Twelve South Launches More Affordable Curve SE Stand for Mac Notebooks

Popular accessory maker Twelve South today announced the launch of the Curve SE, an aluminum multi-piece stand that builds on the original Curve MacBook Stand.

The three pieces of the Curve SE snap together so you can position your MacBook at the ideal ergonomic height. It can be used alongside a secondary display like the Studio Display, and you can also adjust it to put your webcam at eye level for better video calls.

Twelve South's Curve SE is similar in design to the standard Curve, but it is more affordable, coming in at $20 less. It has the same benefits and a sleek, aluminum design, but it does not feature the same black or white matte finish as the original.

There are silicone-lined arms that grip your MacBook to hold it securely in place on the stand, just like the standard Curve stand. In terms of design, it is basically identical to the Curve stand, but with the three-piece assembly that keeps costs down.

The Curve SE is priced at $40 and it can be purchased from the Twelve South website.

I've been very happy with the raindesign mStand, but it's pricier than the Curve.

Regardless, elevating your laptop is a great idea when it's on your desk: It puts the display at eye level and, most importantly, protects it from spills. It's saved my laptop a few times.

This of course requires using an external KB and mouse/trackpad, but using these does save wear and tear on the laptop.

Are all the upvotes on this from people who actually used their products or who just like to support complaining?
