BookArc Pro desktop stand for MacBook Pro - $49.99
The desktop computer is dead. Long live the desktop.
If you're like me you use a MacBook as your primary computer and connect it to a large monitor and keyboard when the need arises. A notebook computer is simply more versatile than a desktop which is why most people them as a desktop. If you're in this camp (and your desk looks anything like mine) you need all the space you can get. Enter the BookArc Pro desktop stand for MacBook Pro which essetially turns your notebook into a desktop by keeping it vertical and out of the way while running with the lid closed (a.k.a. "clamshell mode").
TwelveSouth engineered BookArc to fit the MacBook Pro perfectly and it even added subtle touches like integrated cable management to keep your desk from turning into a rat's nest. It includes silicone inserts for both the unibody and Retina MacBook Pro in the box. BookArc is also available for the MacBook Air ($39.99) and iPad ($29.99) and doubles as a great shelf stand to store your expensive Mac gear up and away -- which is amazing if you have little kids at home.
