Laptops have become the new desktop computer replacement. People, like myself are on the go and try to take their work with them. When I return to my office instead of being confined to the limited screen real estate of my Macbook Pro’s screen I tend to want to use a secondary and an external keyboard and mouse. the Cooler Master JAS PRO is perfect for this. It allows me to come home and place my Macbook in it’s open position next to my external monitor and use it like another monitor while I interface with my external keyboard and mouse. You can also use it in the closed position with the stand if you like. The high quality lightweight design of the JAS PRO lets me adjust the height of the Macbook to any angle and it’s brushed aluminum matched the rest of the desk’s Apple infused aluminum decor.
The JAS isn’t just limited to working with Macbooks, you can also use it with an iPad and the iPad Mini with ease. I also tried using it with my HP laptop and the adjustable foot at the bottom held the beastly weight of my aging HP laptop. The JAS PRO is very similar to it’s cousin the Cooler Master Cube Stand that we reviewed previously in build quality and ease of use.
The rubber lining of the JAS will protect your device from being scratched and will keep it safely in place. If you are looking for a way to incorporate your Macbook with you external monitor using the JAS will keep your Macbook out of the way, but still allow you to interface with it using a keyboard, mouse or magic trackpad. Looking down at your laptop on your desk can be bad for your neck and back, using the JAS PRO with your laptop upright can help with keeping your posture at a good position and let you use your computer at your normal eye level.
