that's hideous.

Yeah, it is pretty nasty.

I think it's pretty cool--although we're in the realm of art, aesthetics, and personal taste here.

I do think a USB hub would be more useful than FW, but even just as a stand I think it's kind of a neat design. Something that's bound to show up in some sci-fi show or corporate lobby on TV one of these days.

Good concept, not so attractive design, imo

Good idea but the design doesn't really move me that much.

looks, um, horrid?

zStand rating: B-

Design has potential, but it does not make one race out to purchase it.

At least it has enough FireWire ports. Problem is, it's only got 4 USB ports... Why not 7, they have the space for it!.

As for the design... While it's nice on its own, it doesn't fit with the usual Apple designs IMHO.

its functional, but yes clearly lacking in implemenation

Looks.... interesting.

If it weren't for the screen already there, I'd almost think that if someone were to but something heavy upon it, the stand whould fold and crush the mini. :p

Very interesting design. Wouldn't have any interest in purchasing though.
