Pricey Aluminum Brick Fixes Your iMac’s Greatest Shortcoming

Pricey Aluminum Brick Fixes Your iMac’s Greatest Shortcoming

Remember the Elevation Dock? Yeah, me too. The Kickstarter took so long to ship that everybody who’d ordered one had upgraded to the iPhone 5 by the time the dock shipped, so they needed adapters to make them fit their new phones.

Still, that won’t happen with the new Elevation Stand, which is a simple $100 aluminum brick that adds a few inches to the height of your iMac.

Pricey Aluminum Brick Fixes Your iMac’s Greatest Shortcoming

The iMac is too low to use comfortably. I have the old fat version and I love it, but I’d love it more if the screen were a little higher. The Elevation Stand fixes that problem. It’s a sturdy aluminum loop that’s been extruded using a 90-million-pound press, and has nano-suction pads on the top so it stays stuck to your iMac’s foot.

As a solution its elegant and likely unbreakable. But it has one problem – there’s nowhere to stow a keyboard. What I like most about the iMac’s foot is that I can slide my keyboard under my Mac and the foot never gets in the way. And while you could shove a keyboard into the hole in the side, it’s hardly convenient.

So there it is: a beautiful stand that raises your iMac 66mm (around 2.6 inches) and costs $99 (or $59 for early bird Kickstarterers). That’s $1.50 per millimeter, or $38 per inch.

    50¢ Never wears out. Old-world style. Hand-tumbled for weathered look. Only 35¢ for early bird Kickstarterers or tradesmen.
