Use a $2 Ikea Napkin Holder as a Vertical MacBook Stand
Want a super cheap vertical stand for your MacBook Pro? Try this $1.99 Ikea FANTASTIK napkin holder, apparently it’ll hold a MacBook Pro just fine (looks like a 13″ judging by the SuperDrive). Sure, it’s not the super sleak BookArc, but it’s also $48 cheaper.
Unfortunately you can’t buy the “FANTASTIK” stand online, so you’ll have to find it at a local Ikea store. This is what it looks like without the MacBook in it:
Vertical MacBook stands are definitely nice, you’ll need to run the MacBook Pro with the lid closed in clamshell mode but you end up turning your portable into a desktop, the trade-off is you lose the productivity boost of a second display.
Thanks Jared for the heads up!
