Three reasons why you need a BookArc
| || || |
Create a Zen-like workspace
With a footprint of just 10 x 4 inches, BookArc takes up a fraction of the space your MacBook Pro uses laying flat. Soft, silicone footpads keep it stable and free your desk from marks or scratches.
One Arc fits all
To ensure the perfect fit, BookArc includes two different sized scratch-free, silicone cushions. These gently grip the various MacBook and MacBook Pro models and ensures the perfect fit right out of the box. Cushions are super easy to install and remove making it easy for BookArc to switch from one MacBook model to another.
You can actually boost the performance of your MacBook or MacBook Pro by running it closed in the BookArc. That's because your system automatically dedicates 100% of its video memory to the external display rather than splitting it with the built-in display. You’ll see a noticeable speed increase when working in many graphics-intensive applications.
...And more reasons:
A Work of Arc.
Carved from strong, heavy gauge steel, BookArc vertically holds your White MacBook or your 13" to 17" MacBook Pro. Park your BookArc-cradled MacBook next to your LED Cinema Display and you’ll have the coolest desktop/laptop set-up your desk has ever seen.
