    Hi, just wanted to say why I waited so long to get one of these for my iBook is not clear anymore :eek: I should've bought one when I bought my iBook because this is great for my needs (using a new 6x8 Wacom tablet) it opened up a good amount of space, well raised it anyway, which makes things nice on such a small desk. If anyone is thinking of getting one I would, now I must get a wireless mouse :D

    Yup. I love my iCurve, too. Keyboard tucks nicely underneath and out of the way when not using it. Stable and solid. Not a single slip or mishap in the year I've had it.

    Yeah I have one too, but with a PC laptop on it. It's definitely not very secure with the laptop on it, but it works. I think they're better for iBooks/PBs, which is what they're made for! Very nice looking product though, I have one complaint. In the photos, they don't show the rubber feet, grippers, and GRIFFIN logo that is really on it.

    yeah, I may purchase one sometime. Still deciding if the $40 is worth it.

    I like the iBreeze alot better. Only problem is you can't tuck your stuff underneath it, but for the same price it cools it and one USB to plug in for all your USB devices.

    I LOVE my iCurve. Pricey? Maybe for what it is, but it certainly fixed my problem. After getting my powerbook the same week I was off work I had the worst neck strain I'd ever felt. It took about 2 weeks for it to feel better. I got the iCurve and WOW! It is not quite at eye level, but with lowering my chair just a bit, it works like a charm. Also, I tucked my Lacie under it. I have a USB hub so I did buy the wired apple keyboard recently. I had a logitech wireles usb, but I was no longer using the mouse since I use my mxlaser and the keyboard was looking old.
    Anyway, with the hub the keyboard wire isn't in my way. I think it'd look better without the wire, but I am not bothered much. I'll eventually upgrade for the bluetooth model I bet.

    I bought an icurve with my powerbook a few weeks ago. Its a great stand. The only thing that bothers me (this actually has more to do with the powerbook, though) is that all the cables come out of the sides of the powerbook instead of the back on my old Ti. This makes the whole thing look rather sloppy. But its something I've learned to live with. IMO the icurve is worth every penny!

    Hi, it's 4.5 inches to the bottom of my iBook from my desk and that seems plenty high enough for me :)
