Oh wow. USD45 for something that can be designed in minutes and then 3d printed for less than USD1. And I can make it bespoke to whatever I need. WHAT A RIPOFF!

I have the original and it is surprisingly useful to have a solid shelf back there.

It's nice to have a plant sitting on your iMac, every time you water it — you're living on the edge :)
