Crafted from A-grade aluminum, the L-STAND is designed to embrace your MacBook with all the care possible. Thanks to the soft rubber lining in the L-shape it will keep your MacBook safe and secure. An anti-grip layer underneath keeps it steady. Since it is shaped like an ‘L’ there is a lot of open space which increases the airflow. An increased airflow lowers the temperature of your MacBook, which in case will increase its life expectation. Without the L-STAND you would place your MacBook on your desk and connect it to a (Thunderbolt) display and peripherals such as a mouse and keyboard. Putting your MacBook on your desk takes up a lot of space. With the L-STAND that inefficient workspace is history. You put your MacBook in the stand, which means your MacBook is in an upright position which clears up a lot of desk space. Finally you connect the cables from all the different peripherals and you have turned your MacBook into a desktop.
