Rating: 5/5 An Elegant piece of Desk Art October 15, 2017 I have an old 2007/8 Mac Mini it generally takes up a lot of space on my desk and lays flat.

I was browsing and saw an Acrylic side stand for a mor modern 2010 Mac mini and wonder if they still had one for an older 'chunkier' Mac. They did and this was that purchase.

The Acrylic makes it ressemble a Mac Cube from back in the day and suffusely defuses the overhead desktlamp light to literally make it (glow). Slots on the front make the Super Disc accesible, and there are two vertical slots , one for Lefties and Righties.. so if you want to turn the Apple Logo side to the Left or Right you can. And if power cords or something on the back demands one or the other sideways orientation, you can. There is plenty of air space for releaving pent up heat, in fact it acts as a bit of a heat sink itself spreading the heat over a slightly larger surface area. The back is wide open so access to ports is not a problem. The Mac itself is (suspended) in the center of two panels on either side that act as front to back "legs" for the asembly. The sides have tiny crystal clear "rubber feat" so it stays put and doesn't slide around on the desktop. The immediate top and bottom of the encopanssing Acrylic wrap around the Mac have large symmetrical "Vents" to allow heat to disperse through two vents on top of the back or two vents on the bottom of the Mac. THis works well since the bottom of the Mac was its primary exhaust with vents all aound its solid white rubber base.. these are not obstructed. Ikea its not, putting it together was basically taking it out of the shipping box (a very nice tight box by the way) and inserting the Mac. I didn't even have to turn it off or disconnect the cables. And suddenly an Angelic form appears on my desk and frees up additional inches for other clutter.

I would recommend this item to a friend!
