Aspire 1 Walnut Computer Stand for iMac and PC from Understands Review

If your desk is cluttered with cables and other knick-knacks that get in the way of your daily computing needs, then you should be in the market for a stand that can help you manage the mess. Understands, a sustainable computer stand maker, feels your pain, so they have crafted a wooden stand out of walnut, complete with a drawer and cable management, to help you clean up your work space with a bit of style and flair.

We were sent one of the company’s Aspire 1 wooden stands for iMacs and PCs, and it is a beautiful piece of finely crafted walnut. This thing is as durable as it gets, and should last me a lifetime unless I decide to use it for firewood. What’s even better is the fact that it cleaned up my workspace in less than 5-minutes thanks to the easy-to-install design. If you have an iMac, you can just slide its base right into the etched in slot, or if you have a PC monitor, you can just rest it on top, so installation is a breeze. The included drawer is also a nice touch because it allows you to hide more clutter from your desk, as well as store cables thanks to the built-in cable management system.

This is truly a great computer stand, which is also sustainable and should last a lifetime. It really adds a refined feeling to your desk. You can check out a video review below to see the stand in all of its walnut glory. If you’re interested in picking one up, they retail for $99 and can be ordered directly from Understands below.
