This Luxo iMac is living out its retirement as an elegant iPad stand.

Flickr user Rusty took his dear, departed 700MHz Flat Panel iMac and then spent a little of that trial and error time all DIYers know to mold the acrylic holder to the arm. (The first few tries, he notes, shattered or “bent weird.”) Then he added a pair of speakers into the base and a bluetooth keyboard.

This stand could pair very nicely with the Luxo lamp, or the iPad Mac Classic stand for an office space filled with retro repurposing.
