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. See More
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. See More
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. See More
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. See More
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. See More
The Pwr+ can be adjusted to a number of different heights and settings so to suit the context in which you're working. It can rotate 360 degrees and lock in place at a number of different angles. Adjustment is carried out by simply pressing the silver angle buttons found at each of the joints to unlock and adjust as you please. See More
What sets this laptop stand apart from others is its means of keeping your machine cool: it helps prevent over-heating thanks to powerful but silent cooling fans that are built into its tray. The fans can be powered by connecting them to your laptop via a USB port. See More
The JAS Pro is compatible with a range of machines varying from small to relatively large in size. It'll also easily support devices either in clamshell mode (where the lid is closed and the external monitor is attached), or in dual screen mode (where the laptop screen has been raised straight up). Aesthetically-speaking, however, the JAS Pro is particularly suited to the MacBook and iPad. See More
This laptop stand is one of the optimal solutions in terms of office ergonomics. It raises your machine to 5.5 inches, which matches that of external monitors making it a perfect height for eye-level viewing. This ultimately helps to reduce neck and shoulder strain. Furthermore, when combined with an external keyboard, the stand facilitates sitting at least an arm's length from the screen, a key feature of safe and comfortable computing. See More
This stand is suitable for pretty much all laptops and netbooks that range from 7 to 17 inches in size. It can even hold bigger machines of 19-20 inches thanks to its strong arms and rubber grips. It particularly complements Apple products, simply on account of its design and brushed aluminum finish. 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
