MacMice Workspace Products Co. has released the iPerch, a clear acrylic desk stand for PowerBooks and iBooks.
The US$39.95 iPerch is built to provide a stand that's sturdy enough to type directly on the PowerBook or iBook without a keyboard and mouse. It can handle all models of Apple laptops, including the new 17-inch PB. It's made from 3/8th-inch thick acrylic sheet. Your notebook is held in place by soft, gummy clear plastic pads that are on the top surface of the iPerch.
"The iPerch is hand fabricated, one at a time in Tennessee, using U.S.-made Acrylite brand acrylic sheet," MacMice CEO Jack Campbell said. "The bends are hand formed, using a slow heat bending system that puts less internal stresses inside the product than mass production heating systems create. This means the iPerch is much less likely to crack or shatter in the future."
