BookArc Pro is a chrome stand made exclusively to cradle Mac Pro. Crafted from metal, this elegant throne holds Mac Pro securely on its side to operate horizontally vs. the typical upright position. This trims the Mac Pro’s height requirement in half, giving you more placement options — like a secure equipment rack or a free studio shelf. BookArc also gives your Mac Pro a radically different look that some who “think different” may actually prefer. It’s a space saver that makes Mac Pro look like a jet engine… ready to launch your next Mac Pro-driven project into orbit.
BookArc for Mac Pro is a work of desktop art with an interior of solid steel and an exterior of mirrored chrome. The chrome finish was chosen to reflect the light and colors around it. So instead of attempting to emulate the unique black finish of Mac Pro, BookArc reverently reflects the color of the masterpiece floating above it. Soft silicone lines the inset where your Mac Pro rests, and four black silicone feet protect the surface beneath it. Inside the box you’ll even find a polishing cloth to maintain your BookArc’s mirror finish.
A computer as amazing and distinctive as the Mac Pro deserves a worthy pedestal. Who else but the Mac-only team at Twelve South would build a chrome-plated stand that showcases Mac Pro as if it were an Oscar? Apple took a stand with the remarkable design of the Mac Pro. Twelve South delivers the stand to display it.
Your Mac Pro will perform just as well sideways in a BookArc as it will upright. In fact, an Apple Tech Note regarding horizontal placement was the inspiration for BookArc for Mac Pro. If you plan to set up two or more Mac Pros with BookArc Pro, Apple recommends placing the Mac side-by-side, instead of end-to-end. Keep the ends of Mac Pro off walls to ensure proper airflow and you’re good to go.
Many studios and editing suites traditionally put their Macs and PCs sideways in gear racks, and now BookArc gives the Mac Pro that same flexibility. Mac Pro on its side requires only 5 rack spaces, compared to 8 spaces when upright (including necessary ventilation). Cabling flows out the back side to side, instead of vertically – making AC power cord isolation easier as well. And for the ultimate “Spinal Tap” moment, imagine how cool a pair of Mac Pros would look side by side!
