Twelve South

for MacBook

Turn your laptop into a desktop
Meet BookArc, the most popular vertical MacBook stand in the world. Don't lose precious desk space when using MacBook to run your desktop setup - simply slide your MacBook into the silicone slot, connect it to an external display, add a full-size keyboard and mouse to enjoy the comfort of a desktop setup. Ready to hit the road? Unplug MacBook and BookArc newly designed cable-catch feature keeps your cables from falling to the floor. Compatible with all current MacBooks, three interchangeable inserts ensure BookArc will be the perfect home for your current (and future) MacBook.
Dynamite docking station
BookArc allows you to run a full desktop setup with your MacBook. Did you know your MacBook was designed for this? Apple experts suggest utilizing a little-known feature called closed-clamshell mode. Add a large external monitor, extended keyboard, and mouse, for a more comfortable work station. Enjoy a bright 27-inch display for super-sized photo editing, gain a dedicated number keypad and reclaim vital desk real estate with your MacBook upright and tucked out of the way in BookArc.
When is one is better than two?
Use a dual-screen MacBook setup? Close your MacBook and try working on a single monitor. According to experts, this type of setup increases focus, minimizes workspace clutter and even speeds up display performance by dedicating 100% video memory to a single display. When using BookArc, you have a newfound laser focus on the work before you.
The original vertical MacBook stand, reimagined
Introduced in 2009, BookArc was Twelve South very first product. Since then, MacBooks have become radically thinner and more compact, so it was time for our iconic stand to evolve as well. Now milled from aluminum, BookArc features a bead-blasted finish. A polished chamfered edge pays homage to the new mirrored Apple logo featured on the new 12-inch MacBook. Finally, the entire stand has been scaled, refined and optimized to fit every current MacBook, from 11-inch Air to 15-inch Pro with Retina display, with one of the three included BookArc inserts.
