What To Look For When Buying A Laptop Stand

my cluttered MacBook desk If your laptop workspace looks anything like mine then you know space is at premium. I wanted a laptop stand that could save space and put my MacBook at a better viewing angle. I also hate using my keyboard on a flat surface, it just feels awkward and strains my wrists.

New MacBook Riser in BlueSurprisingly, after doing some research I couldn’t find a product that met my needs, so I decided to design and build one myself. In choosing a material I decided to go with acrylic to add color to my new laptop stand. My main issue is raising my MacBook for better viewing, so I built a tapered angle into the laptop riser with a non-skid rubber pad to rest the laptop on. By positioning my Macbook up or down on the angled surface I can adjust the viewing angle. This also makes using the keyboard much more comfortable.

Laptop Stand And Space-SaverI was able to find many laptop stands that could raise my MacBook but what I couldn’t find is a space-saver when I’m not using it. As you can tell from my desk, pictured above, I need more room. With my Laptop stand I designed a rear pocket so that I could hold my MacBook at a 90 degree angle when not in use. This saves me a ton of room and it looks cool. I know this because my friends keep asking me to make one for them.

I recently added it to our website and it has been one of our best sellers. If you would like more details please visit Laptop Lift 90 from newPCgadgets.com

Tips To Secure An iPad mini 4 To The Wall

For businesses, storefronts and others looking to secruley mount an iPad mini 4 (latest version) the wall here is some useful tips. There are three types of secure wall mounts and they include; a flush in-wall mount, a flexible extended mount and a flat mount. Each type offers different benefits.

How To Secure The iPhone From Theft For Business, Retail And Trade-Shows

Apple does not provide a cable lock, anti-theft solution for displaying the iPhone 5, 6, 7 or iPod Touch for business. As a result, companies are always looking for a solution for their counter display, retail store or upcoming trade-show. Audio alarm cables, like you see at the Apple store are one solution but they are very expensive and are designed for a large quantity of displays in order to be cost effective. Also, they are not very useful at noisy trade-shows.

Locking iPhone Security Cable

iPhone Security Brackets And Cable Mount

Another option would be a hardware solution utilizing a locking bracket and cable assembly. This solution typically provides outer-brackets that secure with tension and a center cable that attach to a fixed object. This solution offers flexibility for people handling the iPhone and prevents removal (unlike the audio alarm). These security kits typically sell for under $50.

For large retail operations the audio alarm solution may be the better choice. For trade-shows and counter mounts the bracket and cable solution would most likely be the better fit. For a cable lock solution visit newPCgadgets.com
