    What are the popular laptop stands nowadays?

    Preferably I'd like to get something like the Balmuda Floater where it's more of a stand that holds your laptop closed rather than something like the mStand where the laptop screen is meant to be kept open. I'm still open to mStand-like designs though.

    Bonus points for options that aren't as expensive as the Balmuda.

    Thanks in advance dudes.

    No bonus points for me. I have the Balmuda (Christmas present . . . not sure I'd have spent the money on my own) and have used it for a couple of years, with cabled KB, external monitor, etc.

    The only problem I have is that with the MBP closed and vertical, Airport doesn't work very well at my location. This isn't to say that it won't work at yours, obviously. For me it's unimportant because making a wired connection is easy, and the MBP tends to stay in the Balmuda for days at a time, sometimes weeks.

    It's true that it looks extremely cool, but it's also true that on a real working desk, that coolness tends to disappear behind papers, books, and the like.
