Twelve South today announced that its BookArc möd stand is now compatible with MacBook Pro models released in 2016 and later.

The stand now ships with two interchangeable silicone inserts that can hold 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro models with Thunderbolt 3 ports, older 2012-2015 era MacBook Pro models, any 12-inch MacBook, and any MacBook Air.

BookArc is a popular stand for docking a MacBook vertically in closed-display mode. The aluminum version is already compatible with the 2016 and later MacBook Pro, and now the hardwood version is too after a much longer wait.

BookArc möd is on sale for $49.99, down from $59.99, via Twelve South's online store. The aluminum BookArc is $49.99.

Cool, took them two years.
I was thinking the same thing. I know Apple likes to take their time to get products just right, but these people? Sheesh. And speaking of, I’m STILL waiting for HengeDocks to come out with their vertical stand/dock for the new MBP.

Is it really a good idea to run CPU or graphics intensive applications with the laptop screen closed for extended periods of time?

You try bending wood into an arch.
No need to reinvent the wheel!

I would like to know this as well, as someone who is moving from an iMac to a MBP.

It's perfectly safe. There's also less strain on the GPU because it doesn't have to run the internal monitor and the external one.
