We couldn’t find any simple & thin Macbook stands on the market, so we decided to make one ourselves! How to invent a perfect portable stand for Macbooks? Here are few factors that we think is important:
It has to be very, VERY thin!
We want it to be very LIGHT in weight.
It must be easy to carry, we want to bring it to everywhere we go!
The product must look and feel nice. Macbook users CANNOT tolerate any imperfections!
It has to be sturdy even after years of usage.
Needs to provide a golden angle for perfect typing gestures
Whoa! Does it sound like a “slightly” challenging task to design this perfect portable stand? Yea it wasn’t so easy.
First we started by picking materials. Most of the portable stands on the market are made out of solid metals. They look pretty nice, but they are quite heavy. It is hard to carry these metal stands around.
We wanted to use a quality material that is lighter in weight. The iPad smart covers caught our attention! YES, we ended up using the EXACT SAME MATERIAL AS THE APPLE iPad SMART COVERS as the material for our “Ultra Thin Portable Stand”.
We placed super fiberglasses within the PU leather in order to make the stand strong and sturdy. This design works very well because all of these materials are very light in weight. Yet, they are all firm materials that make this smart stand very solid and stable.
Then, we wanted to make sure that this stand is extremely portable. The stand somehow has to stick onto the Macbook. Some people might think we use magnets, but NOPE. We tested many, many materials and found that washable adhesives work the best! It is totally reusable, and will remain sticky for years. If it ever gets dusty, just wash it. It will become as good as new again.
