    Does anybody has a Twelve South BookArc for your mbp ? Do they work with a mpb that has a hard cover case like speck ?

    I use the BookArc with my Retina MBP and with no cover at all it fits in there very snug. I just took two business cards and was just barely able to slide one in each side, so anything thicker than that is not going to fit. Hope this helps.

    I guess mine won't fit with the hard case on. That's too bad it looked like a perfect solution to my space saving needs. I could take out the case but I think it's bit of a pain each time. I guess I'll look for more possible space saving options.

    I know it doesn't look as elegant, but I use a clear Ikea napkin holder that I got off of Amazon. It holds up my rMBP 15" real well, and seems pretty sturdy. Granted, it's plastic, but it still shows off the gorgeous body, and I believe it will have a smaller footprint than the bookarc.

    Actually, I think that looks pretty good. Can't beat the price either.

    My book ark came with a silicone piece for the MBP and the rMBP. When I was using my plastic cover on my rMBP I used the MBP one and it seemed to fit pretty well.

    Mm wonder if all purchase comes with adjustable silicone... I know rmbp is thinner than mbp.

    I Have the book Arc but actually ended up really liking the Belkin Zero/Loft stand.

    I use it with a mouse and keyboard as a stand alone stand OR when I'm connected via monitor, I use it in closed mode (I'm not a 2 monitor kinda guy)
