Great validation on the Speed Boosting effects of the BookArc. You can try the same test too. If you are currently using a MacBook connected to an external monitor in dual-screen mode – just close it. Run your MacBook closed while connected to your external. Now run a graphics intensive app like Photoshop, Lightroom, etc. Is it faster? Snappier? Wired thought it was. Now you only have one problem. How can you stand up your closed MacBook clean and out of the way on your desk?… Hmm.
