If you aren’t too keen about spending nearly $300 on a laptop stand, then the Macessity NX Stand may be a better alternative. At just $60, it comes with a side slot for an external harddrive and a built-in 4-port USB hub (along with allowing you to access the laptop’s USB hubs while in the stand).

In terms of usefulness, I feel like the NX Stand beats out the Balmuda Floater by a long shot. Plus, it helps that the NX Stand is a fraction of the price. Anybody own this who can attest to the solid steel make? Sturdy or not?
