Accessories maker Twelve South introduced a successor to its original HiRise stand for MacBook released about a decade ago — the new HiRise Pro for MacBook. You can watch the video below.
You can adjust its height for almost any use, it matches Apple’s Pro accessories in color and finish, and it features a spot in the base where you can insert a MagSafe charger to juice up your iPhone and other gadgets.
Twelve South HiRise Pro for MacBook
Here’s how Twelve South described the new HiRise Pro for MacBook stand:
HiRise Pro does what fixed stands can’t do. It adjusts up and down to the perfect height for eye-level video calls or to align with your favorite external display.
HiRise Pro is also the first and only stand that stealthily holds your MagSafe Charger for a streamlined workspace.
The metal and vegan leather-trimmed, height-adjustable stand beautifully matches Apple’s Pro accessories.
Adjustable height serves different purposes
In one of the new product videos, a Twelve South rep demonstrated the sleek stand.
“For creative pros’ setups who use external monitors, a big thing for me is to align the horizon at the bottom of them, so you’re creating one huge panoramic screen, not two separate ones,” said Twelve South’s Mark Green in a video.
He described how he likes to line up his external display and MacBook to make the laptop screen an extension.
“And you can do that best when you have a fully adjustable laptop stand like the HiRise Pro,” he added.
And here’s what Twelve South said sets it apart from other stands:
- Adds 2.5 to 6 inches of height for an ergonomic desk setup.
- Elevates webcam to eye level for video calls.
- Built-in housing lets you add MagSafe Charger (not included) to base.
- Fits all laptops and MacBooks from 11-inch Air to 16-inch Pro.
