Sometimes the simplest things are the best. A pen and paper for writing shopping lists. A broom instead of a Roomba. An Aeropress instead of a crappy K-cup. And now, a Lifta iMac stand instead of, uh, more complicated iMac stands.
It’s a chunk of wood, and that’s it. But it raises your iMac to a more comfortable eye-level, and gives you space to stow a keyboard underneath. Not that storing a keyboard is that hard with a naked iMac – you just put it on top of the slimline foot.
Those extra inches can make all the difference, though. And if you have an unfinished wooden desk (which my coincidence I do) then the Lifta will all but disappear visually.
Simplicity doesn’t always comes cheap though. The Lifta costs $125. Choose between Baltic birch plywood (with the veneers running vertically), oak or ash. Available now, or use the Easter weekend to make your own.
