AViiQ Portable Quick Stand
Proving that the foldable design of Apple’s Smart Cover for the iPad 2 made a splash outside of the tablet market, AViiQ has introduced the Portable Quick Stand ($40). What starts as a flat slab folds up into a triangular stand for your MacBook, bringing it up to a 12 degree angle that helps with typing. When you’re done, just fold it back up and it’s ready to travel.
What’s really great about the design is just how portable it is. At less than 1/4-inch thick, it’ll fit right next to your MacBook in most bags. And since it is only five and a half ounces, you won’t even notice that it is there when carrying everything around. Portable Quick Stand is designed specifically for the 13-, 15-, and 17-inch MacBooks, but we won’t rat you out if you decide to you use it with your 11-inch MacBook Air. AViiQ offers the stand in black, grey, green, blue, and magenta. Notably, it’s magnet-free, which means you needn’t worry about its impact on your computer’s hard drive.
Updated: Here are a few additional shots of the Portable Quick Stand, showing how it folds flat, opens to form a triangular stand, and rests safely using its rubber padding under a MacBook (here, the Air).
