Just a quick hack!


I needed a decent laptop stand. I happened to have a few spare VESA monitor arm mounts. I ordered a breadboard on ebay together with some black M4 countersunk bolts, some washers and Nyloctm nuts.

10 Minutes later, using the VESA mount as a template with a 4mm drill with countersink, I had this:

I’m currently using it at work. It fits my MacBook perfectly.
