What are the ideal Sockle dimensions?

I created the SOCKLE for my Apple MacBook Pro Retina 13″, so let’s just stick with MacBooks for the moment:

TypeWxH (mm/inch)WeightPorts
2017 MacBook Pro 15"348x241mm (13.7" x 0.5")1.83 kg (4 lbs)4 x USB-C
(= Thunderbolt3)
2017 MacBook Pro 13"304x212mm (12.0" x 8.4")1.37 kg (3 lbs)2 or 4 x USB-C
(= Thunderbolt3)
2017 MacBook Air 13"325x227mm (12.8" x 8.9")1.35 kg (3 lbs)2 x USB3
1 x Thunderbolt2
2016 Macbook 12"280x196mm (11.0" x 7.7")0.92 kg (2 lbs)1 x USB-C
2015 Macbook Pro 15"359x247mm (14.1" x 9.7")2.04 kg (4.5 lbs)2 x USB3
2 x Thunderbolt2
2015 Macbook Pro 13"314x219mm (12.3" x 8.6")1.58 kg (3.5 lbs)2 x USB3
2 x Thunderbolt2

In my case, my laptop is 314mm x 219mm, and I constructed my Sockle Beta 2 out of 2 bamboo serving trays that are 320mm x 240mm, which was close enough.
