Griffin Elevator stand
Accessory maker Griffin has announced the Elevator, a desktop stand for laptops. The Elevator raises a laptop 5.5 inches, bringing it closer to eye level while simultaneously making it easier to type. The accessory also offers users more space to place desktop items such as mice, keyboards or cups. The stand is constructed from aluminum and transparent polycarbonate, but is deliberately designed to expose the bottom of any notebook in use to permit better cooling. All laptops greater than 10 inches in length -- which includes Apple's MacBook and MacBook Pro -- are supported. The Elevator is available for $40 online.
