South Carolina-based Twelve South has released a new adjustable desktop stand designed to compliment Apple's sleek aluminum notebooks. The HiRise for MacBook stand elevates the notebook from a few inches to half a foot off the desk, while staying nearly invisible.

TwelveSouth sells a riser for the iMac as well, also called the HiRise.

Twelve South's HiRise for MacBook is the only height-adjustable desktop stand that lets you turn your notebook into a comfortable desktop. Unlike a fixed stand, HiRise lets you elevate your MacBook to your most comfortable viewing height, from a few inches to half a foot off your desk. The sturdy, brushed metal stand is designed to work with MacBooks—and people—of all sizes.

HiRise for MacBook is available for $70 on the Twelve South website and Apple's online and retail stores.

I'm buying it.

I've chatted with the owner Andrew and he's a standup guy. I love that he is as uncompromising as Apple when it comes to design.

Plus he's Mac only. I'll support him..even if that means paying a slight premium.

Nice try Andrew.

Hah... $70 is too steep? Based on what? That 70 is a bigger number than ten? Some of you really have no idea how much it costs to produce short run products like this.

$70 is steep... in our industry, we make products of similar materials and processes, but you'd be lucky to get a quote under $300 per for something like this. Imagine $100,000 min tool & die cost, + a few weeks of prototyping at $180/hr, +...
