The stand for tiny desks and big ideas!

Watch the Video >

Make room for a big monitor by holding your MacBook vertically, off of your desk, with BookArc. Set MacBook atop BookArc, plug in your favorite external monitor, keyboard & mouse and now you've turned your compact laptop into a comfortable desktop setup. Photo editing, spreadsheets and other projects are easier to see on a bright 24-inch (or bigger) screen while your MacBook runs the show behind the scenes. 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.

Is BookArc compatible with the new 15-inch MacBook Air?
Yes, just select BookArc for MacBook Air from the dropdown menu and Insert I, which adds compatibility for 15-inch MacBook Air, will be added to your cart for free!

With BookArc, even tiny desks fit a big monitor.

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.

Create a comfortable desktop setup.

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!

BookArc FAQs

Can I buy the BookArc inserts separately?
Are the available inserts compatible with all versions of BookArc?
The inserts are not compatible with the original form-factor of BookArc, BookArc for MacBook Air, or BookArc mod. Original BookArc and BookArc mod came with numbers on the inserts (some combination of 1-7). BookArc for MacBook Air came with a "1A" on the insert.
Ok, now why would I want to use my MacBook closed?
Many reasons, but basically it boils down to wanting a portable notebook on the road, and a comfortable desktop computer at home. Using your MacBook closed on a BookArc while connected to your favorite widescreen monitor, keyboard and mouse is truly the best of both worlds. Check out the video here.
What! I can use my MacBook closed? How do I do that?
Yes, you can. Connect a nice big external monitor, your favorite keyboard & mouse and you’ve essentially turned your MacBook into a space-saving micro tower. Apple calls it “Closed Clamshell Mode”. Read specific instructions directly from the Apple tech support site right here.
Is there a front & back to BookArc? If so, how do I install the insert in the stand?
Yes, there is a front and back to BookArc. To ensure the very best fit with your MacBook, follow the Guide below to install a BookArc Insert in the proper direction:

    Like it as much as my first one

    I like it. I have a small problem though. I thought I ordered it with the free insert for the 15” MacBook Air, but it arrived without that insert. Could you please send me one?
