The mStand has rubber pads on the bottom that help the stand stay in place and prevent scratching of the surface it's on. Rubber pads on top along with a lip in front help to secure the laptop in place on the stand. See More
The Rain Design mStand is just like your typical all-in-one desktop, making it a perfect solution for remaining fixed on your desk. For one, it raises your laptop 3 inches in the front and 6 inches at the back, mirroring the viewing heights of a standard desktop. It also comprises a tilt design that allows you to bring the screen closer if needs be. These features reduce strain, promote posture, and maximize your comfort and safety when working. Finally, the mStand offers space for an external keyboard and mouse, as well as a cable organizer hole that takes care of any dangling, messy cables. See More
Stood can be folded and taken anywhere by using the same rubber band that avoids the laptop to fall off due to accidental bumps. Simply unmount it and attach it to your laptop (or to your laptop sleeve). Got a Laptop sleeve? It's thin, so you probably can simply slide it in! See More
The entire unit is secured to the laptop using one rubber band. This can be seen as a pro or a con, and it should be noted that the rubber band is not required for Stood's functionality. The primary issue regarding the rubber band is its location, which is right between the most essential parts of the computer. The band's location increases the probability of it being snagged, especially for users wearing watches. Another issue with the band's location is that it spans an uneven area. The space between the trackpad and the keyboard has a divot, meaning that part of the rubber band will not be in contact with the device's surface. Lastly, if the band were to be moved in any direction, it would either be making contact with the track pad or the keyboard. There is absolutely no room to spare. While width may be essential for the band's strength, it could prove to be inconvenient for some users, depending on individual habits and preferences. See More
Users are uncomfortable with Stood's price because the materials (plywood and a rubber band) are extremely cheap and the product could be replicated for a fraction of the price. While Stood is cheap relative to many other stands made of carbon fiber, users' concerns seem to be founded in the fact that the cost of goods sold per item is minuscule in comparison to list price.

the Laptop Stand made of Wood can be moved around without having to detach the stand from the laptop. This is perfect for things like Skype calls, where the stand and laptop can be transported while keeping one hand free. Stood is simple, portable, and light. Accidental bump? Not a problem, the rubber band will keep your laptop where it should stay. See More
