MacRumors Giveaway: Win a Magnetic iPad Stand From Lululook
For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Lululook to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win an Urban Magnetic iPad Stand that turns an iPad Pro or an iPad Air into a little iMac for a desktop setup.
As the name suggests, the Urban iPad Stand has a strong built-in magnet that's designed to attach to a compatible iPad. Like the iPhone and a MagSafe charger, the iPad and the stand automatically align with one another.
Once on the stand, the iPad is at an ideal height to provide an ergonomic viewing experience, and with the adjustable hinge at the back, it can be rotated around 360 degrees to any viewing angle that works best for you. It's useful for watching movies, working with a keyboard and mouse, drawing, and more.
Available in either silver or space gray, the iPad Stand matches well with Apple's devices, and it is made from a hard, durable aluminum material that will last for years to come. It's priced at $70.
The Urban Magnetic Stand is compatible with all of Apple's modern iPad,s including the third, fourth, and fifth-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro models, the first, second, and third-generation 11-inch iPad Pro models, and the fourth-generation MacBook Air.
We have 10 of the Urban Magnetic iPad Stands to give away to MacRumors readers. To enter to win, use the Gleam.io widget below and enter an email address.

And I really hated it.
Been sent to recycling by now...
It is OK if you never move it, and never adjust the hinge.
If you keep the tilt angle exactly as it is, and the stand in exactly the same position on your desk, it'll be fine.
But that is not my use case.
I move the stand around a lot. Between my desk and the coffee table and the dining table and the kitchen table and back.
And every time I also adjusted the viewing angle of the hinge.
If you do all that, then this stand is definitely not for you!
On top of that, this stand is actually very heavy. Is not much fun to constantly carry around. Bulky and heavy.
After merely 2 weeks, the hinge went limp. The iPad always drooped. In fact when the hinge drooped the first time, my iPad also dropped off the stand, which caused a small dent on the iPad's rim as it hit something on my desk...
Luckily the screen did not break.
The stand comes with a hex driver, and you really need that one!
Be weary of any stand that comes with a hex driver! Because you likely will need it! And a lot.
I ended up having to tighten the hinge every day - it has two hex screws on either side of the hinge. If I tightened both screws, the stand worked for another day, which in my case meant about 3-5 hinge adjustments, after which the hinge wore out again and the iPad started drooping again...
Retightening both hex screws again...
Rinse lather and repeat.
It got really annoying.
Useless stand, in my opinion.
After I threw this Lululook stand away, I purchased this one from Invzi instead:
Does the same thing, but is much lighter, hence easier to carry around - while still sturdy.
And after 4 weeks of use, the hinges are still strong.
In fact this stand does not even come with any screw or hex driver - and the hinges have no means of tightening. They do not need it.
Much better product IMHO.
Just my 2 cents on that Lululook stand...
Don't get it. Save your money. Get another product.
