I use this stand on a daily basis, and though my laptop eventually started to slide, I read in the instructions that I needed to clean the pads to rid them of dust and debris that can build up causing this. Now I do it every month and my laptop doesn't budge.

I was concerned about buying this stand based on the reviews claiming that laptops were slipping right off of it. This seemed like a small risk to me considering where I intended to use it. This, coupled with the $20 savings over the mStand I was otherwise considering, led me to purchase in spite of my reservations. I'm glad I did, because I love it, and there has obviously been a redesign of arms on which the laptop sits. Like the previous reviewer noted, Griffin has added plastic caps to the ends of these arms. I have posted a customer image in case this is unclear.

I highly recommend this stand; it is exactly what I was looking for.

I got this product for my 15" Mac Book pro and was initially thrilled as it is a nice looking product that keeps the computer elevated at an excellent angle. But after about 4 months, I noticed the computer would start to slip down the stand, that the grip pads were not holding the computer anymore. Maybe the heat from the laptop melted the grip on the pads or something. After the computer slid all the off and hit my desk one night I just threw the stand away.

About an hour after leaving my laptops side I awake to a crash and realized that my laptop was no longer on my desk but on the floor. I had left the screen open with it on what i thought was a secure laptop stand. I closed the laptop and put it further up on the stand so i could see if it slipped down by morning. . .Well it did, the computer slipped a good 3 or four inches. This product needs some sort of lip on the end of it so the computer does not fall off. The previous clear model from Griffin had this and I am not sure by they decided to get rid of it. I am going to return the product. My laptop is worth too much to risk it falling again.

Although I have used the Griffin I Curve (predecessor) for a couple of years now, I recently noticed my 17" Dell notebook was slipping off this stand. I was initially very pleased with this product, but felt compelled to try the successor product, the Griffin Elevator, due to the slippage. Initially this seemed like a dicey proposition, since several other reviewers have mentioned slippage problems with the Elevator. I'm not doubting their reviews, but I do think there are actually design improvements. Here are my observations:

1. The angle of downward slope from the supporting prongs is noticeably less on the Elevator. Conceivably, less downward slope translates into less slippage. The computer is almost parallel now, necessitating usage of an external keyboard. Previously, if the computer was angled forward enough on the I Curve, you could get away with using the notebook's own keyboard (at the risk of the whole thing slipping off). This means that an external keyboard is now mandatory. Fortunately, similar to the I Curve, there is plenty of room under the Elevator stand to store an external keyboard or other accessories.

2. The Elevator's supporting prongs have a "full-length" rubber-type material, as opposed to two silicon-type pads on each prong of the I Curve. Conceivably the longer grips should also reduce slippage. Perhaps keeping the rubber clean is the secret to success, since dust and dirt would decrease the adhesion of the computer. However, going back to the angle theory, I don't think this is essential. How can something sitting nearly parallel on a supporting stand slip???

3. The stand easily disassembles for portable use.

The I Curve wins hands down on aesthetics, with its gracious clear acrylic curves. I think most people would go for function rather than form in this regard. I'm man enough to edit my review if slippage becomes an issue. For now, I think this product is a winner.

Using it is great. It's elevated to the perfect height but my powerbook ended up on the floor in the middle of the night. Now my new hardwood floors are scratched and my powerbook and the battery for it are completely dented. I'm returning it the thing

They really do need to make a lip or use different grips or something.

THIS STAND IS DANGEROUS. DO NOT TRUST IT TO SUPPORT YOUR LAPTOP.

This stand loses grip over time. A few nights ago, I watched (in slow motion horror accompanied by a classic muffled/panicked "nooooooooooo...." for added effect) as my macbook pro slid off the stand and onto my kitchen floor. The laptop was fully on the stand prior to sliding off. After that, the laptop wouldn't boot.

I took my laptop to the Apple store to have it diagnosed. My hard drive was broken because of the fall. This was not all. I now have a big dent on my laptop and a ding in my kitchen floor.

I called Griffin Technology to see what they could do for me. They said that since the stand was more than 2 months old that it was not a manufacturing defect and that they would be unable to cover the cost of the replacement hard drive and shell. The hard drive and new torx set cost over $120. I don't even want to guess how much a new macbook pro shell would cost me.

It is concerning that Griffin believes that a $30+ stand which supports a multi-thousand dollar computer should only be stable for one to two months.

I spent the next day dissembling my laptop, installing a new hard drive, attempting to bend my laptop shell back into shape, reassembling my laptop, restoring OS-X and the environment that I had on the computer.

I should have trusted my first instinct to not buy products from Griffin.
