[prMac.com] XChange International, the source for extended technology worldwide, are pleased to announce the release of the new mStand ergonomic laptop stand and the iRest aluminium coloured gel wrist rest.
mStand - Designed for the Apple® MacBook® and MacBook Pro®, and suitable for all laptops, mStand helps users work comfortably and safely every day by raising their laptop to the same ergonomic height as the external display. mStand is made of a single solid piece of aluminium with matching MacBook Pro's sand-blasted and silver anodised finish. mStand transforms a laptop into a stable and stylish workstation. All ergonomic guidelines recommend placing the screen at eye level, and keeping the back, forearms and wrists straight. This can be achieved by using a laptop with mStand, external keyboard and mouse. mStand helps users work comfortably and safely every day.
The mStand is extremely stable because it has a large base support of 7.5 inches x 10 inches. (190mm x 253 mm). The mStand is big enough for the 17" MacBook Pro to sit securely on it.There is a lip at the front of the mStand which prevents it from slipping forward. There are also rubber pads on the corners for extra grip. It is made of a single solid aluminium plate (not strip) that is forged (not cast) at the edges to give extra strength. The mStand thickness of 1/10 inch (2.5mm) is similar to the thickness of a dinner plate.
