I’m loathe to take advantage of anything that adds thickness to my devices, and haven’t put a case on any of my nine iPhones, so you know I really like this thing.

It might seem slight, but a little ergonomics goes a long way when it comes to laptops. The BaseLift angles your keyboard toward you and raises your screen, which makes a huge difference whether you’re at work, at a coffeeshop, in an airplane seat, or in bed. The extra space between your lap and the laptop for heat to dissipate can’t hurt either.

When not in use, the BaseLift folds flat, and didn’t prevent my New MacBook from fitting in the tightest of sleeves.
