Overall, I'm disappointed. It's probably still the best looking MacBook stand on the market, but it's disappointing to see Twelve South decide to go with a lighter material. I can't understand that move. Doesn't everyone want the stand holding their $3k laptop to be hefty and secure? Surely, Twelve South could have afforded more/heavier material at that price point.
I might keep mine, but if I do, it's out of pure laziness and because I still love the design and need a stand. I would never recommend it to anyone, though, which is really unfortunate.
I decided to get rid of my iMac and make my laptop into a desktop by hooking it to a dock and then a large 54" LCD 4k television.
I needed something to hold the MacBook Pro in place while plugged into the dock.
Now, I have bought cheaper stands for my laptop. In fact, Really NICE stands for half the price of what Twelve South is selling theirs for, and just as efficient.
In short, I splurged and bought this product because of the form factor. I like the curved aspect of this product. For that, you are paying twice as much as you could be paying for something just as good...but....straight.
The stand comes with two additional rubber inserts pending on which MacBook you own. Surprisingly, Twelve South got it all wrong. They recommended a larger insert for the 2017 model I described above. However, the insert that was already in place (the default insert) did a much better job of holding my laptop in place with no tilting to the side.
This is a quality product, no doubt, though I understand that this new generation of the BookArc is not as good (quality wise) as the previous generation. I am guessing this is lighter, and yes, as a result, it does tend to pick itself off the table when you take your laptop out of it. Not a big deal as I have noticed that happening with other stands I own as well. The better the fit around your laptop, the more the stand is going to continue to hug your device when you lift it out.
If you want a really good stand for half the price the Vogek Ucradle can't be beaten. However, if like me, you are committed to the curved form factor of the Twelve South BookArc, then be prepared to pay twice as much than you really should.
The BookArc stand is great for saving space and allowing me to work from just one large display. I used to like having multiple screens, but after using the 27” iMac, I’ve loved having just one large screen to work from and keep tidy instead of multiple screens to have all over the place.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
Not only does it save space, but it looks great and keeps my MacBook Pro (TouchBar) cooled down since it isn’t sitting on top of anything. I often forget that I’m even working from my laptop since I place my laptop away from my main workspace and screen/display in front of me.
DOES IT WORK AS IT SHOULD?
It works exactly like it should keeping my MacBook Pro out of the way and I appreciate the fact that they give different inserts that I can easily replace if I wanted to change and use my MacBook Air instead of my Pro.
The cord management storage space underneath isn’t all that useful for me as I manage my cords a different way, but I can see it being helpful if you’re connecting a ton of peripheral devices to the ports of your MacBook Pro.
IS THERE ANYTHING I DISLIKE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT?
The high price seems unnecessary for such a simple device, but it does look good and feels very sturdy and not cheaply made. Even though it does seem expensive for what it does, it's useful enough that I bought two of these: one for my home office and one for my work space. Nevertheless, it probably could be at least $10 cheaper.
IS THERE A BETTER PRODUCT?
I converted to this product after using the Rain Design mStand for years. This product is better if you only want/need to use one display at a time and want to save some space.
