Twelve South BookArc

If you need a cozy place for a new MacBook Pro or Air, Twelve South does that for you. The BookArc stands of the company have the metal style that is similar to the technology they have made for their cradles. The heavy-gauge steel construction nestles a soft insert to keep scratches away while your machine is crammed into. In an effort to be able to tidy up that workspace, the BookArc has a cable management system to ensure that the screen, headphone and power cords lie in a pleasingly tidy order.

Main specifications: MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models, steel construction, built-in cable management system built, padded insert to hold tightly.
