If you are the kind of individual who goes out and spends hundreds and hundreds of dollars each year on devices like the iPhone and iPad, and also happen to own a Mac, then the chances are that you actually appreciate a little bit of luxury in your life. Say what you want about Apple as a company, but regardless of whether you love them or hate them, there are very few people who could comprehensively argue against the fact that their products are built of the highest standard and feel like premium items.
With every iPhone, iPad or Mac purchase comes the inevitable scouring of the internet for awesome accessories to compliment whichever device it is. The world wide web is literally loaded with companies which provides cases, stands and about everything else you can think of, but the Apple of the accessory world has to be TwelveSouth who make some truly beautiful and unique products that scream of quality. We reviewed the remarkable HoverBar from the company not so long ago, but this time the attention is focused on the update of their BackPack product for the iMac and Apple Cinema Displays.
BackPack, as the company is calling it, is as evolutionary upgrade to the already-existing BackPack product that is actually a neat and tidy little shelf that connects to the stand of an iMac or Cinema Display to allow certain items to be tucked away out of view. Made out of steel and perfectly fitting the aesthetics of Apple’s manufacturing, the BackPack is a great little piece of kit that probably provides a horizontal home for a practically unlimited number of items. The newly updated product comes with a built-in cable management system that makes the perfect accompaniment for those evil cables that clutter up the work space, as well as having the ability to be clipped onto the front or back of the iMac or display stand.
The immediate benefit that springs to mind with such a product is the ability to tuck away those intrusive external hard drives which sit on the desk. If you happen to have more money than sense, and own an iMac, as well as a MacBook Air, the BackPack even has adjustable clips which allows the Air to be conveniently stowed away until it is required. The second-generation model is retailing for £34.99 and fits all iMacs, Thunderbolt displays and Apple Cinema Displays.
