Did you know you can keep using your MacBook (opens in new tab) while the display is closed? Hooking it up to an external monitor, along with a keyboard and mouse, allows it to keep running in "closed-clamshell mode" as Apple calls it. The Twelve South BookArc (opens in new tab) was designed to make this mode more feasible by placing your MacBook vertically in a space-saving stand to give you more room to work, and today Amazon is offering the BookArc in your choice of Space Gray or Silver at a discounted price of $39.99. That matches the lowest it's ever reached there and saves you $10 off its regular cost.
The BookArc not only makes your desk look tidier but it can help protect your computer from spills and other messes, too. The stand features an integrated cable catch design that helps to keep cables from falling behind your desk when you disconnect them, while its modern, aluminum design helps to blend in and improve airflow to your MacBook. It was designed for specific models of Apple's MacBook, so you'll want to review the list on its product page at Amazon to make sure yours will fit properly.
You can save $10 on Twelve South's Curve stand for MacBook (opens in new tab) right now by clipping the coupon on its product page, which is a better pick for those who don't have an external monitor available to use alongside the BookArc.
Even more Twelve South accessories are on sale (opens in new tab) currently as part of its 76-hour 'Tent Sale'.
