Rain Design’s mBase Keeps Your External Drive Cool And Within Reach

Rain Design has recently released the mBase for iMac, a simple iMac stand that gives you quick and easy access to your favorite external hard drive. The stand has a built-in vented drawer that is large enough to hold most portable hard-drives while keeping them at an optimal temperature.

Additionally, the drawer has a passthrough for your drive’s USB, Firewire, or Thunderbolt cable, making for a clean look.


Aside from just holding your hard drive, the mBase gives your iMac a 2-inch height elevation for upright ergonomics. Even with this rise, the mBase looks natural as it’s made from an aluminum that’s colored the same as your iMac.

The mBase is available for purchase now starting at $49.90.
