    I've had my LapTuk for a couple of weeks now so I decided to post up some impressions.

    Basically I needed more space on my desk since I mainly use my MBP with an external monitor. I shopped around for laptop stands and this one seemed like the best product. I got it from OWC for $40.

    -My 15" MBP fits underneath perfectly. There is plenty of room to connect/disconnect cables.
    -The stand seems very sturdy. I have a 20" Cinema Display resting on top and there is no sagging. It could easily accomdate more weight.
    -The stand does not slide around on my desk thanks to the non-slip feet.

    -The color does not quite match the aluminum on my MBP or my Cinema Display. Not really a big deal but disappointing for the price I paid and for a company that is Mac oriented.
    -Seems a bit pricey for what it is but mac-specific accessories generally are.
    -Not really a fault of the product but the computer does run a little hotter due to the reduced air flow.

    Despite the small shortcomings I am very glad I made the purchase. My desk is much neater as a result and I have more space to work.

    That seems cool. I am thinking of doing the MBP/external display combo as my next Mac, esp. if they don't introduce a matte display option for the iMac (not holding my breath).

    Although, I suspect I'll greedily want all the screen real estate I can get, but this definitely looks like a good solution if space is an issue, or if I already have a good dual monitor setup. I dig it.

    So you don't worry about the additional heat or anything over the long term?

    With all due respect but what did you expect?

    I had a feeling that would be the case but I thought it was worth confirming...
