Jason Snell over at Macworld got his hands on
an interesting new notebook stand: the Ergotron Neo-Flex Combo Lift Stand
. What's different about it is that it not only holds the notebook, like the Griffin Elevator
I use, but also includes a VESA mount for an external LCD display. By having the notebook platform and the VESA mount on a single base the Neo-Flex lets you put your laptop screen right next to your external display for a relatively seamless multi-display setup. And since everything is on one base it frees up desk space for your keyboard and mouse.
Of course there's a price to be paid for this convenience and stylishness: $179. Nonetheless, this looks like one of the slickest setups out there for using a Mac portable together with an external monitor.
