With any Apple product, you get what you pay for – which is the minimum. But this does not stop us from buying their products, nor does it take away from the need for a complete and efficient work station.
The right stuff will take your iMac and home office space to the next level. There are tons of things you did not know you needed until now. See our list of what you are missing.
Satechi USB-C Clamp Hub
This excellent Satechi hub is designed to be pressed under your iMac so that you have all the necessary connections without taking up any extra desk space. It is specifically designed to work with Thunderbolt 3 and includes USB-C, three USB-A 3.0 ports and SD and microSD card readers. In addition, the design is designed to match the style of its iMac with an aluminum finish (available in space gray and silver).
If you are upset about how hard the back-panel ports on your iMac are, these solutions fix that problem and do a lot more, making it an easy recommendation for those who often use their iMac Use.
Twelve South Magicbridge
There are plenty of keyboards you can choose from that have great features and Mac compatibility. However, if you already have Apple’s Magic Keyboard and Magic Trackpad and want to take them to the next level, this clever little tray is perfect. This allows you to connect the Apple Magic Trackpad (more on these below) to either the right or left of the Apple Magic Keyboard in a seamless arrangement.
As long as you have both accessories, you can connect them so that they work together seamlessly. This is great if you prefer to keep your keyboard on your lap or to keep your desk setup a little clearer.
Apple Magic Trackpad 2
The shape of the Magic Mouse means that it is not to everyone’s taste. The Magic Trackpad 2, however, is excellent. This is a vast improvement over the original trackpad that comes with a slimmer design, greater durability, a larger surface area, and better sensors. If you are familiar with MacBooks then this is a must.
You can set this trackpad to work well with the iMac’s large screen fast and with responsiveness. This trackpad is a great solution for those who want to avoid some wrist problems involving mice, or if you simply prefer to use gestures in MacOS.
Logitech MX Master 3 Wireless Mouse
On the other hand, some users require a mouse for their computer activities. While there are plenty of great mice to choose from, this Logitech model is on top. It has a comfortable ergonomic design and a rechargeable battery that can last up to 70 days on a single charge. Especially added the light gray version with the iMac setup.
The auto-shift scroll wheel winds high-speed scrolling and a maneuver. The mouse is designed to work on any surface, including glass, so a mousepad is not needed at all. If you work on multiple computers simultaneously, you can also program the mouse to interact between them. As we said in our review, it is a “near-perfect” mouse.
Satechi Aluminum Monitor Stand Hub
The iMac doesn’t really have any adjustment options when it comes to things like height. If you want the iMac to be higher for better visibility, then you have to take a stand to plant it. Of all the stands, we particularly like the Satechi model. It has a beautiful aluminum design that matches the iMac, and includes smooth ports built directly to the front, so it can also act as a hub.
This model includes an audio jack, USB 3.0 port, USB-C port and SD / Micro SD port on the stand. If you need to use older USB devices then a USB adapter is included.
Twelve south iMac stand
If you’re looking for something more unique, Twelve South has an excellent iMac stand that includes a cubehole for built-in storage. Once the stand is attached, you can pop the front panel to find two small shelves for storage – ideal for wallets, phones, airpods, or anything else you want to keep out of the way. You can also run a USB hub from the back of the iMac through the back of the stand. This means that you can quickly access the ports without the mess of cords at your desk.
The encapsulating stand is also adjustable, you can extend your iMac up to four inches if necessary. You can choose between walnut or gunmetal for outline.
Vivo Adapter VESA Mount Kit
Newer versions of iMac are generally easier to mount for walls than older versions. However, this Vivo VESA mount in particular comes with an adapter kit, meaning that you can use it for an iMac model between late 2009 and current versions, which should cover just about all.
If you are in a situation where you really need your wall mounted iMac instead of freestanding, this is your best option. Everything you need for mounting is included, and the steel hardware is designed specifically for the iMac.
Western Digital 6 TB My Book External Hard Drive
If you need an external hard drive specifically for your iMac, then you probably need some serious and reliable storage. This 6TB WD drive fits perfectly. This includes both compatibility with Western digital backup software and time machines to ensure that your data remains secure.
Password protection that includes hardware-based encryption is also included for additional security levels. While the drive is designed to work with USB 3.0, it can also accommodate USB 2.0 connections if necessary. If your professional stuff requires even more room, you can get the same drive model up to 20GB, although this will also increase the price.
Logitech Z623 2.1 Speaker System
Your iMac also deserves some of the best sound. While iMacs have good speakers, you may need some backup if you really want to jam on your desk.
If you are shopping for a new speaker system for your computer, this Logitech model makes a remarkable sound for its price, thanks to the THX-certified 2.1 speaker system with a heavier subwoofer (designed for placement under your desk Done), included. The speakers offer 200 watt RMS / 400 watt peak performance. There are also RCA and 3.5mm inputs for connecting other devices.
Twelve South Hidden Shelf “Backpack” for iMac
If your iMac enjoys an open desk arrangement, you can look for some additional storage space. This small mount attaches to the back of your iMac to form a small shelf. It is ideal storage for external hard drives, wireless charging pads, MacBook or iPhone charging etc. The shelf can hold up to 3.5 pounds.
Yilador Webcam Cover Pack
Hackers have found webcam attacks attractive if they can take a remote control of the webcam, turn it on, and record unwanted (or at least when threatened). A simple webcam cover is the easiest and best way to prevent these attacks. Webcam covers on MacBooks can be tricky because they can interfere with shutting down the MacBook and also damage the screen, but fortunately, the iMac does not have this problem. This is why these Yilador webcam covers are such a great purchase. They provide inexpensive protection, and can easily slide back and forth when you are using your webcam.
IMac Kuzy Monitor Cover
If you depend on that beautiful iMac screen for your professional work, it is important to preserve it even when you are not using it – especially if it is not absolutely safe from spills or damage to the home.
This Kuzy monitor cover is designed to protect iMacs so that you don’t have to worry about it when away from the screen. It completely covers the front and sides of the computer with a thin, soft cloth that is machine washable and helps prevent dust, sunlight, moisture, fingerprints, scratches, and other problems. Also, you can insert it and close it in seconds.
Gator Case Creative Pro Tote Bag
Sometimes you may need to literally pack your iMac and take it with you for a particular project or transition. This is not ideal, but it happens. In this case, you would need such a tot bag, which uses adjustable padded nylon and a foam block cradle to secure the iMac, plus a rigid panel on the front of the bag to give the screen extra protection. Is stitched.
It is rain resistant, and the bottom is protected with both rubber feet and PVC. For maximum security, this is the best iMac bag you can find.
