What We Would Buy 

These are all great foldable stands but if we were to choose one, it has to be the Nulaxy laptop stand. If you prefer a cheaper option, we have two on the list: the Lamicall stand and the Skrebba stand. For something more complex and well-ventilated, the Skrebba is a righteous choice. But if you want an alternative for the Skrebba, the Pannon aluminum stand also fits perfectly since its design is specifically tailored for a MacBook Pro and Air.
