.

    Is there a connector or jig that will reduce this strain? e.g. the cinematic screen uses a connector that combines video and power connection and this seems to be nice and solid. Any such third-party product exist? alternatively, has there been any 'lifehacker' type of solution for this?
    Thanks a bunch.

    Put a slice of cardboard under the laptop/connector, or make the cable more taught?

    I wouldn't buy something for this when a piece of duct tape or chunk of keyboard will work.
