TwelveSouth HiRise for Macbook
Twelve South has done it again. Once again they have announced another useful product for an Apple Device, and this time it is the MacBook that is the target. Let me introduce you to the Twelve South HiRise. Like the other HiRises that Twelve South has released before, this product is designed to lift your device above the table in order to give you a bit more space.
In keeping with the standard Apple Design, the HiRise is made out of aluminium. The base takes the form of a foot which sits upon your desktop, extending from this is an adjustable riser with a V-Shape Pad on the top. This is where your beautiful MacBook sits. Of course, it is fully kitted with a non-slip material in order to stop your MacBook slipping off.
Not only does it look absolutely stunning, but it also fits all of the Apple MacBooks, whether you have the 11” MacBook Air or the larger 15” models. If you own this device you will be able to adjust the riser up to six inches in height. This means that if you are using two monitors your MacBook screen will be in line with the bottom of an external monitor. It can be easily paired with your keyboard and mouse to give you the full computing experience. It isn’t recommended that you use the MacBook keyboard whilst using the Twelve South Hirise as it is incredibly uncomfortable and it make the device seem a bit unstable.
The stem of the Twelve South Highrise for Macbook is spring loaded which means that it is easy to adjust to the height that you want. The maximum height for the hirise is 6” whilst the minimum height is 2”. This should be enough to fulfil almost everybody’s comfort needs. Underneath the Highrise (on the feet) you have pads which stop the Hirise scratching the surface of your table when you move it, particularly ideal if you are going to be using this contraption a lot.
Like all Twelve South Products this is incredibly solid, your MacBook certainly won’t be going anywhere when it is perched on top of this beauty. Couple that with the fact that it looks beautiful and you have a pretty good product in the palm of your hand. The Twelve South Highrise for the Macbook is ready to go as soon as you take it out the box, something which cannot be said about similar products out there on the market which take a lot of fiddling about with to get them working perfectly.
For those that are looking to use their MacBook as their primary work machine this is the very thing that they need. It is simple to use and gives you a bit of extra storage space on your desk, which is always useful. Keep an eye out for this if you are interested in it.
