This guy is rich and broke at the same time
How cool would it be if they made smaller, portable computers
Why do people do weird shit in coffee shops?
If that’s anything like the hangars I buy, the neck will violently snap off any second now
Bet he only paid 500 for it
I think this is at Toasted in Dallas if anyone wants to try to steal the Bart painting.
How is no one talking about that awesome Bart Simpson painting?
Modern problems need modern solutions
Why would someone carry an iMac into a coffee shop. That’s a lot of work to show off your apple products.
Two minutes later...
Snap! Splat! Ah my computer!
So are apple monitors not vesa standard? How hard can it be to attach 4 screws to any surface at all.
I once saw a guy using a MacBook Pro as a stand for his Surface Pro.
Do people really go to Starbucks with a whole ass desktop?
WHO THE FUCK CARRIES THAT KIND OF SHIT AROUND?
If fell ~ " The risk I took was calculated, but man, am I bad at math. "
If sustain ~ " If It's Stupid But It Works It's Not Stupid "
That Bart pop art hanging in the background though...
"We are Legion, man"
You'd think we'ed be just 3d printing these stands by now
This is about as stable as my ex wife.
I love the sheer ingenuity and cheapness but having had those hangers shatter into a hundred pieces just by glancing at them I don't think I would risk it.
Haha screw Apple, right?

Brilliant. You could 3D print a slightly more reliable one for like 0.99
I bet at home his wind-breaker is hanging loosely on a $999 Apple stand.
This man has a lot of trust in that hanger.
who the fuck takes their desk top to Starbucks?
ITT: People who don’t realize this is just a normal iMac with a VESA mount.
What’s up with people bringing their whole offices into coffee shops?
Looks like Michael Cohen
Introducing The iStand Aero, made from a light weight polymer and with a new sleek design, perfect for travelers, out now for only $1999
Tbh i would get nervous if my if i had an i mac pro that would cost me like 8 k Like what if it slips then were gonna have a ltt situation
Why don't people just stay at home and do this? Generally curious why the fucking coffee shop is less distracting then working at home or in a library.
Perhaps he is apple worker just using prototype of next stand, to be sold for just 499$.
Imagine lugging the thing into a coffee shop just to show off to ppl you got $$, but not $$$
Gotta love the 25cent plastic hanger. They will last a decade or more. As for being a computer stand... why the fuck not?!
I know I'm not old but I feel so goddamn old right now. Is this a "laptop" that needs a stand or a separate monitor and keyboard? I just don't get the Apple stand thing. It seems like a joke to my plebeian brain.
doesn't even make any sense to bring such a huge ass computer into a coffee shop. so bulky.
That's great but why he's bringing desktop to the coffee shop.
ITT: people not knowing the difference between an iMac and an unreleased monitor. Also, maybe it's the only machine he has, and his internet is out, maybe he bought it secondhand and doesn't have the stand
Why do people do this?
The photo is not of the new monitor. It looks like it could be an iMac with the optional VESA adaptor installed instead of the desk stand that it comes with. The hanger hack seems like a clever way to avoid having to reattach the original stand which would be a hassle and also awkward and heavy to transport.
The new Pro monitor isn't in the wild yet. No one has done an in-depth analysis of the $999 stand as far as I know, but I think that one reason for its expense is that the adjustable linkage is quite complex and assembled with great precision to allow effortless infinite repositioning with no backlash or slippage. Despite all the initial criticism and ridicule, I suspect that anyone who actually tries the stand will covet it. However because it is luxury priced, many will end up making due the less expensive VESA adaptor and a third party support of some sort.
When your company computer is an iMac but they won't reimburse you for a stand.
It doesn't come with a stand?
Wait, $999, that's not a typo? What does the dang thing do?
