I just got mine today and was impressed with the versitality of it. It not only will clamp to your iMac, but anywhere that has a ledge of about a couple inches in thickness. I had it mounted on my desk (looks freaking awesome) and then I mounted it on my night stand for when I got to bed for some hands free use for watching movies or something. The price is a little steep but your getting high quality from Twelve South along with a pretty sweet companion for your iPad 2. Highly recommended. …

Rock solid construction, I have my iPad now floating on the same eye-level to the screen of my MacBook, which itself is raised up Rock solid construction, I have my iPad now floating on the same eye-level to the screen of my MacBook, which itself is raised up off the desk on a stand to be more ergonomic. Didn't experience what other reviewers say as too flexible and not tight enough--perhaps the angle of my setup is a bit different as I have it mounted from the back ledge of my desk. I can freely rotate and adjust my iPad to any infinitesimal variation of angle I want, and I simply tightened the ball-and-socket joint enough to the resistance/pressure level I wanted. When mounted, I keep my iPad plugged in and turned off auto-lock so the screen is always-on. And I love how they included these small cable clips to neatly tuck away the charging cable out of sight behind my iPad. Overall, a well thought out product. My coworkers are all envious of my "Minority Report" style setup. …

Not Worth It
Useless, in fact. Will not support the weight of an iPad when attached to an iMac stand.

The clamp consists of a solid aluminum build with a heavy hex bolt to tighten. The clamp has extreme The clamp consists of a solid aluminum build with a heavy hex bolt to tighten. The clamp has extremely grippy durable silicone pads that help it stick to the desk/other.
I think the most likely event should a child knock into it would be the arm bends, the threads between the clamp and arm loosen slightly making the arm swing out/in or the iPad just wobbles. …

Hope that helps. …
