NX Stand by Macessity Mac or PC

Updated on July 8, 2014

Desktop storage is a hot topic. An entire industry has been built around people needing to organize their space including their electronic gadgets. Laptops, iPads, cell phones, flash drives, external hard drives and MP3 players spread across flat surfaces all over the world. Typically something that you use daily does not get stored away. As we rush out of the door we grab our gadgets and go.

There may not be a really good way to corral all of our gadgets but there is an item that could help store some of them. The NX Stand by Macessity is simple and unique – unlike other stands you have seen before. It allows the use of a MacBook, a MacBook Pro, a MacBook Air or a PowerBook G4 in the “Closed Display Mode” while connected to an external monitor. It is a great place to leave any laptop or iPad while not in use. A separate space accommodates an external hard/backup drive and there is also a built-in 4 USB hub.

 

The NX Stand’s footprint is amazingly small. The overall measurements of the steel NX Stand is just a little more than 4 inches wide X 8.7 inches long and 7 inches tall. It is painted in an aluminum powder-coat finish to match Apple products. It is shaped like a large “N”. The section designed to hold a laptop is open at the top so the notebook can be small like a Netbook or as large as those measuring 17 inches or larger. All ports are accessible while in the NX Stand and the fan has open space to release heat. Large cushioned pads protect the surface of all laptops.

The second open space of the NX Stand offers space for an external drive measuring approximately 2.75 inches wide X 6.75 inches tall X 9.25 inches long. A few choices could include the MyBook, the Lacie d2 or the Seagate Free Agent. I use both a Click-Free and a Seagate Replica backup drive – both would fit well into the NX Stand.

 

Macessity Laptuk Stand is Similar to the NX only it lays down instead of standing up

I like the NX Stand because it is so simple and versatile. It is heavy enough to be sturdy and small enough to only take up a sliver of space. It is at home on a desktop or a kitchen counter without looking to gadgetry. I use at least two laptops – not always at the same time. There is enough room on my desk for two NX Stands and keeps my workspace clear. If family or friends come over and sit at my desk I know that my electronics are safe. It takes very little time and effort to lift my laptop out of the NX Stand and get back to work.

      I use an HP Netbook and a Sony Vaio. I bought an iPad 3G recently since I really love my iPhone.

      I don't have the need for it at this time, but see how it would be very handy. Do you use a Mac computer or laptop at this time?
