Another hidden peripheral holder, $2.49 at Harbor Freight. And I think that was for a pack of 5.

You're asking Apple people... people who will set a clock to get up at 3am trying to be "first"? People who would historically camp out for upwards of many hours or days so they can be among the first to buy something that is only slightly faster or slightly upgraded from almost the exact same thing they already own? ;)
I guess I'm still holding on to an outdated definition of "Apple people." Twenty years ago, it was something of a trope that Macintosh users were, on average, more educated than their Windows PC counterparts (ergo, they might not be so easily led). Apple wasn't high fashion, it was functional. I keep forgetting that's no longer the case. :rolleyes:

The arc and the backpack look like nice additions for tidying up your workspace. I use a MBP but if I had an iMac I'd definitely want those. For me personally, it's pleasant to keep the work area as minimalist as possible.

Surprising how useful the Arc actually is. Apart from preventing you from putting your laptop flat down when not in use and inevitably putting things on top of it - books, paper, drinks, kids...it also makes it easier to pick the laptop up

The leaders of the tech industry in Silicon Valley and SF all use Macs because they're the best for work.
Strangely enough, Jim Zemlin actually uses macOS.

A computer able to run most of the programs people need. Might need a new CD drive.
Or maybe a Blu-Ray drive.

I’d get the backpack for the 27” imac but since the lcd on it broke and there is a $50 monitor sitting in front of the imac, it’s probably moot. So much for quality when your 2 year old $1800 imac poops out...
Yeah, that's why I prefer desktops which don't have built-in displays. It's a novel idea, but it's not very practical if something breaks.
