Twelve South 12-1505 overview

  • 1Description

Using three interchangeable inserts, the silver BookArc for MacBook from Twelve South is compatible with the 11 and 13" MacBook Air, the 12" MacBook, the 13 and 15" MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3 (2016-present), and the 13 and 15" MacBook Pro with Retina display (2012-2015). Please note that MacBook Pro systems with the optical drive are not supported.

This stand will allow you to use your MacBook while positioned vertically, thus freeing up space on your desk. Once your MacBook is inserted vertically into the stand, you'll be able to operate it in closed-clamshell mode and connect an external display and a full-sized keyboard. Closed-clamshell mode also dedicates all of the system's video memory to the external display. The BookArc's cable-catch feature also helps to prevent any USB, display, and power cables from falling on the floor. The BookArc for MacBook can help speed up your workflow, clean up your workspace, and boost your productivity. It is protected by a limited 1-year warranty.

General Features

Docking Station
The BookArc allows you to run a full desktop setup with your MacBook. Using closed-clamshell mode, you can add a large external monitor, extended keyboard, and mouse for a more comfortable work station. Enjoy a bright 27" display for photo editing, gain a dedicated number keypad, and reclaim vital desk real estate with your MacBook upright and tucked out of the way in the BookArc.
Using Two Screens? Try One
Do you use a dual-screen MacBook setup? Close your MacBook and try working on a single monitor. This type of setup can help increase focus, minimize workspace clutter, and even speed up display performance by dedicating 100% of the video memory to a single display.
One Stand for MacBooks
The all-aluminum design of the BookArc cradles your MacBook in a soft interchangable silicone insert that is crafted to fit your notebook. Three included inserts ensure a perfect fit for the 12" MacBook (Insert C), MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3/USB Type-C (Insert D), or MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with Retina Display (Insert B).

    BookArc for MacBook (Silver) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant--Even the packaging I'm using the stand with 11 MacBook Air. I first saw this on display at Apple retail. No need for a stand at that time but I remembered how nice it was. It arrived today. It's just as beautiful and useful as I remembered. If you liked Steve's Apple this is for you.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT COMPATIBLE WITH� the 2012-2015 rMBP as described in spec This is a fairly poorly made product.� It doesn't fit the 2015 rMBP as described because the silicone mount isn't connected to the aluminum and gets completely disconnected from the frame as you attempt to insert the computer.� One could force it to fit if you fold the silicone back up onto the computer after it slipped off the aluminum base, but it takes several attempts.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mediocre laptop stand for the money I purchased this item to save desk-space for my late 2016 MacBook Pro. The first surprise was how small this thing is -- it is merely a thin piece of aluminum that has been molded into a curved shape. I installed the silicone insert that was included for my specific MacBook model and decided to try it out. I was expecting a snugger fit. The insert actually had quite a bit of wiggle room and my laptop slid in very easily. Unfortunately, this made my laptop lean at an angle rather than stand perfectly vertical. When setting my MacBook in with a little less caution, I noticed the the stand wobbled side to side, probably due to the laptop's preference to "lean" and the relatively narrow width of the stand. Overall, I think there are better vertical MacBook stands on Amazon that fulfill this purpose (saving space while looking attractive) for a fraction of the price. One that I found by Uppercase ($25) was designed specifically for the 2016 MacBook, and it occupies half the space while also providing more support to eliminate wobble.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, sturdy, effective This product is simple, effective, sturdy and does exactly what it is intended to do. No frills, exactly what I needed. Frees up desk space when I'm using my MacBook Pro 13 (mid 2017) with my 27 monitor, apple keyboard, and wireless mouse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from TwelveSouth has been known to make a great quality products. I've always being organized with my computer/electronic stuff and this product helped me to maintain that perfectly so I will have more room/space to put what I need on my table for more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality like an Apple product would have This MacBook stand is a quality product that matches the color and premium feel in a way that feels like Apple would have made it. Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just works as designed Simple, no fluff, just works as designed, heavy enough it doesn't slide around and stable enough to hold the laptop...
