Best stands for your MacBook

Why the mStand is the best

Sleek, modern feel + durable build + comfortable design = A champion MacBook stand.

The mStand is not only a versatile, well-made MacBook stand that'll take the heat off your lap and the kink out of your neck, but it's also an all-round customer favorite, garnishing over 2,000 reviews that put it at 5 stars on Amazon.

This is a fantastic option for any Mac laptop user. I work from home and revamped my MacBook Pro into what now feels like a desktop. I no longer have to hunch down to look at the screen-- giving me better posture and less back/neck stiffness. (Amazon user G. Fisher)

On top of that, the mStand looks like it's made by Apple, so if you like keeping your technology uniform and clean-looking, the mStand might be a great option to go for!

Interestingly enough, the packaging it came in even reminded me of how Apple would have packaged it. It's a wonderful product that fills an obvious need, and is one of those "why didn't I think of that" items. Simple design, beautiful, and very functional. (Amazon user Steve W.)

The price is also a great option if you're looking for a high-quality stand that won't break the bank wide open – you'll spend just under $45 if you pick up the Rain Design mStand.


Finding the most comfortable stand for you and your MacBook can be difficult, but there are dozens of high-quality options out there to pick and choose from that won't break the bank.

While the mStand is by far the sturdiest, best option (and did we mention that it comes with the option of a swivel base?) there are numerous stands in different designs that suit their own individual purpose for getting your work done efficiently, quickly, and, most importantl, comfortably.

  • Hi. I have used and loved the Rain Design stands for years, owning three at the high point (one at work, two at home), and agree that it is amazing. I now use the Roost stand at home and travel because it raises my MBP even higher than the Rain (but is adjustable), and is easily portable. YMMV.
  • For on-the-go, nothing beats the Roost Stand. Gotta have that bluetooth keyboard though, because the Roost Stand raises the whole laptop up to a better ergonomic height. We have a bookable walking desk at work, and I love using it for that. And for cafes. And so people aren't looking up my nose during video calls. It collapses down to a small size, perfect for on-the-go.
