Hi. I'm Scott Stein and hey, have you ever dreamed of keeping your iPad above your desk? Or maybe you want to turn your iPad into a computer. Maybe you wanna be some sort of stock day trader, keep another monitor next to all of your other computers. Well, the VersaStand could be that for you. This is not really that inventive of an idea but it's really turning your iPad into a monitor. Why have more companies done this? Maybe I've just not been looking in the right place. This is $79, which is really not that bad for a kind of IKEA furniture piece for your iPad. The VersaStand has a simple aluminum bendy frame that kinda feels like one of those adjustable desk lamps. And yes, it can rotate a full 360 degrees to portrait or a landscape mode. Even better is actually detaches from the stand and yes it's its own case. It's a hard back plastic case with a big aluminum ring on the back. This is smart cover compatible. So, you could use this and just go on the road. This is a little bit bulky on the side here but it's really nice that you can then pop that in and out when you get to work. And this stand is remarkably lightweight and folds really flat. This whole package could easily slide into a messenger bag or backpack and you could take it with you wherever you go. It does not have any docs on the back, you know, the dream of maybe you could connect an SD card or USB port but who we're kidding? The elevation, well, it's not that great. It is a much better solution if you use like an extra monitor. Check out the VersaStand, I'm a big fan of it. I'm Scott Stein and that's a quick look of the VersaStand for the iPad.
