    If ever there was an object example of Apple's ethos of putting style before substance, the ACD stand is it. Are there any solutions to ACD height adjustment without compromising the design? Something which is compatible with both 23 and 30.

    An ethos further exemplified by the lack of adjustment on the iMac. The top of the 24" is so high that it's impossible to meet Apple's own ergonomic guidelines except with a bar stool.

    Nice things to have on your desk, aren't they? :)

    I wouldn't know... my little tiny 17" iMac is just the right height. I'd happily trade it to you for your 24" and a bar stool, though.

    I say wall-mount the ACD(s).

    How's the iSight on that 24"? Does it just show the very top of your head? :D

    Wall-mount & clamp stand not the best options.


    I've just had a brainwave. Height adjustable stand with no moving parts. Must try some experiments during the w/end. even then would appreciate stand options.

    Well, in an emergency it can be tilted...

    I think this is a good solution.

    I've also got it and tried this setup. Works quite well and doesn't look awful like most other solutions. You can buy it here ;)

    Ahhh. Okey... But how can the 23" be too high? Sitting in a lounge chair or something? I mean I am not a tall person, hence the name petite, and I even think the 23" might be a little higher up :confused:

    Maybe I would understand it with the 30".

    Couldn't you simply saw down the legs of your desk?

    It's the 24" iMac. The "chin" raises the screen to the same height as a 30".

    I prefer a more aural temporary stand. But surely crappy minds do think alike.

    Haha! That is so funny. Like seperated at birth! Is that really your setup?!?

    I should stress the fact that the setup with the book is not mine. I do have the same book (with a green cover) and tried this out... but it looked different since I have a tower connected to the ACD; not a laptop. But maybe I should connect my PowerBook to it and also put it on my iCurve - and I could join the club :D

    Yes, it is really the setup for the MBP. Currently the stylistic vibe it gives off is 50% Dell, 50% Apple. Since I surely have enough Dells lying around I would like to give this a 100% Apple vibe.
