    For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with ElevationLab to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win one of the company's new DraftTable accessories that's designed to work with the iPad Pro.

    Priced at $99.95, the DraftTable is meant to serve as a stable, sturdy stand to be used with the iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil for drawing, sketching, writing, game playing, movie watching, and more. It works with both the smaller 9.7-inch iPad Pro and the much larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro. While designed for the iPad Pro, it also works with older iPads in every size, down to the iPad mini.

    DraftTable positions the iPad Pro more ergonomically to meet each user's needs. Its spring-loaded hinge can be adjusted to several different angles, and as the name suggests, it's ideal for use with iPad Pro drawing apps like Astropad as a replacement for a Wacom tablet, and it pairs well with an iPad tethered to a Mac.

    DraftTable is made from a fiber reinforced polymer and laser cut steel for strength, and the iPad platform is constructed from a soft medical-grade silicone, so the iPad won't slip off the stand while in use.

    ElevationLab's DraftTable has been specifically created for stability, so it's not going to move around, shake, or fall when writing or drawing. Because it folds down into a thin form factor for storage purposes, the DraftTable can be taken anywhere.

    An included arm rest keeps the palm off of the iPad's screen when using it with the Apple Pencil, and it makes working for several hours at a time more comfortable, plus a silicone PencilStand gives you a place to keep your Apple Pencil so it never gets lost.

    We have three DraftTables to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winner and send the prize.

    Sweet. I just got a DraftTable and it is pretty damn nice to draw on. Especially with the wrist support pad it comes with.

    Not sure I understand -- the screen ends up elevated a good 4" higher than it normally would be. Even using an external keyboard that's ~2" tall, I still find that the screen of my 11" MBA is well above the keyboard. Or maybe I'm misunderstanding what you're saying.

    I think Apple should take a note from the surface and make a kickstand.

    Never mind drafting, that's a pretty nifty stand for regular usage of the iPadPro, especially the various angles. Pricey though. Maybe include the $99 Pen for somewhere in the $149-$169 range? Then they would of course exclude the potential buyers who already own the Pen.

    Yeah, the price is high, but honestly I've been trying to find something like this that worked with the 9.7" (there are a couple that work with the 12.9" but not the smaller one) because of how I use apps for referencing notes and taking them with a Pencil at my desk. But there's very few options. So sometimes, when nobody really competes with you, you can get away with going full premium and charging a bundle for it.

    The Ikea one is nice, but the adjustable angles is valuable to me.

    I wish awesome accessories like this would work with the smart keyboard attached. I mean I know that isn't the point of this product so I guess it would be easier to say, I wish apple made the smart keyboard more stable with more angles.

    This seems very useful, and not just for drawing. I really like it.

    Hah! You got that crazy keyboard that looks and feels like my grandfather's typewriter, but with a backlight. :D

    This piece of junk would be expensive if it cost $19.95.

    What's going on with that South America map, Kynmore? You planning some sort of takeover or something? Got operations going on down there?

    Setup looks quite diabolical...next Marvel villain in the making.

    We have some nice high-rez prints of the 2012 World Telecom maps, showing all the major data paths. I just happen to sit next to the Latina America and Asia Pac maps.
