    I've seen a number of desktop iPad stands offered by many differnt companies but I'm just not sure what one to buy - does anybody have any recommendations at all.

    Thanks in Advance

    Thats a nice little stand looks pretty well made as well. I took another look on the old search engine last night & came up with the one at the link below. Its quite a change from what I had originally visioned but the guys who discussed my requirements told me that this was better than what i had in mind.

    They are even going to personalize the front for me :D

    It should be here within about 3-5 Working Days so watch this space for a review

    PS sorry if this drags in the page titles no sure how to change that yet

    Sh** the bed! How much? :p

    I love it. Would look superb in my home office. Completely superfluous to needs, sooooooo so expensive and useless to boot, but heck, how cool is it?

    I know it was a little on the steep side but they are going to personalize the whole lot of it - it will look great as it means that when all my sales staff are busy my customers can use the iPad to view stock & read spec a few nice meaty sales & it will pay for itself

    Cant say I like the design of the first one so much but the second one isnt too bad - i'm using mine though more as a silent sales man rather than something to hold my pad when i'm in bed :D

    Your OP was vague and requested "any recommendations at all." For best results, best to be specific when creating a thread.

    There are hundreds, if not thousands, of iPad stands.

    If I were looking for commercial iPad stands, I'd google that phrase, because you'll find a boatload. There are also lots of fabricators that will build to order, and you can negotiate a better price if you order in quantity.

    When googling, putting a phrase in quotes helps filter for better results generally, but sometimes narrows too far.

    That's good. Friendly heads up: I've seen iPad stands in some commercial settings that look fine for normal adult use, but seem flimsy enough to topple easily if kids are in the mix, or if there's a klutzy adult around.
