    I can see why, looks pretty good. Would go well with the iMac i guess. Might purchase this.

    Book arc works for us. We never use native screen or keyboard when at home.

    I have a Rain Mstand for my 15" rMBP. I like it a lot, able to get my laptop in the perfect viewing height that I don't need an external monitor anymore.

    The only complaint I have is the hole for cable management is a little awkward. The ports on the laptop are far enough away that there really isn't anything to be gained by using it. Pretty minor complaint though.

    I have the rain stand and I utilize the stand for the 15" MacBook retina display and the Thunderbolt Display. It provides dual screen capabilities in its current configuration which works well for me.

    Peace and blessings,

    That's kinda waste considering Retina display.

    Sounds good. I'll only have the power supply cable running through the hole and for the most part I don't have the charger cable plugged In so It's all good.

    Retina display is very nice in the field for initial culling of photos. But back home we have a 27" ATD that give us the huge real-estate needed for editing photos. No laptop display tops a good calibrated 27" display for precise editing work.

    Also the rMBP gives us a SSD for large fast storage without a spinnng disk to fail. For us the rMBP is the perfect laptop for field photography trips. We just don't need the internal screen or keyboard when we are back home.

    I use the Griffin Elevator. Simple, elegant, good airflow and also portable (it comes apart into 2 L-pieces and an acrylic bar).

    Incidentally - there's a couple of negative reviews on that site that say that laptops slide off*. All I can say is that I've got 2 myself, half-a-dozen colleagues use them with everything from an Air to a 17" MBP. I've never experienced the 'sliding off' issue or felt the need to attach the two plastic clips supplied to prevent that. Not that I'd want to use any stand of this kind on a wobbly desk or where there was a serious chance of tripping over a lead.

    * Assuming these people aren't hallucinating or trolling I suspect that there may be some environmental conditions, such as bright sunlight or over-zealous air conditioning, that leeches the plasticising agents out of whatever the "rubber" cushions are made of. This could also explain the people who go through Magsafes and iPod cables.
