The Stand's elegant design is inspired by the new wave of utilitarian design. With its clean lines, unibody design, and smooth finish, the solid aluminum base provides a perfect fit for displaying and working on the new iPad. With the ability to hold the iPad at an easy to use angle, the user is able to position the iPad in a comfortable angle for typing in either the landscape or portrait mode. The stand is heavy and stable enough to support typing by the user. It is a gorgeous stand for the iPad that accentuates many of the attributes of the iPad.
