Satechi’s R1 Aluminum Foldable Stand gets even sturdier

Satechi has updated its R1 Aluminum Foldable Stand. It now sports the hinge power to hold to MacBooks from 2016 and 2017. The total weight can now hold up to 35 pounds. Cool!

Compatible with laptops, tablets, smartphones, and other mobile devices, the stand lets you position your devices in various positions for watching videos, gaming, video chatting or working on a tablet with a keyboard. The Satechi R1 Aluminum Foldable Stand is available now in space gray, silver, gold or rose gold for $39.99 at and

If you need a stand for laptops and tablets, the R1 will fit your needs — and my Apple World Today compadre, Steve Sande, is a big fan; see his review here. However, if you simply need one for the iPad, I prefer Logitech’s Logo Base as it’s one of the few products that takes advantage of Apple’s Smart Connector.
