Twelve South BookArc

Twelve South, a maker of innovative Apple device accessories, says:

“Don’t lose precious desk space when using your MacBook to run your desktop setup. With BookArc you can simply slide your MacBook into a perfectly measured silicone slot, connect it to an external display, add a full-size keyboard and mouse, and enjoy the comfort of a desktop setup. BookArc allows you to run a full desktop setup with your MacBook. Did you know your MacBook was designed for this? Apple experts suggest utilizing a little-known feature called closed-clamshell mode. According to Apple, all MacBooks, MacBook Pros, MacBook Air and PowerBook G4s can work in Closed Clamshell mode.”

Ready to hit the road? Unplug the MacBook and BookArc’s newly designed cable-catch feature keeps your cables from falling to the floor. BookArc gives you the best of both worlds — a portable machine for when you’re on the go, and a 5K desktop setup for when you’re stationed at a desk.

Scaled, refined and optimized to fit most MacBooks from the ultra-light 12-inch to the 2016 Pro Thunderbolt, the all-aluminum design of BookArc cradles your MacBook in a soft interchangable silicone insert that is crafted to fit your notebook.

The current BookArc features three interchangeable included inserts that work to ensure a perfect fit with the MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C), MacBook (12-inch), MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Retina Display (2012 – 2015 Models).

To complement Apple’s latest designs, Twelve South have added a Space Gray option to BookArc iin addition to Silver.
