The design of Apple’s recently replaced G4-based iMacs made it extremely easy to adjust the position of the LCD display for optimal viewing as you moved around in your chair or conferred with someone else about something on the screen. The new iMac G5, sleek and iPod-like though it is, lacks much of that adjustability, since the screen can only tilt up and down through 30 degrees of motion. For any kind of side-to-side, forward-and-back, or rotational adjustment, you must move the entire iMac, which isn’t necessarily an easy task, given that it weighs in at either 18.5 pounds (8.5 kg) for the 17-inch model or 25.2 pounds (11.4 kg) for the 20-inch model. The same problem affects Apple’s current aluminum Cinema Displays, which weigh between 14.5 pounds (6.6 kg) and 27.5 pounds (12.5 kg).
If you find yourself frustrated whenever you want to adjust the position of your iMac G5 or Apple Cinema Display, or if you just like to push it out of the way at times, check out the iMove from MaxUpgrades. The iMove positioning table is a thin black base with durable plastic rollers, onto which your iMac or Cinema Display fits perfectly. It raises the iMac or display by only an inch, so stability isn’t compromised, and the rollers provide complete freedom of movement around your desk with minimal effort. The base of the iMac or display fits flush into the iMove, providing a flat surface for holding a keyboard out of the way as well.
