Apple accessory maker extraordinaire NewerTech has unveiled a couple new accessories that are used to hold some of your cool Apple gear for easier use. Both of the products are new stands called the NuStand Alloy. It is offered in a version specifically for the iPad and a version for the Mac mini as well. Both of the stands are made from aircraft grade aluminum.
The iPad version of the stand will hold the iPad vertically or horizontally and has a rubberized black finish that is soft to the touch and scratch resistant. I would assume that rubbery finishes is an effort to prevent scratches since you will likely be pulling the iPad out of the stand frequently. The stand holds the iPad at a 15-degree angle for comfortable use and weighs only 3.5 ounces. You can order it now for $24.99.
The NuStand Alloy for the Mac mini is the same weight and works with the 2010 version of the Mac mini only. It also has a rubberized finish to prevent scratched and has a silicone center to securely hold the mini. Both of the stands have rubber feet to prevent skidding and more. The Mac mini version of the stand is also $24.99.
