Griffin Technology today introduced the Elevator desktop stand for portable computers. Elevator raises laptops off the desktop and helps users reclaim valuable desktop real estate.
Griffin has designed Elevator as a substantial realization of a simple design. Elevator uses a 1/2-inch-thick crossbar to hold two 1/4-inch-thick aluminum standards, positioning the laptop’s screen at an ideal height for viewing.
Crystal-clear polycarbonate and aircraft-grade aluminum with a matte silver finish meet in Elevator’s minimalist design to create a desktop accessory that looks as good holding the laptop as it does sitting empty, waiting patiently to be of service.
Elevator raises the laptop 5.5 inches (13.9cm) off the desktop to decrease user neck strain. Elevator’s open-air design allows air to freely circulate around the laptop’s cooling vents.
What to do with that newly created space under your laptop? Most users will find it handy for tucking keyboard and mouse away when not in use. The extra-resourceful among you will discover that the space also makes an ideal hideaway for that oft-stolen stapler, or the bowl of sunflower seeds that the guy from Marketing plunders when you’re not looking.
Griffin’s Elevator desktop stand accommodates all Macintosh laptops and other laptops 10 inches wide and wider.
