If you just want simple and cheap, I bought this at Best Buy for about $13/$14 USD.

I don't see it on B.B.'s website at the moment but they might still have them in the stores. It doesn't have cooling fans but as long as your Mac is on a flat surface, so what?

I almost bought one of those the other day while visiting my local Office Depot store. Seems to me it was more expensive, like around $20 to $25.

But since I already had a Griffin Elevator, I passed on it.

Regards.

@Marcos - Great work.

+2 for the mStand, it's very strong, not for typing on however, recommend having an external keyboard.

@Mickyfin

Thanks, yours also a great and simple way to make a stand like structure or structures haha, on mine I decided to have the least support on the bottom so the air could really flow trough, not like other stands outthere.
