The IKEA Fantastik Napkin Holder does the same job for $1.99 and looks quite elegant and maclike.
Now, we're finally spotting some examples of this creative reuse out in the wild.
First, twitter'er @burstaneurysm tweets a photo of his own Fantastik setup, holding up his black-cased MacBook Pro, exclaming "Way cheaper than the $50 BookArc."
Then, on IKEA Hackers, Chad Parrish shows off how he used the Fantastik napkin holder to stand up his MacBook Air. He added an Apple logo sticker to complete the look, plus a few pieces of adhesive backed foam to keep the holder from scratching his laptop.
What do you think? Would you ever use IKEA's Fantastik napkin holder as a laptop stand? Or would you rather spend out for the BookArc?
