BookArc is the little MacBook stand that makes room for a big monitor. How? It holds MacBook vertically and off of your desk. Set your MacBook atop BookArc, plug in your favorite external monitor, keyboard & mouse. Now you have taken a compact laptop and turned it into a comfortable desktop setup for your home or office. Things like photo editing, spreadsheets and other projects are easier to see on a bright 24-inch (or bigger) screen. When it's time to go mobile or head out for a meeting, unplug your desktop connections and the BookArc Cable Catch will keep them in place for you.
Can my MacBook run while the screen is closed? Yes, it's a feature called Closed-Display Mode and great news, all MacBooks have it. Learn more here.

Did you know your MacBook was designed to run a full desktop setup? To turn your focus to a single massive screen like Apple’s XDR Pro Display, you can utilize a little-known feature called Closed-Display Mode. Enjoy a bright 32-inch display for super-sized photo editing, gain a dedicated number keypad using Apple’s Extended keyboard and reclaim vital desk real estate with your MacBook upright and tucked out of the way in BookArc.
Just look at how effectively BookArc maximizes desk space! Now you can park a big display on the smallest of desks working from home or the office. Resting upright on BookArc, your MacBook can even be tucked behind your monitor, increasing your focus while freeing up even more desk space.
It’s hard to beat the portability of a MacBook on an airplane, but you don’t sit in an airplane seat at home. Why wouldn’t you sit in front of a full-size keyboard, mouse and external monitor when you can? BookArc creates room for comfy desktop setups whether you’re in the corner of a small apartment, in your temporary work from home office or atop a small IKEA desk. With BookArc, even a wall shelf becomes a potential desktop!
One amazing feature of BookArc is that it’s designed to hold the MacBook you own now and the MacBook you buy tomorrow. How’s that possible? The silicone inserts that cushion and grip MacBook are easy to replace and update.
BookArc includes three different inserts to hold the most current MacBooks, with an update for the 16-inch MacBook Pro (M1, 2021) coming soon! As Apple introduces new MacBooks, we’ll continue to make new inserts to ensure BookArc stands the test of time. Already have a BookArc and looking for an updated insert? You can purchase the newest inserts here.
How does a MacBook work when it’s closed? It’s called Closed-Display Mode and this long-time feature on MacBooks was the inspiration for BookArc. Switching to Closed-Display Mode is super easy. But don’t take our word for it, here are Apple’s Closed-Display Mode instructions.
If you already use an external monitor as a dual-screen setup with your MacBook, BookArc gives you the option to switch to one display so you can laser focus on a single giant screen and gain back a ton of desk space.

Before getting the BookArc I was looking at a vertical docking stand from Brydge. But those are 3x the price. I’m very happy with the BookArc. It’s minimalist, small and holds my MacBook Pro securely.
The BookArc fits my 16" 2019 MacBook Pro perfectly. It's light enough to take anywhere but holds firm on my desktop. The space grey color matches my same color MacBook. The small notches on each end hold the USB-C/Thunderbolt cables when my MacBook is not docked. I like that BookArc comes with adapters to fit other MacBooks and that when I upgrade I can order another adapter.
BookArc works well securing the MacBook Air safely and maximizes desk space. Build quality is top notch and the product look great as well. Very happy with this purchase.
