Elago is perhaps best-known for its cables and other electronic accessories, but the company makes some impressive-looking metal stands, too. L3 Stand ($70) is an elegant one-piece aluminum riser for your MacBook, akin to earlier designs the company has released for the iPad and iPhone. L3 comes in Mac-matching silver or a nice dark gray, each ready to make your laptop more desk-friendly.
L3 is designed to raise a laptop up to eye level while placing the keyboard at a comfortable angle, using a lip at the bottom to prevent the machine from sliding off. It’s narrower than any Mac, but the metal is substantial enough to be stable. Two holes in the back offer cable management. Despite the $70 MSRP, both versions are actually sold directly by the company for less.
