Kickstarter Find: UNITI Stand for iMacs and monitors

There’s a right height for your monitor, and your iMac or Cinema Display may not be at it.

I’ve used and reviewed a few here at AppleTell, most of which concerned themselves with either looked good sitting under Apple products or with providing additional functionality. The UNITI Stand, now on Kickstarter, seems concerned with both.

Rumor: iMac update coming next week

We’ve seen a few rumors about the possibility of an updated iMac with Retina display. Some signs of the machine were even found in the OS X Yosemite, but nothing is confirmed when it comes to Apple products until it comes from the company itself.

Satechi F1 Smart Monitor Stand review

I’m big on the proper placement of a monitor.
