Charleston, SC, November 1, 2012 – Twelve South is proud to announce HiRise for MacBook, a height-adjustable stand that lets users turn their laptops into comfortable desktops. This stylish, brushed metal stand elevates MacBook a few inches off a desk—or up to half a foot—to accommodate MacBooks and users of all sizes. Silicone-lined, V-shaped arms securely grip the bottom of MacBook to hold it in place. Compatible with all MacBook Pro and Air models, HiRise for MacBook is available now at Apple Store and Twelve South for $69.99. More info and images can be found here.
This stand does what others cannot do. It allows you to dial in the perfect height for your MacBook setup. Whether it's matching your MacBook Pro to an external monitor or elevating your Air to eye-level, this customized elevation adjustment is only available when your Macbook is on a HiRise. HiRise is compatible with all current MacBooks including the latest MacBook Pro with 13-inch Retina display (pictured right).
Crafted from brushed metal, HiRise has a spring-loaded post that is used to easily adjust the height of the stand. You can set your laptop low to the desk to focus on your MacBook screen or raise the height to align your MacBook with your preferred external monitor. The V-shaped arms of HiRise are lined with soft, textured silicone that securely grips the bottom of your MacBook.
“Of course your MacBook stand should be adjustable!" said Andrew Green, Creative Director of Twelve South. "When Apple laptop stands first hit the market, there was only one Apple notebook. Today there are 6 different MacBooks in 3 different screen sizes. It's critical to be able to adjust the height of your MacBook to your perfect height. One size does not fit all. That's why HiRise leaves all other stands... standing still.”
Beyond its stylish looks, using HiRise has additional benefits for users and their Macs. Elevating your MacBook provides a more ergonomic, back-friendly workstation. The V-shaped arms of the stand also allow maximum airflow around MacBook, which helps to keep the laptop cooler during use. HiRise for MacBook is available directly from Twelve South and at Apple Store for $69.95, and exclusively at Apple Store Europe now for £49.95/69,95 €. To experience the benefits of HiRise yourself, order yours today at Apple Store or Twelve South.
