The Upside Down Mac

The Upside Down Mac

One of the benefits of having an all-in-one computer is how easily it can be tucked into spaces without an excess of cords and clutter. Today’s kitchen workspace demonstrates that quite effectively.

Lifehacker reader Kurt emailed in a fantastic little kitchen setup. Kurt had an iMac G5 on hand, and a great idea for turning a desk in his kitchen into a workspace. The design is extremely simple thanks to the all-in-one design of the iMac. He drilled a hole in the stand, a hole in the bottom of one of his cabinets, and then he mated the two together with a sturdy bolt. The only hardware tweaking necessary was a wood shim between the base and the cabinet to make it completely wobble-free and trip into his system settings to rotate the screen orientation.

    The photo clearly shows the mac is still the right way up – the screen has not been rotated.
    I’d guess the stand has been removed and reattached upside down.
