BookArc Flex is a stunningly beautiful vertical MacBook stand. BookArc Flex maximizes desk space by holding your MacBook vertically while connected to a monitor, so you can add a keyboard and mouse to turn your MacBook into a desktop. Place your MacBook inside and your laptop’s own weight draws the stand’s supporting arcs together. BookArc Flex cradles the Mac you have now and in the future by automatically adjusting to any size MacBook up to 1-inch thick without additional inserts. 

Create a comfortable, powerful desktop setup. 

  • Run your MacBook or laptop closed, while attached to an external monitor, keyboard and mouse for a true desktop setup
  • Beautiful all-metal arc design gently holds most laptops without additional adjustments (laptops with screens up to 16" and less than 1-inch thick)
  • Save desktop space and makes room for large external displays, even on the smallest desks

Create a comfortable, powerful desktop setup.

Spend a lot of time at a desk with your laptop? Use BookArc Flex to turn your laptop into a powerful mini desktop. This tiny stand makes room for a full-size keyboard, mouse and external monitor, improving comfort and productivity. Taking your laptop to a meeting or home for the night is as simple as unplugging it and lifting it out of BookArc Flex.

Minimalist design for maximum focus.

Perhaps the real beauty of BookArc Flex is that it allows you to use one large display. Whether you’re editing a video, writing a blog post, or diving deep into a Numbers sheet, having one big screen helps you laser focus on the project. Using your MacBook in Closed Display Mode is a thing of beauty in itself.

Design focus in mind.

Inspired by modern architecture, BookArc Flex is truly a minimalist work of art, that uses the weight of your laptop to secure the arcs against your laptop, allowing for universal compatibility without the need for inserts. This design focus is even reflected in the finishes, with a matte black and matte white inspired by interior design trends, and a beautiful premium chrome edition with a mirrored finish that reflects the room it's in.

BookArc Flex FAQs

Just how sturdy is BookArc Flex?
BookArc Flex holds most laptops with up to a 16-inch screen and under 1-inch thick, perfectly sturdy. But use common sense; if your office is in a bumpy construction zone, or you have cats walking all over your desk and they have knocked down items before, you might want an entirely different style stand like our Twelve South Curve Flex.
Also note: We recommend you set your laptop into BookArc Flex as straight as possible (90 degrees to the desk), as BookArc will not correct an improperly placed laptop.
With these considerations, we find BookArc Flex to be a beautiful and sturdy vertical stand for your MacBook or laptop.
Will I need to purchase inserts when upgrading to a newer machine?
As long as it is within the compatible dimensions, BookArc Flex will work with any laptop you have now or that you may buy in the future. No ifs, ands or add-ons!

    Vertical laptop stands

    After using the Book Arc Flex for 2 weeks I can say that it’s the best vertical stand I have ever used.

    With its minimalistic and high tech design it complements the look of your apple gear.

    Excellent support

    Good material and holds the 14" MacBook Pro steady.

    I like what they have done by making this product future proof. They made it so that future versions of the MacBook Pro or other MacBook models would fit and be snug. I had an older model (wood), but my new M3 MacBook would not fit in it.
