If you’re tired of having to reach behind your iMac to access ports, the US$89.99 Satechi Type-C Aluminum Monitor Stand Hub for iMac is just what you’re looking for. It features seven built-in ports and an ergonomic design.

On the iMacs (for the sake of design and style I guess) all the ports are on the back, out of easy reach. The Type-C Aluminum Monitor Stand Hub makes the most-used ports easily accessible.

Not only does this Stand Hub elevate your computer, but also your workspace, as it’s available in a sleek design. Its ergonomic design raises your monitor screen to a comfortable viewing height to help to reduce neck strain and encourage better posture.

It’s also very functional, allowing access to peripherals via USB 3.0 data ports (three), USB-C data port (one), micro/SD card slots, and audio jack. (The folks at Satechi say you should only connect one bus-powered device at a time.)

The Type-C Aluminum Monitor Stand Hub is available at Satechi.net comes in two colorways: Space Gray and Silver. My one complaint is that I wish it came in colors to match the hues of the 24-inch iMac. I’d love a blue one with my blue all-in-one.
