Macessity Intros TrayStation for Apple Laptops
Approved by: Glenn
Category: MacBook

123MacBook- "Macessity today announced the release of TrayStation, a new combination stand, riser and cooling tray for Apple laptops. The cooling tray can also be removed from the base of the stand and used as a portable laptop cooler. Now, is that handy or what?"

At first I was thinking what...

I have to applaud Macessity for thinking outside the box on this one. There are a few things that I probably would have done a little different with the photos. Why not have a nice wireless Bluetooth keyboard/mouse on the desk in front of the stand. The first thing I thought of was how the heck are you supposed to type on that thing.

I like the idea of getting the laptop up higher. Ergonomics is a huge issue with laptops. I also like how the cooling tray keeps the laptop of the desk in case of coffee spills. (smart to have the coffee in the photo).

Anyhow I think this is a great design. It may be tough to sell this one online as I'm sure people would like to see how easily the laptop connects to the stand. How easily the cooling tray can be removed from the laptop etc. How sturdy the laptop will be perched 6" off the desk etc.

I'm not a buyer already owning an mStand, but I think it's an interesting design. My only concern with this one would be with the tray tipping over or getting bumped off the stand. It looks like it just sits down on the stand around those tabs. What happens if you press down on the palm rest of your MacBook? Wouldn't the other side lift?

I think they could have done better with pricing, but that's a nice looking stand. I have an mStand like Aquaman sitting next to a Cinema. I hardly ever use the thing though. I tend to use my MBP more in bed and while sitting back in chairs. I mostly use the mStand for storage and protecting the MBP from desktop spills.
