With the BookArc from Twelve South, you can turn your laptop into a desktop computer. It has been designed and engineered to make it the ultimate stand for MacBook Pro and MacBook Pro with Retina display. Its soft silicone insert is molded to follow the gentle curves of MacBook Pro for a precise fit. This stand is compatible with the 13, 15 and 17-inch Unibody MBPs, and the MacBook Pro with Retina Display.
Compared to having your MacBook Pro lying flat on your desk, the BookArc takes up a fraction of the space. All MacBook Pros can be used in what is called ‘Clamshell Mode’ or ‘Closed-Clamshell Mode’ which allows you to use your MBP with the lid closed while it is connected to an external monitor. Twelve South also claim that in Clamshell Mode, your MacBook will dedicate 100% of its video memory to the external display rather than splitting it with the built-in laptop display.
The BookArc comes in packaging that resembles that of Apple’s, and the product’s appearance has the same brushed aluminum finish seen on many Apple products including the Apple Thunderbolt Display, Apple Wireless Keyboard and Apple Magic Trackpad. All in all, this makes owning a BookArc a very pleasant experience – and when on your desk, it will match with the rest of your equipment.
The BookArc itself is made from solid metal, with rubber feet on the bottom to give it grip. The sturdy construction, lovely packaging and great design make this is a very appealing product for any Mac user.
This product will give your desk a Zen-like appearance! You’ll save space, giving your desk a clean, less cluttered look. The soft silicone feet provide sturdy grip that won’t leave marks on your desk.
