If the crowd standing around the Ergotron booth at MacWorld each afternoon waiting for the drawings to give away free products is any indication, these guys make some pretty sought after items. I got to spend a little bit of time playing with the products in the Ergotron booth during MacWorld and two of them really caught my eye.
WorkFit-A, Sit-Stand Workstation
My favorite item at the Ergotron booth was the Workfit standing workstation. The model they had displayed worked with the Apple iMac or a computer using one of Apple's Thunderbolt displays. What really caught my eye about this workstation is that will work with a desk you already have. It has a heavy-duty clamp that secures to the back or side of your desk and then the adjustable arm allows you to instantly switch from a regular sitting desk to a standing desk. My wife and I built our main computer desk at home out of oak and the design of the desk hides the computer keyboard drawer and printer inside the desk so it doesn't look like a desk at all. This workstation from Ergotron would work really well with a nice piece of existing furniture you really like the look of but wish it had the function of a standing desk. But alas, my number didn't come up at MacWorld so instead of winning one I guess I will just have to save up my pennies...
Neo-Flex® Desk Mount Tablet Arm
The Neo-Flex Desk Mount Tablet Arm by Ergotron was the other product that really caught my attention. I have always wanted to get a really good iPad mount, but this mount puts all other iPad stands to shame. This is not a iPad/tablet mount for the faint of heart. This thing is solid! It kinda reminds me of something out of one of the Terminator movies...indestructable. This isn't a stand you are going to want to carry around with you, install it once and leave it there. But rest assured, once you put your precious tablet into this mount it is not going anywhere. This mount is fully rotatable and can extend and retract which allows you to put the iPad in any orientation or position you need it in.
