Cooler Master ROC Tablet & Notebook Stand Review

It’s pretty obvious, ROC will hold you iPad or MacBook Pro. ROC can save space on your desk by allowing a MacBook Pro to stand vertically or horizontally, accentuating the MacBook Pro’s thinnest side.

Once a MacBook Pro is in the stand, it is possible to go completely wireless by utilizing AirPlay mirroring, along with a bluetooth keyboard and mouse. I tested this setup in my office at work, it was pretty sweet to not have any wires connected to my laptop. Anyone who walked into the office thought I was playing tricks on them, or that ROC had magical powers. Needless to say, everyone thought it was an awesome setup.

If iPads are your interest, you’ll be glad to know that ROC has no problem holding those either. I tested iPad 2, 3rd, and 4th Generations. They’re all very similar form factors, so it isn’t surprising each iPad fit without trouble.

ROC was able to successfully hold the iPad while I played Dumb Ways To Die and Flappy Bird. Typing an email while an iPad rested in ROC was easy in portrait or landscape.

Cooler Master’s ROC will hold a MacBook Pro or iPad in multiple orientations. ROC has enough weight, so it won’t tip over while holding expensive devices. Beyond providing a fancy way to display devices, ROC is also pretty functional. It was easy to play games and write emails while an iPad was resting in ROC.

ROC retails for $41.99 at my favorite online retailer, but even though ROC is a very well made stand, $41.99 feels a bit too expensive. If you can catch ROC on sale for $34.99 or less, it is a worthy multi-functional stand.

– Well made, heavy construction
– Holds MacBook Pro or iPad in multiple orientations
– Rubber bottom and slots prevent devices from slipping or falling

– A bit expensive
