Don't hesitate - definitely a keeper!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: mStand Laptop Stand (Personal Computers)
I saw many of the reviews who had used this with a 15" laptop, and wondered how well it would work with my 17" MBP. I don't know anyone that owns one, so I was a little uncertain. No worries - it works PERFECTLY! See the image I loaded that shows it in use, along with a 22" Gateway monitor, and a 24" HP monitor that complete my workstation.
The design leaves room underneath the unit, which is great for extra storage, or sliding a keyboard under (although it's not quite high enough if you tried to type under it). Solid construction that should last, quite simply, forever. The unit positions the laptop's screen to a height that works perfectly with my other external monitors.
Interestingly enough, the packaging it came in even reminded me of how Apple would have packaged it. It's a wonderful product that fills an obvious need, and is one of those "why didn't I think of that" items. Simple design, beautiful, and very functional.

Google Other World Computing (OWC), and look on their site for "OWC USB to VGA.... Display adapter". If you can't find it, just call them. Works great!

nice! i have an i7 doesn't look like it is full proof for it..
Note:1. There is a possible incompatibility issue with i5 and i7 iMac models and we are awaiting DisplayLink's pending driver update to further test for proper operation with those models.
Thanks for the info might give it a shot just to see!

I have three monitors hooked up to my MacBook Pro 15". I use the DVI cable and two DisplayLink USB adapters. They work great.

Hi I took a look at the photo thanks for posting it. I'm really interested in being able to type with my external keyboard underneath the stand, is there enough clearance to do so? What if I push the external keyboard under the highest point of the stand? I can touch type so I don't need to be able to see my fingers. Thanks in advance.

How big is the back access hole for cords?

Glad it helped. That was 4 years ago and I'm still using it today.
