For those who don’t fancy carrying a separate wider, this awesome invisible stand can work perfectly. It’s the size of an A5 paper and turns into two angles(15° and 25°}. It carries weights of up to 18lbs beside being so small and discreet. This stand works by producing something like an adhesive that sticks to the back of your laptop. The problem is this adhesive may come to wear out and make it hard to hold your laptop firmly if you keep on changing it from device to device. Ensure that this sticks to only that one laptop that you plan to use.

Equal Peaks paramount laptop stand
If we were to consider aesthetics alone, this stand would come out on top. We love the minimalist glass effect acrylic unit, which also comes in other colours, and think the single-component design is inspired. Our tester’s 13 MacBook Pro felt safe and secure while working and keyboard cables were kept tidily out of the way when fed through the hole at the back. The storage space in the void below the laptop also comes in handy to keep the work area clutter-free. The only potential downside to this stand is that it is not height adjustable, so although our 171cm-tester found it perfect and now cannot work without it, this may not be the case for people of other heights.
