For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Satechi to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win a Type-C Aluminum Monitor Stand Hub designed for the iMac or the iMac Pro.
Priced at $89.99, Satechi's USB-C iMac Hub raises the foot of the iMac to what Satechi says is an optimal viewing angle and adds an array of useful easy-access ports. It includes three 5Gb/s USB-A ports, a 5Gb/s USB-C data port, an SD card slot, an audio jack, and a micro SD card slot.
iMacs don't suffer from the same lack of ports as Apple's notebooks, but all iMac ports are located on the back of the machine, which is not always convenient. The iMac Hub puts them right within reach and adds additional ports for you to use.
It's quite a bit easier to use an SD card slot on the front of the iMac than on the back, which will make this hub worth it for photographers, drone operators, and others who often need to access SD and micro SD cards. Make sure to check out the review we did on Satechi's USB-C iMac Hub for a closer look at the ports and how it performs in day to day use.
Available in either silver or space gray aluminum, the iMac Hub has been designed to match well with Apple's iMac lineup. The Hub is designed to plug in to one of the four available USB-C ports on modern Macs, though it is also compatible with older Macs using an included USB-A to USB-C adapter. It has a short cable, which prevents cord mess.
The iMac Hub raises the iMac up 1.63 inches, and while it's not adjustable, Satechi says that this cuts down on neck strain and encourages better posture.
