    I have a cMBP I would like to buy a vertical stand for. Something like the Cool Master ROC or the AluBase.


    Anyone have any experience with these or other stands, or other advice?

    Use a napkin holder, just google "napkin holder laptop/macbook" cheap solution and works fine:p

    That's pretty funny. I figured it might just be better to make it out of wood or something rather than spending money on a stand.

    I made a stand out of some scraps of teak I had. Very simple design. I would post a pix but it's at home and I'm not.

    I have been using the BookArc with my Macbook Air and I like it. They make a MBP model also.

    This is not a stand per say for the MBP which can be used separately, as it is only useful if you are planning to use a External Monitor along with it ! Right ?

    Correct, but since the OP mentioned the AluBase stand as one option he was considering, I assumed this is OP's setup.

    I have the Rain Design mStand, and I like it a lot:

    Works really well if you want to use your Macbook as a secondary display. More information on their stand here:

    Can anyone suggest a good seperate stand for the rMBP where I can use the rMBP individually on that stand I don't plant to use any external monitor along with it !

    I know about the MStand anything other than the MStand ?

    Out of the two, MStand and the Hi-Rise which one is better in terms of adequate height provided to alleviate the discomfort cause by Neck pain while working long on the Mac ?

    I understand TwelveSouth the makers of Hi-Rise have one more similar product like the Hi-Rise which is called

    "The Ghoststand"

    I wonder what is the real difference between the two and which one is more suited for giving a good height and positioning.
