    Hello Everyone,

    I was wondering if any of you have seen a stand for the macbook pros like the ones for the playstation 2 where it puts it up vertically.

    If not i thing somebody should make one as a desktop space saver and it would be just as good as the ones for the PS2 and look cool to

    That would be cool, however relatively unpractical for those who want to use dual screens.

    it would be nice to just disable the main screen, take it off, and shelve the macbook pro. then you can have a super thin mini, thats properly powered.

    although that would be pretty cool if you can do it. Come to think of it wouldn't be possible? If you have a mbp with a broken screen can't you just hook it up to an external lcd? Then you'd just have to carefully remove the lcd from the mbp. Hmm...

    Is there any harm in letting your macbook stand up like that with it powered on all the time?

    With this stand, the vents are blocked when the Macbook is in the pictured position :)apple: up).
    Also, operating the laptop in the closed position could be harmful for the lcd in the long term - with all that heat that it is not usually by. The Macbook also draws in cool air from the keyboard, so this method would also suffocate it in a way.

    well, whatever you do..don't buy this POS

    Maybe it works for the 13', but the 15' hangs off the back and as the pro has a lead backside, the nose tilts up and it trys to slide off the front if you put it at any angle. Plus its not tall enough by itself, so I had to place it on a stand..sheesh.
