    Wait, What?

    Just because you can do a thing, doesn't mean you should do a thing.

    How is it a fail? thou it's ugly looking it does give iMac owners with dual displays an option to level the screens.

    Based on watching a couple of videos it looks like it's prone to vibrate and jiggle.

    Twelve South usually makes some pretty attractive stuff, but this is such a major fail :eek: It totally ruins the sleek lines of the computer, imo.

    Looks like a mini Mac Pro on its side. Actually, they borrowed the case design for the 2013 Mac Pro iOS.

    Not a fail

    I think it's more of a fail that Apple didn't make the thunderbolt display the same height as the iMac, it's 2 inches too short!!! This is the perfect solution. My secondary TB display has been sitting on a stack of books for a year to level it with my iMac. This will be much better.

    The iMac is already way to high so why would I want to make it higher? isnt it just a box??

    I'm releasing a competing product soon. It's called the wūd.

    http://www.storiesbyme.com/userfiles/image/blocks/3in_wood_blocks.jpg

    It costs $69.99, so I'm really going for affordability here.

    Really though, I personally don't see why the HiRise is $80. I'd be in for one for like $20 maybe, otherwise I'll just stick with my wood innovation.

    I really don't understand this product and the amount of media attention it has gotten. It ruins the looks of the iMac while only raising the iMac to an uncomfortable height. Of well, maybe someone likes an higher iMac, then I can understand. But that has to be very few people.

    Nice... ;) Put an apple logo on your product and a few suckers will bite for sure...

    One nice thing about it is that it can raise the Apple Thunderbolt / Cinema Display to be at the same height as the iMac.
