    I have 20" I think cinema display here at work and my neck and shoulders are not doing too well because the display is too low. Are there any good stands I can get to raise it? Any suggestions? Thanks.

    You could get the VESA mount adapter kit from apple, this would allow you to replace the stand with a height adjustable one.

    it all depends on how high you need to go. Macnessity makes some really cool aluminum stands that you can slide your keyboard under it when not in use or even a laptop.

    I'm thinking over getting one for my MBP, but I'm still determining if I want to use it open as a second monitor. :)

    Check them out...very cool.

    That won't work because this is the older plastic one with 3 feet, not the newer aluminum model.

    Three books.

    There's no VESA mounting option for the ACD Displays so the only way to raise it higher is to raise whatever it is on. Most of the stands available retail are for displays with a single central stand so you'll be hard pressed finding anything suitable for the full width of your display's legs.

    In which case you're best bet is to get a shelf and some cupboard feet from somewhere like ikea. That will allow you to put the acd on a higher setting.
