Nice to see accessories made specifically for the iMac.

I personally have no shame. I taped a 2.5" drive enclosure with an SSD for a boot drive to the back of my iMac. The back of my iMac isn't visible so it worked for me. If it was exposed I'd definitely look at a solution like the one above. I bought an iMac to avoid desk clutter.

I'm not familiar with the company, but that's a neat design.

Velcro also works well for this sort of add-on.

Yeah, that's kinda a neat product.

Twelve South makes a little product called the BackPack that is a shelf for the iMac and Thunderbolt Display. You can put a lot of things (hard drives, phones, keyboards) on it. Not to mention MacBooks or a Mac mini. It's a little on the expensive side, but another option. Well, beyond just using Velcro or tape. I had a little 2.5" hard drive Velcroed to the back of my Dell monitor for the longest time. Did the job just fine. It also absorbed some of the noise and vibration from the spinning disk.

Smile yup, I agree. I have rolls of industrial Velcro, I just did it quick and dirty, so I could get it off the desk.
