Satechi’s Aluminum Monitor Stand ($40) is a wide stand that can accommodate a MacBook or a Mac monitor. The one-piece stand is designed to elevate a monitor for a more comfortable viewing angle. In doing so, it also clears desk space, leaving an empty area below the monitor that can be used to store cables, a keyboard, or other items. Satechi’s stand comes in three “Apple colors”: gold, silver, and space gray. The gold edition is pictured here.
Aluminum Monitor Stand is a sturdy item, made of an aluminum alloy, and it’s built to support devices weighing up to 31 pounds. For those concerned about scratching another surface with the completely aluminum stand, eight small 3M stickers are included, which can act as protective feet for the stand. Satechi’s stand fits the Apple aesthetic, and though it only elevates a monitor less than 2 extra inches, some may still find it to be a fitting work space solution.
