Pro Sleek but perfectly stable
The Roost Laptop Stand is a sturdy, well-balanced construction, despite being rather slim in design. Made from carbon fiber and high impact plastic, as well as ceramic paint and metal fasteners, it's at once lightweight and beating-proof. It's capable of holding almost all laptop models and their varying weights, even 15-inch laptops that weigh over 5 lbs. The stand also comprises rubber insets and laptop grips that minimize vibration and ensure your machine stays in place.
Pro Easily transportable
This laptop stand is a mere 0.38 lbs in weight and so less than half the weight of a can of beans. It's also fully collapsible and, when collapsed, it's approximately the size of two large Snickers bars end to end. Together with its lightweight design, these factors make it the perfect solution for those who have to commute or bring their work with them when on the go.
Pro Can raise laptops a bit higher than most other stands
The Roost Laptop Stand’s height can be adjusted to offer eye-level viewing, making for greater comfort when working and reducing slouched posture. The stand can be raised up to 12 inches, which is higher than most other laptop stands.
Con Cumbersome height adjustment
It can be somewhat difficult to adjust the Roost’s height. To lower the stand, you have to press the white latches behind each pillar with your index fingers and then gently press down until the stand drops one or two notches. Raising the stand’s height level is equally as cumbersome and requires use of both hands, not to mention some practice.
Con Designed with the MacBook in mind
The Roost is most suited to the Macbook Pro and Macbook Air, which both have a unique hinge design that the Roost was built to take advantage of. While this is good news for Apple users, it means that other laptop models are less compatible with the stand.
