The thick base holder allows notebook of all sizes to be supported but Macbook, Macbook Pro and other thick profile notebooks (eg low end notebooks of other brands) seems to be best suited for it.
Ultrabooks, Macbook Air, netbooks, slim profile notebooks and hybrid notebooks aren’t the best fit for it.
The build itself is superb. Move the stand around and you can feel the quality of the build material.
The product itself is solid and stable when placed in operating position.
While it works with slim profile devices, it doesn’t work well with it as the bottom placeholder blocks the palm placement, making it uncomfortable.
Once placed, the keyboard on the notebook is at approximately 35 – 45 degree angle, depending on how wide the stand is opened.
At such placement, the comfort of using the now tilted-high keyboard is entirely preferential. Personally I think it’s an angle that looks nice but impractical and tiring to use long term.
The product page mentioned iPad as part of the product suitable for it, from my experience – tablets are a horrible experience on it. Ipad for example, the base holder would be blocking an iPad’s home button when oriented vertically. Oriented horizontally, pressing the home button would most the device while the base holder itself blocks access to the screen.
The product retails at a whopping RM 199 – the build quality is good BUT keep in mind it’s only worth buying IF it helps the ergonomics. Sorry, I’ll spend my RM 200 elsewhere.
