I have one of the originals, the stand is built like a tank. I no longer use it since I got my LaCie mini hard drive. You can't fit both underneath. Coincidentally the 20" Apple Cinema display fits perfectly on top of the mini. I have no issues with it blocking Bluetooth or wifi reception. I don't know if the steel stand causes issues as I had the original mini at the time and it did not have Bluetooth or wifi.

The nice things about the stand is you get to elevate your monitor a bit, while saving desk space. You have easy access to the cables, yet it hides them quite nicely.

I think this is a great product. The powered hub is a real nice bonus.

I almost sound like a spokesperson for the company Smile

I wouldn't mind having one to raise my display. I just wonder about it hurting Airport or Bluetooth reception with a piece of metal right above the antennas. Maybe that's a stretch though.

Perhaps it works like aluminum foil or a coat hanger Smile

It's a great idea and design. ...I'm big with branding/logo's though, and I prefer the Apple logo to be visible.

...I know, weird Smile

65 bucks is way too much for a monitor stand..

i agree, 65 is REALLY pushing it, especially spending so much for the mac itself, let alone buying the keyboard, and mouse. But none the less it is a VERY sleek looking stand, i would like to get it, but after i get a new desk top speakers. It wouldn't be number one on my list.
