    I'm seriously considering getting a rain design stand for my mom in the philippines. However, I noticed that most of their stands, especially the boxes used to package them, is kind of huge as seen in this youtube video:



    So buying this thing in the united states to deliver it to my parents in the philippines is really going to inconvenience the person carrying it since luggage space is a premium. I checked lazada and PowerMac and they don't seem to have it, so I'm wondering if there's other stores out there in the philippines that might have it in stock that I don't know about.

    Worst case scenario is just going with plan A of buying the thing over here and having my brother lug the thing with him all the way over there.

    ^Does it really have to be an M-Stand? - if not, there are lots of options locally.

    Have never seen this locally. I have one, and I had my friend bring it over. Took up half his luggage space. :p

    But they do have alternatives in Power Mac/ Beyond the Box. I saw the HiRise just the other day.

    I bought mine from Amazon and shipped through MyShippingBox. It was worth it, for posture and desk organization. I opted to get the mStand for its solid reviews. It seems common that other models/brands are unstable and tends to fall once you install the MacBook.

    Ended up buying here in Singapore instead since I am currently based here. I asked the distributor there through their FB account how much their SRP is. It should be competitive with the SRP here but I'm not sure whether the retailers will strictly following the price they gave me.
