Twelve South HiRise stand/riser for MacBooks (Video)



By

The HiRise is a stand/riser for Apple's laptops and joins the company's HiRise for iMac. Essentially the stand appears to work for all MacBooks except the 17-inch MacBook Pro. So, that includes the 11", 13", and 15" MacBook Air, MacBook, and MacBook Pro. The stand raises the laptop up off the desk up to 6 inches with an adjustable pedestal. The spring-loaded design is an interesting approach where the tension of the spring pops the stand up and height can be set with a thumb screw.

The height can be adjusted for more comfortable reading or to better match an external display, such as Apple LED monitors. Also raising the laptop off of the desk allows for better airflow cooling and may help organize a desk for when an external keyboard or mouse. Twelve South recommends using such an external setup rather than directly typing on the keyboard.

The stand has good quality non-skid surface for the laptop. It's also an all metal design that matches the surface of the MacBooks and Apple's displays. On the bottom the HiRise has polymer skids which should help protect your desk surface and make for easy positioning. The skids resemble what Apple uses at the bottom of its iMac and is similar to skids on the bottom of mice.

The HiRise for MacBook is available now for a MSRP of $69.99
