Design

The ParcSlope is a hybrid laptop stand designed to elevate the back of your MacBook, enhancing screen visibility and typing comfort. It’s crafted from solid aluminum and is compatible with any MacBook model, whether it’s the compact 11-inch MacBook Air or the larger 17-inch MacBook Pro.

Every Twelve South product is tailored for Apple devices, and the ParcSlope is no exception.

It features strategically placed ridges for optimal screen clearance and a sleek, minimalist design.

The stand includes a silicone lip to secure your MacBook and rubber feet to protect your desk surface.

The name “ParcSlope” nods to both the trendy Park Slope neighborhood in Brooklyn and the influential Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), known for its pioneering work in graphical user interfaces.

Function

Testing the ParcSlope with a 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro proved its ease of use; simply place it on a surface, set your MacBook on it, and you’re ready to go. The design includes a cable management hole for organizing your power and data cables, which are neatly secured by the stand when not connected to the MacBook.

The angled design, which elevates the screen and keyboard, provided a surprisingly comfortable typing experience compared to the flat positioning of a typical MacBook.

Conclusion

Twelve South continues to impress with the ParcSlope, a robust and stylish solution that enhances the usability of MacBooks.
