    Have you checked your local Apple site? Do you have access to Amazon or any other online sellers?

    That seems very elevated. Personally I like these by BlueLounge. Relatively inexpensive, very portable, three different slant options, and decent ventilation below your laptop.

    These stands are used to elevate the laptop to a certain height where it is more comfortable to use them. These are ergonomic stands, the feet you mention are only meant to provide better ventilation to the machine. Different beasts.

    The Belkin one looks like the Griffin one with the same problem: the notebook has the ability to slide off the stand. The mStand does not have that problem. Too bad the Belkin site does not say how how the stand will elevate the notebook or what material it is made of.

    I have the Rain mStand 360 and absolutely love it - matches the design aesthetics of the Mac and the swivel feature is quite useful.

    I'd recommend maybe trying to find it on Amazon or somewhere like that.

    Otherwise, the one in the OP doesn't look too bad.

    I don't understand the airflow selling point (I do, its for people who buy other laptops, but for a stand labelled as specifically being meant for a macbook this is just pointless to showcase), MacBooks don't have fans on the bottom of the case at all...

    I also use the MStand but since it's not available in Australia, have you given a thought about the Xtand Pro from Just Mobile?

    You can buy directly from them. I purchased the Mtable from them and it's very solid stuff so I'm pretty sure the Xtand is the same.

    A bit pricey though...

    Why is it a problem that Apple doesn't sell them?

    I still use an old Griffin iCurve. My MacBook Air rarely feels hot when I grab it at the end of the day.
