This Book arc was designed to fit a Macbook Air to a 17 inch Macbook pro. So it basically helps you save space and by quite a lot as well.
New stand turns Apple MacBook into a desktop
Charleston, SC—August 25, 2009—Twelve South announces the formal release of BookArcTM, a metal stand designed to hold any Apple® MacBook, from MacBook Air to the 17-inch MacBook Pro. The stand is designed to free up desk space and create a cleaner, less cluttered workspace by allowing the MacBook to operate while in a closed vertical position. BookArc is available now at the Apple Store and retails for $49.99. A BookArc "six-pack" geared towards design studios and Mac-based offices is being offered at a bundled discount price of $249.99.

When a MacBook is placed into the heavy gauge steel stand, it is held in place by a soft silicone cushion. Three different sizes of easy-to-install cushions are included in the box, ensuring the right fit for various Mac models. Silicone footpads also protect the surface of your desk from scratches. BookArc has a compact footprint of just 10 by 4 inches, a fraction of what a MacBook normally takes up when sitting on a desk.
"Our vision behind BookArc was twofold," said Andrew Green, co-founder and design principal of Twelve South. "First, we see the MacBook as a beautiful piece of art that deserves to be put on display. Second, using your laptop as a desktop when not on the road is how many Mac users work today, including myself. Running the MacBook in a BookArc tucked behind a beautiful Cinema Display frees up valuable space and provides a less cluttered modern-looking workspace."
Along with a contemporary design and improved ergonomics, BookArc can actually boost the performance of MacBooks when used with external monitors. When a MacBook is running closed in the BookArc, the MacBook will automatically dedicate 100% of its video memory to the external display - instead of splitting it with the built-in display. The result is a noticeable speed increase when working in Photoshop, Aperture, iPhoto and other graphics-intensive applications.
