these days, desktop real estate is like our real life real estate: they are scarce. so what do you do with limited space? you go skyward, that’s what you do. case in point, the Twelve South HiRise for iMac is a beautiful aluminum height-adjustable stand that will let you rise your iMac up while adding one or two discreetly hidden shelf to store your small items such as external hard drives, wallet, keys, USB flash drives or whatever. so do we really need to elevate our iMac? why not? at least now we can now see eye-to-eye with iMac and believe us, that’s a pretty good news for taller folks now that they can actually align their iMacs to their eye-level. other key features include an internal metal support shelf that allows you to adjust your iMac to one of the six internal positions, perforated front and back metal faceplates offers pass-through ventilation, magnetically-held front faceplate for quick, easy access to your stored items (it can be permanently screwed on if you choose to), and a pair of teflon rails on the bottom of the HiRise protects the surface under the stand from scratches. oh, did we mention that it can even fit a Mac mini in there? sweet. thumbs up for Twelve South for coming up with such a brilliant idea, yet again. the HiRise supports all iMac and Apple Displays with the L-shaped base, including the huge 27-inch Apple iMac and Apple Thunderbolt Display. the Twelve South HiRise for iMac is now up for grab with a price tag of $79.90. hit the jump for a few more look and a installation guide video for a better idea of how it works. no, really. from the images, you can’t really tell that it is not part of the iMac and the video below will certainly give you a better idea.
