For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Understands to give MacRumors readers a chance to win one of several "Baxter" storage solutions for the iMac.

Currently available through a Kickstarter project that launched this week, Baxter is a series of rear-mounted storage options designed to add more storage space to your iMac.

There are several different Baxter configurations, each of which is made from a lightweight laminated birch wood and mounts to the back of an iMac. Every one of the Baxters is available with metallic paint, a walnut veneer, a stock image, or a custom print at varying price points. Configurations and starting price points are as follows:

  • Nigel Baxter ($45) - A single shelf for the rear of the iMac, able to hold a few accessories.
  • Shira Baxter ($45) - A six-shelf arrangement that's designed to hold hard drives or other small accessories.
  • Mary Baxter ($45) - Two wide shelves that can hold twice as much as the Nigel.
  • Joe Baxter ($55) - Two shelves like the Mary Baxter, with 8 cable wraps for keeping your cords organized.
  • Art Baxter ($75) - A customized backing for the iMac that does not include any shelves.

All of the Baxter prices listed above are entry level. Customization and walnut veneer are more expensive, but for those who have access to a laser machine or who are crafty, there are options to buy raw design files or a DIY kit at much lower prices. Design schematics can be purchased for as little as $2, while DIY kit pricing starts at $20.

Baxter storage solutions fit onto the back of iMacs with no tools or adjustments required, and they are compatible with both 21.5 and 27-inch iMac models. Understands says they've been manufactured to add stability to the Mac, so the weight of accessories should not be a problem.

Who wouldn't want to make their beautifully-uncluttered iMac look like an over-utilized I.T. closet shelf?

At 1.26 inches in diameter, AirTags are able to fit easily on a dog's collar, but that size also makes the tracking devices small enough to swallow, at least for a medium to large-sized dog, and ...
