BookArc for MacBook Pro

Turn your laptop into a desktop
Our new BookArc has been redesigned and engineered to make it the ultimate stand for MacBook Pro and MacBook Pro with Retina display. Its soft silicone insert is molded to follow the gentle curves of MacBook Pro for a precise fit. So park your MacBook Pro in this stand and watch your laptop become the ultimate desktop.

BookArc is designed exclusively for the 13, 15, 17-inch MacBook Pro (unibody) and MacBook Pro with Retina display.

Zen-like workspace.
Compared to your MacBook Pro lying flat on your desk, BookArc for MacBook Pro takes up a fraction of the your workspace a clean, less cluttered look. And soft silicone feet provide sturdy footing that won't leave marks on your desk. Go ahead and say "om."

Hidden cable management system.
Underneath BookArc for MacBook Pro are two hidden cable managers that prevent your monitor, USB, and power cables from slipping to the floor when you unplug your MacBook Pro. The new BookArc for MacBook Pro also ships with an insert custom made for MacBook Pro with Retina display.

BookArc can help boost productivity.
Did you know you can work with your MacBook Pro closed when connected to an external monitor? You can. Using your MacBook in Closed-Clamshell Mode in a BookArc can also give your MacBook a performance boost, compared to a dual-monitor setup. How? When you close your MacBook, your system automatically dedicates 100% of its video memory to the external display rather than splitting it with the built-in display.

Depending on your MacBook model, you can see snappier graphics and faster screen refreshes, especially when working in graphics-intensive applications like Aperture and Photoshop. BookArc didnt create the feature, but it can teach your MacBook the trick.

Focus on one big screen.
Why work with your beautiful Retina Display closed with your MacBook Pro resting in a BookArc? While the Retina Display is amazing, pixels are pixels and size is size. A 27-inch external display dwarfs a 15-inch monitor when it comes to editing movies in Final Cut Pro, retouching photos in Aperture, scanning huge spreadsheets in Numbers or viewing multiple apps at once. Use your Retina Display on the road and BookArc Pro and a desktop monitor at home.

Key facts:

  • Use MacBook closed in BookArc for best performance at home or office
  • Free up valuable desk space by elevating MacBook off the desk
    Cable management keeps desktop connections handy and accessible


  • MacBook Pro (Unibody style)
  • MacBook Pro with Retina display
