Monitor iPad Stand
It's not exactly the coolest way to put the iPad on a stand, but it gets the job done. Let me know what you think.
- case I rarely use.
- Monitor stand from Dell monitor. (Bought a new stand that raises and lowers)
- Velcro Strips
Cost, well Free for me because I had everything. But if you have an old LCD monitor with a removable stand, it should be similar. The velcro was like 3 bucks.
If you were to buy everything now, a monitor stand ~$15. Any cheap hard plastic case $10-$20. Velcro $3. So about ~$33 bucks. Cheaper than most stands out there, and looks better than most.
It's really secure, I was worried at first but after using it for a while, I'm more confident. Works horizontally too, and I don't have to worry about having my iPad out of the case.
dude, pair that with a wireless keyboard (sure, would cost more...but woah) and you've got the future of personal computing!
Nice dude. Hmm...I think i still have my old dell monitor lying around....
Haha, way ahead of you. I've been using a Logitech keyboard lately since I need the number pad, so I've been using my wireless keyboard with the iPad.

I'm going to pick up one of These off of ebay. I'm going to see if I cant find a way to mount it securely without velcro, haha. The stand moves up and down, rotates (So I cant swap to potrait or landscape without taking it off the stand), and swivels.
Necessity, the mother of invention. Clever people here on this forum! :D
That is pretty cool. I Never could make anything like it. The best chance of me getting one like it is to buy one already made.
I like to have a monitor stand for my ipad but..best buy wants About 60 bucks for one. Which I find freaking crazy but what do I know?
I guess they figure if you can afford an iPad then you can afford to pay outrageous prices for accessories!
There is a really nice leather case made for the iPad that I would love to have --
Leather iPad Case w Pocket - Leather iPad / iPhone Case - Temple Bags Store
But at $205.00, I think I will pass! (But my birthday is in May if you guys want to start a collection!)
New one is complete. A little more difficult than I anticipated, but it works.
Will post pictures soon.
Alright crappy Gif. The stand needs some adjustments, or a lot. But it took a lot of work, at first, the stand wouldn't work because the iPad didn't weigh enough to offset the stands spring. So I jerry rigged some weight in a pain in the ass way, but it works (reason why it isn't centered in landscape).
Anyway here it is..
