Reclaimed Wood Stand Will Add Some Welcomed Warm To Your iMac

Depending on the height of your desk, an Apple iMac may or may not be of an idea height. Even if it is, the real estate under the unit is often rendered useless because of the height of the unit to the desk. The solution? A stand like this one here called Understands Reclaimed Wood Stand for iMac. As you can see, it is of real wood, which kind of add some warm to the otherwise cold, aluminum gadget. What makes this stand stands out is, it is crafted from reclaimed wood. Not just any wood, though; they are off wood salvaged from downed trees in local areas.

New Satechi USB Hub Puts Card Reader And Ports At The Front Of iMac Pro

In achieving the awesome looks, Apple did make some sacrifices on the iMac in terms of usability. I mean, a bunch of ports on the back is not exactly user-friendly, does it? No. It will never be no matter how you look at it. Luckily for the new iMac Pro, its Thunderbolt 3 ports are USB-C which takes the guess work out of which side is the right side. Still, guessing where the ports are is a game which I equate to carnival scam. It’s often a hit and miss thing – until you crane your neck around to the back and have a visual. While we don’t expect Apple’s design team to break the tradition and bring those ports to the front, you are not without options.

Fusion Stand: A Minimalistic Home for Your iMac, Apple Display and iPhone

Another solution to declutter your desktop comes from iForte. After pioneering the first all-in-one stand with integrated dock and charging system designed with iMac and iPhone in mind, the San Francisco outfit is back with Fusion Stand which takes ‘clean look’ to a whole new level. The Fusion Stand looks absolutely clean and minimalistic. It really is. In fact, we think it is as minimal as a display/iMac stand can get without sacrificing functionality. That said, Fusion stand might be a good starting point if you have been wanting to streamline your desk and never get to doing it. Designed for iMac and Apple Display, Fusion also boasts a matching but optional smartphone cradle, which magnetically attaches to the front of the stand.

Uniti Stand For iMac Marries Device Dock With A Stand For A True Clutter-free Desktop

if you are a iMac or Apple display user, owns at least one mobile device (who doesn’t?), and absolutely hate clutter, then the Uniti Stand for iMac might be the answer you have been looking for. designed and made in the U.S.A., the Uniti Stand marries an iMac stand crafted from aircraft-grade aluminum and smart device docks, while throwing in a 3.5mm headphone jack and a couple of USB ports along the way for some added convenience. the stand offers two ways of elevating your iMac or Apple Display: direct atop the stand which gives it around 2.36 inches (50 mm) of elevation or slot the ‘feet’ of your iMac into a purpose built slot for a seamless look. the stand itself also lets you route the usually hard-to-access 3.5mm headphone jack and a pair of USB 3.0 ports to the front for easy access, thus eliminating the frustration of fumbling blindly for the ports.

Bluelounge Jimi USB Port Extension For iMac

want to extend your awkward, rear-facing USB port to the front of your iMac, but don’t want the ‘perk’ of clutter at the base of your iMac? well, then we are guessing Jimi might be of an assistant. Jimi is not a person. Jimi is a “J” shaped USB extension designed specifically for 21″ and 27″ iMac (slim unibody – those with crazy thin edges). just plug the male connector of the USB extension to the port of your choice at the back of your iMac, align the bottom of the “J” and snaps it into the downward air vent of your iMac, and you got yourself a super cool front-facing USB port without cluttering the foot of your Mac. not sure if you can deploy more than one though, but we are guessing that blocking too many of the air vents is not cool (pun not intended). then again, one is what most people will ever need, so not having many shouldn’t be a biggie. an exceedingly simple idea, but we think it is a brilliant one, nonetheless. what’s your take? the Bluelounge Jimi USB Port Extension for iMac is available now for just $14.95 a pop. product video follows after the break.

iMacompanion Routes a USB Port To The Front

sometimes the simplest idea could be a life changer and the iMacompanion is one such example. by its product name, you are probably clueless about what it is. well, it is basically a well crafted product that directs one of your USB port to front. lets face it: though it is nice and neat to have USB ports located at the back of the iMac, it is no fun trying to access it and the truth is, we have at least one device that we would often use the USB port. with this in mind, Wiplabs decided that it is high time to route one to front and doing it elegantly. sure, there are countless USB hubs out in the wild that does the same, but what Wiplabs did with the iMacompanion is actually pretty amazing.

using your iPad 2 with your iMac seems like a good idea but one issue still persist: you can’t do it without straining your neck due to their difference in height and placing your iPad on top of a stack of books isn’t going to be a long term solution, not to mention that it is totally inelegant. the HoverBar by Twelve South is the answer to that woe. it is an adjustable arm that allows your iPad 2 to ‘float’ next (or above) your iMac or Apple Cinema Display. all you have to do is to install the HoverBar to the back of your iMac or Apple Display’s stand, clip your iPad 2 onto its holder and you are all set. though it is designed exclusively for your Mac, you can also choose to clamp the HoverBar on your kitchen shelving, table top and among the many other places – in short, you can use it almost anywhere as long the two-way clamp can fit.
