mBase for iMac – Review

On April 6, 2015, in iMac, Review, Stand, by Curt Blanchard

mBase for iMac
Manufacturer: Rain Design
MSRP: $69.90 ($59.50 for 21.5” iMac)
27” version
21.5” version

mBase is a rock-solid, two-inch stand that is exactly the shape of the iMac’s foot. There is an mBase available for both iMac sizes. The sandblasted and anodized aluminum finish matches the iMac and looks like an accessory by Apple. As a bonus, I find that raising my iMac this way puts it at a surprisingly comfortable viewing/working height.


The Rain Design catalog is not large, but every product they make is designed to precisely match and accessorize Apple products. There are very few manufacturers that succeed in engineering their products with Apple’s design aesthetic in mind. Rain Design gets it. mBase is an excellent example.

Elisa, Guy, Julie, and Vicky get together at the end of the day. Tired and sore, but sitting down to talk about their experiences at Macworld 2013. It’s been an interesting show so far. Ashton Kutcher does an exclusive interview (no he doesn’t) to talk about his feelings (as if) about life, acting, and his love for the MyMac website (PLEASE don’t really believe this is true). Lots of vendor interviews from the floor but the real gem in this podcast is Ashton (someone please check Guy’s medications).
