Apple’s MacBook is an expensive commodity to say the least, and once we’ve forked out such hefty sums for the privilege of owning a shiny aluminum notebook, it stands to reason that we’ll want to spend a little extra on making the experience of using it as joyous as possible. Thus, MacBook peripherals and accessories are in high demand, and few companies offer the kind of range and quality as Twelve South. The makers of the BookBook for iPhone 5 and others are back with another great product – GhostStand for MacBook.
It’s often said that MacBook owners put their notebooks on a pedestal, and now, it would appear that they can. The GhostStand owes its name to the fact that when you mount your MacBook upon it, it sits rather inconspicuously beneath, seemingly invisible. Robust in its build thanks to its metal reinforcing rails, your MacBook is rested upon two silicone strips that provide a stable, comfortable position for enhanced general productivity.
While notebooks and laptops are ideal for their portability, they have, in many cases, replaced the traditional desktop, and while they can be used upon a desk without to much ado, mounting using a contraption like the GhostStand is increasingly becoming the more favorable option. Moreover, in connecting a separate keyboard and mouse, the experience is extremely similar to that of the desktop, and while cloud syncing now enables most devices to remain in harmony with one another, the GhostStand is far cheaper, and more practical, than running a desktop and MacBook combination
GhostStand, like most of Twelve South’s products, is both intuitive and aesthetically pleasing. The MacBook is a beautiful notebook, and any accessories made for it should follow suit. Thankfully, this is the case once more, and in the flow of productivity, it’s likely that you’ll scarcely notice it.
Compatible with all models of MacBook, (and, sshhh, probably most laptops in general, too) the GhostStand costs just $34.99 over at Twelve South’s website, and if you’re looking for an attractive, well-crafted mount for your beloved MacBook, then be sure to check it out!
And hey, if the GhostStand takes your fancy, the company also recently introduced the HiRise for iPhone 5 and iPad mini, allowing you to comfortably mount your Apple smartphone or tablet with relative ease.
Twelve South has informed us that, in Europe at least, the only physical outlet selling the GhostStand will be Apple Retail Stores.
