Twelve South’s ParcSlope for MacBook ($50), named for both the Brooklyn neighborhood and as a Mac homage, is a desktop stand that angles a MacBook on a — you guessed it — slope. The titled aluminum workstation holds a MacBook at an 18-degree angle for an ergonomic typing angle and higher viewing angle. A gap in the back of ParcSlope acts as a cable management system.
We received the stand recently, and have included our own photos here.
Three ridges on the stand can hold an 11”, 13”, or 15” MacBook, but Twelve South also notes the stand “works great” with the 17” MacBook Pro. The 2 pound ParcSlope uses a silicone lip at the bottom of the stand to keep the MacBook in proper position, and four rubber feet keep the stand in place.
For some who feel they’re always hunching over when looking at their laptop, ParcSlope will provide a more comfortable viewing angle. The typing position may take some getting used to, though some users may prefer it. ParcSlope for MacBook won’t take up much space during use or otherwise, as it can be stored upright.
